Yarmouth and Ventnor Fuelling

Can anyone tell me if there is a petrol station within a short walking distance of Yarmouth Harbour.

I will need to carry the 25 Ltr outboard cans so don't want to lug it too far.

Also the same for the new harbour at Ventnor. And the Longitude and Latitude Co Ordinates please.

Any help would be welcome.

Regards Nick R.

I wanted to try and save some money for me and my mates by refuelling at a Super store or Garage.

Cheers anyway.

Their is a small garage where you can get fuel in Yarmouth, only about a five minute walk, with regards to Ventnor their is no fueling facility in the basin, but their ia a garage if you want a hike up a very steep hill. Sounds like you are planning a trip round the Island. Wouldnt recommend it on small amounts of fuel.

Just thinking about it at the moment. I shall be carrying 70 Ltrs, which is a fair amount for the size of my boat, but I've always thought its always better to be prepared and have a backup plan available.

Anyway you can never have too much fuel. Unless your on fire that is.

Hi Simon,

Do you have an address for the garage that I can locate on Autoroute.

Is it the national Garage at the following address:-

Mill Road
Yarmouth
PO41 0
United Kingdom

I found that on Autoroute.

Any idea of any funny opening hours.
