[Talk-GB] Petrol Station tags

One thing very noticeable from looking at Petrol Station tagging in the
light of Ilya's Shell data is that name, operator and brand are used in
wildly inconsistent ways across the UK.

Personally I use:


   - *name*: if there is a displayed name of the form XXX Service Station.
   Sometimes I will duplicate the brand tag if there is no displayed name
   (largely because I am unsure whether CartoCSS displays brand or not. Note
   it looks that it does not
   <https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/issues/1874>)


   - *operator*: I hardly ever add this tag except for supermarkets (my
   local Waitrose petrol station has Waitrose staff and receipts, but is
   branded Shell), those places where the operator is clear from other
   businesses on site (e.g., motor dealer, car service/repair), and when the
   operator/company names is present n FHRS data.

   - *brand*: for supermarket brands and big firms (Shell, BP, Esso, Jet,
   Murco and (mainly in NI) Applegreen, Go,

Many petrol stations are privately owned business which franchise the brand
identity, it is rare that they are owned and operated by the brand owner.
These days most do not make much use of the name, which once would have
been in fairly common usage, so it's not too bad to use the brand name in
name.

The biggest problems is the operator tag. This, for some reason, has
frequently been used for the brand. (see v. long tabulation below). I would
suggest that we can improve the dataset of UK fuel stations substantially
by tidying up the tagging. As a bonus many can have address data added from
FHRS.
