PBO does an annual Marina review. Not sure if I have a copy.

This won't be all fuel but is a start.

How dockside do you need

I would love to do a Round Britain trip. Planning on doing next year, all things being equal, so this is one step of the planning.
Need to be able to fill up boat directly without using Jerry cans.

Petrol or Diesel?

Is Jerry Can 100% no. Or is a 100m walk with a can from a handy petrol station OK?

You going round the top or taking the short cut?

What about Ireland?

If you are looking for petrol on the waterside - take your map of Britain and fold it between Lismore and Aberdour. Tear along the fold. Throw away the northern “half”...

Sorry I know that’s not very helpful but you’ll need to be creative to get petrol there, to the extent that people in a hurry look at having shore crew to shuttle them to petrol stations.

Yes, buy a recent UK marine Almanac, in it you will find lots of useful information including which mariners and other places do fuel and what type. If you need this for a round UK etc then definately buy one as information in it will be very useful.

Petrol,
Problem is quantity - will be needing 100s of litres.

Taking the short cut through the canal.

Thanks for the help
