look up [URL="http://www.rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=5447&highlight=rib+cruise+baltic"
we headed from Chatham to Ijmuiden, Holland where there is fuel and the next day to Esbjerg, Denmark where we got to on full tanks (250 Nm) mind you I am talking of diesel.
The Estonians who took their Parker 900Baltic (2 x 225 Opti) in May from Littlehampton to Estonia headed also to Ijmuiden and then to the Kiel canal. They had problems in getting petrol and on a few occasions had to take a taxi to ferry jerry cans from the petrol station to the rib.
In Denmark some marina fuel stations are not manned and you will need cash to pay as the machines do not accept credit cards. Perhaps Rene could give you more info
