Thats the million dollar question, I have only looked at the ones
within my stamping ground. All it proves is the the source data is

I do not deny that the import matches the hours stated on shell.co.uk,
but applying a sanity check. It is on the outbound side on a commuter
route into a major city, would any business selling fuel hope to
survive if it closes at 16:00 on weekdays?

I can apply local knowledge, it does not only open Mon-Fri 08:00-16:00, 
Sat-Sun 10:00-18:00 and those hours should look wrong to any mapper
looking at them. 

And, as its not a field in the import or in OSM, I will just ignore the
spelling howler on http://www.shell.co.uk/motorist/station-
But I am going to survey it :D
