Fuel Situation in the Isle of Man
There is no dockside petrol in the Isle of Man. It is only available from garages in your own cans. The nearest garage is Brown Bobby's which is about 1.5 miles from the jetty in Douglas, or at Ford's garage about 1 mile from Peel Marina. As far as I know there is no “can” limit on the amount of petrol you can purchase in one go. You will need sufficient cans and taxi/other transport to fetch the fuel.
There are two dispensing points at the dockside. One in Douglas, right by the landing staging and one in Peel, just outside the flapgate. Operation requires you to purchase a fuel card from the Fishermans Coop (boat chandlery) right by Peel Marina. It is only open Mon-Fri office hours. You must state and buy the exact amount that you will require. You must then take your boat to the discharge point, put your card in the machine, enter your code, climb down the iron stairs to your boat and refuel. It is definitely a two man job as the machine will time-out before you descend the stairs!
