Hello all,
I'm planning to take a week to meander around the state of Oregon in May, and I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good resource for fuel station locations. Not a problem for the most part, but they're likely to be scarce in the remote SE part of the state. Any help?

I use my Garmin GPS to tell me where stations are located on the fly. It works great. It will even take you there, then continue your original plan without a hitch.

Gas ststions

Wife and I tour Eastern Oregon about every year and never had a problem with gas other than last year with Denio being closed. We slowed down and made it fine to Paradise juntion 200 miles.:thumbup:

SE OR has some remote areas, but not THAT remote. Just fill up when you see a station and your 300+/- mile range will easily get you to the next one.

I know there are stations in Burns Jct and Jordan Valley (and maybe still a good Basque restaurant in Jordan Valley!) and you can't get more remote than that.

The major oil companies all have station locators on their websites.
A lot of the small towns only have mom-and-pop Kwikee-Stop type places. IIRC the one in Burns Jct is that.

If Denio is closed, then just north, Fields, had gas. But that as a couple years ago.
My TomTom didn't show Fields but listed Denio.

Get "GasBuddy" app for you phone, it has all kind of out of the way stations on it, along with the recent price of gas there.

Gas Buddy works great to let you know what stations are close

The best advice. You never know when one closed, or after closing hours, or the tank got rusty, or they can't afford a fill, or any other reason.

It's really boring but try riding at 50-55 and you can get good MPG.
Take some No-Doz first!
Oh, wait, Oregon is posted for 55! No problem.:biggrinjester:

You might not have very good cell coverage out in that part of SE Oregon. If you use Gas Buddy, check it while you still have coverage.

I got to 304 on the Cassiar Hwy before finding an open gas station, fully loaded with three large Givi bags and an oversized windscreen. '07 Wee.
