Ambulance is a medical device that transports patients to medical facilities such as hospitals. Patients are usually treated on an outpatient basis.
Ambulances are used to respond to medical emergencies by emergency services. For this purpose, they are usually equipped with hazard warning lights and sirens. They can quickly transport paramedics and other emergency responders to the scene, put on emergency equipment, and transport patients to hospitals or other emergency rooms. Most ambulances use a van or pickup based design. Others are motorcycles, cars, buses, planes and boats.
In general, a vehicle is considered an ambulance if it can transport patients. However, it depends on the legal case whether a non-emergency vehicle used to transport patients (also called an ambulance) is considered an ambulance. These vehicles are usually (although there are exceptions) not equipped with life support equipment and are usually equipped by less skilled personnel than the ambulance crew.
The reason you don't see ambulances at gas stations is because they are always secured. In other areas, ambulances are loaded into hospital rooms wherever there is a pump. During breaks, which depend on gas stations, they refuel at night when there are fewer emergencies and therefore they are never seen.
