    Local servo undergoing reno’s so for inmates ride planning nearest fuel will be Ebor to the SW and at the bottom of the mountain at Thora. Both are daylight hrs opening.

    Coffs Nambucca and Armidale would be nearest 24/7 fuel

    Ebor can be unreliable. One day we were there the petrol was empty and the truck not due for four hours. We were ok as we were going to stay behind the pub anyway, but a couple of cars heading for Armidale were not going anywhere.

    Local reports have the servo closed for AT LEAST 3 months, possible up to 7 months. Total rebuild supposedly. Tyringham usually has fuel. The next down that road towards Grafton is Coutts Crossing, one of my favourite servo's cause it has a pub behind it. If you come in via the bush from the North through Ulong then Lowanna has fuel but best to check the opening times, otherwise it is Coramba, Nana Glen or Glenreagh.

    There was a news article about this closure a few weeks back.
    One of the main concerns was for a few oldies who have restricted licences.
    Hopefully they have friends who can bring them a can of fuel when they need it or a mobile fuel supplier who will help out. Someone must be doing bulk diesel deliveries to the farms who could carry a drum of petrol.

    Access diesel fuels has a container fueling depot at Ebor servo the local farms and trucks use them. Open 24/7 if you have a card.
