A man is accused of dousing himself and an Adelaide service station worker in petrol and threatening to ignite the fuel.

Police were called to the siege at Modbury North service station, in Adelaide's northeast, just after 5.30am on Tuesday and negotiated with the man for an hour before arresting him.

The 44-year-old has been detained under the Mental Health Act and is being assessed, while the service station worker is unhurt.
