if you needed to buy fuel there is fuel available on the water at Menai Bridge, bit more expensive than forecourt prices but sometimes useful, or you walk to the garage at Gallows Point nr Beaumaris, only a couple of minutes, other than that not many more options, but I guess there will be the odd garage with walking distance

Thanks. Hoping to do the around isle of Wight thing a month before so that will give me a more accurate estimate of usage.
If I haven't worked it out beforehand!

Hi Steve, it's next to the floating jetty in Menai town, called Porth Daniel, phone no is 01248 717784, always best to ring before you moor up to get them moving, service ain't the quickest if you remind me I'll give them a call the week before to make sure they have fuel in stock, should be ok by Easter though from memory is was around 20p @ litre dearer than forecourt prices last year but sometimes needs must, we've used it when I wasn't fit enough to lug jerry cans about

you can also fill up at Conwy and Deganwy marinas, both similar prices to Menai I think

I'm looking forward to this trip

What happened to the pub at Porth Daniel? You have to walk up round the corner now to the Liverpool Arms.
