    Hi folks,

    I'll be riding the Labrador Coastal Drive from Cartwright down to Blanc Sablon soon and was wondering if anybody here can tell me what the gas situation on that road is.

    I read that somebody "almost ran out of gas 280 miles (!) before fuel". When I look at this I see that the longest stretch is from Port Hope Simpson to Cartwright (187km).

    The least amount of extra gas I need to take the better.

    Just returned from that route.
    Fuel available in St. Barbie ( N.L. side)
    Pretty sure I saw pumps in West St. Modeste, Mary's harbour, Port hope simpson.
    Definately in Cartwright
    Longest stretch is Port Hope Simpson to Cartwright. ( 170 KM)
    Bring bug juice. Have fun.

    Great. I won't be leaving for another 4 weeks, hopefully by then the bugs will all be in bug heaven.
