Gas on the Trans Canada Hwy

I've looked on the web, but can't really find what I'm looking for. I'm planning a trip to Hyder in August and am trying to locate the gas stations along the way. I'm looking at taking the Trans Canada Hwy 16 through Regina and Edmonton. Does anyone know of a map with gas stations on that road; or suggestions for a better way?

Thanks.

I've used google maps, found the route, and then zoomed in following the roads to locate the stations..

Thanks, that's plan B!

I was hoping there was a map with the information, but haven't found anything.

Not familiar with the area but looking at the map, looks to be a fairly large town every 100kms or so with several smaller places in between each.

Can't see you having any problems but hopefully a local inmate will chime in.

On Google maps, just type in Gas Stations and they all pop up on the map, with links. Easy.

Good lord man, contrary to popular opinion, it's not Siberia up here.
Chances are if there is a town on the map it has fuel so you'll be fine.
You might have a problem if your bike cannot do 200km on a fill.

Actually, I'm kidding. You'll need a jerry can and spare tires witb studs because
The snow may be deep soon.

The Gas Buddy app for your phone might be useful as well, assuming people from that area report prices.

The nice thing is that you can zoom in, switch to earth view and confirm that they are / were there, at least when the satellite took the shot. You can also switch to street view for confirmation. You can roll the cursor over lots of them and get a website for some as well. When I build a track for a trip I do this for gas stations, restaurants, and hotels or campsites as well. It isn't 100% but fairly close.

Side note

You probably already know this but the Trans-Canada (Hwy#1) passes through Regina and Calgary.
Yellowhead Highway (hwy#16) goes through Edmonton.

I might not know that. Yahoo Maps is calling the Trans Canada Highway Highway 16. Time to get out a good paper map.

August is when most gas stations start switching to winter fuel. If your bike isn't set up for winter riding conditions (ie:snow,ice,-40c/f, studded tires) you may get stopped at the border. Most of the stations around Calgary and Edmonton start closing and boarding up around that time...
