A Xoomer Gas Station in Easter Basin.

Tanker-GTASA-withtrailer

A Xoomer Tanker.

Xoomer is a major petroleum refining and sales company in the State of San Andreas as depicted in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It operates a fleet of fuel tankers and maintains filling stations throughout the state. Its filling stations are easily identified and distinguished by a large "X" rotating in front of the filling stations. Carl Johnson's garage in Doherty, San Fierro is a run-down, abandoned Xoomer filling station with a faded sign displaying the company name still visible above where the fuel pumps would have been, but there is no rotating 'X' however as it was likely pulled down when the location was abandoned.

After several missions this old filling station becomes a successful chop-shop/auto garage and also serves as a safehouse, with a garage large enough to hold three vehicles.

Xoomer is most likely a parody of Exxon, as the "X" in "Xoomer" is similar to the double "X" in Exxon's logo. It is never explained why Xoomer abandoned the filling station that becomes Carl Johnson's chop-shop/auto-garage.
