Moderators,

Please move this to TBTU. This is not a suggestion.

And, be sure to post gas prices for the station to help your fellow Toronto Gas Buddy members. The station's gas prices are something they'll likely check before they check to see what the station's hours are.

There is a check box in the MSL if a station is open 24 hours per day. If that checkbox is not open, it is reasonable to assume the station is closed in off hours. I think most people simply assume that stations may not be open in off hours.

Once you have earned 10,000 points, you will be eligible to edit station records in the Master Station List, which is accessible from the banner menu. You can then put the hours as you have written them in the Station Notes field for anyone who cares to look at the record (they will not be visible anywhere else on the site).

Should you wish to write a suggestion at this time that Gas Buddy provide data fields for hours of operation (such as there are for the features of Google maps) that could be visible on the various pages of the site, you can first see what others have suggested by looking in the Suggestion Tracking List for links to past suggestions. You might even take a look at how Google does it, but as I remember, their method doesn't cover all situations, so it would probably take some extra thought to come up with a one-size-fits-all hours format.
