Police are searching for two men after a service station worker was threatened during an armed robbery at a service station in Melbourne's north-west.

Two men pulled up at the service station on Melton Highway in a blue BMW 3 series sedan about 2.15am on February 4 and were seen filling several jerry cans with petrol.

One man then went into the store and was caught on CCTV pulling out what police now believe to be an imitation gun, using it to demand cash and cigarettes.
