Gas stations



GAS STATIONS
Greece is full of gas stations! You won’t face any trouble refuelling, but keep in mind that most gas stations are concentrated around the cities and along the national and main countryside roads. If you plan to go travelling in the mountains, make sure you leave with a full tank. On the maps of Greece that Road Editions has published almost all gas stations have been marked, so you can plan your route in advance keeping in mind how far your bike will allow you to go.
Official gas station opening times are 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays. Since 1992, though, opening hours have unofficially been left up to the owners, so most gas stations remain open till 9:00 p.m. and 10% of them never close. Also, keep in mind that the owner of an isolated or village gas station usually lives right next to it or above it, so if it isn’t too late you can always honk or ring his doorbell and ask for service.

PRICE OF GAS
Unleaded: about 1€ per litre

TYRE REPAIR SHOPS
Tyre repair shops can be found in every town, large or small. They are usually located near the entrance or the exit of the town and they remain open till late in the evening. Most gas stations serve as tyre repair shops as well, or they at least have the necessary equipment to help in case of emergency. Both tyre shops and gas stations that provide adequate vulcanising services are marked on the Road Editions maps. But much too often tyre shops not specialising in motorcycles don’t keep a stock of motorcycle tyres or inner tubes. They also lack a torque wrench, so after fixing the tyre it would be wise to make a stop at a good repair shop as soon as you can and to have the bolts tightened properly.
