Challenge is a New Zealand petrol brand of Chevron New Zealand (known as Caltex New Zealand until 2006).[1] Challenge stations are often found in small New Zealand towns, both in the North and South Islands. The petrol stations usually stock petrol and diesel and have amenities and a small convenience store.

Challenge was purchased by Caltex New Zealand from Rubicon in 2001. Rubicon, including the Challenge business, had been formed by the split of Fletcher Challenge earlier that year.[2] Challenge was originally formed by Fletcher Challenge and commenced retailing in April 1998.[3]
