Bird on a Wire (1990)

After helping to put away a drug dealing FBI Agent, Rick Jarmin is relocated under the Witness Relocation Program, where he works at a gas station in Detroit, Michigan. Fifteen years later, his ex-fiancee Marianne Graves happens to recognize him and Rick decides it's not safe to stay. The FBI Agent, a man named Eugene Sorenson is released from jail on parole, and along with his partner Albert Diggs set out to get rid of Rick. But when Marianne goes back to the station to talk to Rick, Eugene and Albert show up to kill him. Luckily Marianne comes to his rescue and they flee in her car.
