IOM Peel camping trip Saturday 21st June

Nearest garage is 1 mile away apparently fuel is a pain on the IOM
Cypman (Ian) as kindly offered to help out with this so I'm sure everyone need not worry to much.
How much will you need roughly ?

Fuel Situation in the Isle of Man

Petrol

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.

Diesel

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!

To be honest Tim I could be wrong but I can't see you getting through 300 litres of fuel to IOM and back.

Tim it's about 78nm to peel from ty Calch so you'll probably use the same fuel as you did going to Ireland & back 👍
