Most locations are branded Chevron and Extra Mile. The company has 99 Chevron Extra Mile sites, 36 G&M Food Marts with Chevron fuel and 13 G&M Food Marts with G&M-branded fuel. The chain remodeled five sites in 2015 and added E85 at 13 sites, in partnership with Pearson Fuels. G&M Oil continues to look for expansion opportunities in the Southern California area.
Sites are located throughout Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego counties, and the company has plans to continue to expand. While the primary method of expansion has been to acquire existing locations and upgrade them, G&M Oil Co. has built many stations from the ground up.

The stores offer regular monthly promotions that are advertised on the company website<http://www.gmoc.com>, in signs at the pump and inside the store.
