False Creek Fuels, founded in 2011 by Certified Marina Manager, Mike Short who has 20+ years’ experience in marina management and marine fuels, owns and operates the long-standing marine fuel station in False Creek (Vancouver) featuring all new fuel storage tanks, piping and dispensing equipment along with a completely renovated store. The fuel station is centrally located in Vancouver at the entrance to False Creek and services all types of vessels including sailboats, power boats, commercial fishing vessels, tugs, water taxis and government vessels.

Marvin Griffin, President of ValvTect Petroleum Products, is extremely pleased that False Creek Fuels has been added to ValvTect’s growing list of Certified Marinas globally. “In addition to our Certified Marina in the Cayman Islands, we are looking at rapid expansion into the Toronto market this spring, further expansion in the Caribbean with our new strategic alliance with the largest independent fuel distributor on the islands, marinas in Panama and through European production at our sister company, into the United Kingdom,” he said.

False Creek Fuels has a simple mission: “False Creek Fuels shall provide the boating public with a marine fuel service that offers boaters unparalleled service with a can-do attitude, great convenience by ensuring we always stock products that boaters want, and by offering great value.”

Mike’s passion to provide the finest quality fuels to his customers is demonstrated with his commitment with ValvTect Marine Fuels,” he said.

“It is our mission statement that brought us to ValvTect Marine Fuels.
