information

On the front side, there is a pun in German: "Spirit - high octane" is a rather silly slogan I'd seen on some shirts. "Sprit" is an informal word for gas, alcohol, etc. In this context, "high octane" refers to the gas rating. For a straightforward look, I added a gas pump symbol, and rendered the entire front part in monochrome.

This is the front side. Go to the back side. Note that there are several more versions available.

creation

I did a small sketch for the gas pump and the letters, but it was mostly a freehand thing.
