Biz2Credit ( does a large no. of financing deals for gas stations. Gas Stations are valued based on C Store sales and value of the real estate. The gallon-age is used to figure out how busy the gas station is normally selling gas is not very profitable business.

If you are going to use a multiple, you don't use Gross Profit, you use Discretionary Cash Flow, or Adjusted Net Profit. And the multiple would be 1 to 1.5, as a general rule. But that is not a great way to figure that out. There are too many variables involved.
