"Not many gas stations" Western Fjords Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Melanie88

Western Fjords Warnings and Dangers: 2 reviews and 1 photos

Before you enter the fjords, fill up your gas tank, and better yet, if you have an extra tank, fill that too. There were not many gas stations once you get into the fjords. I did find one, but I had no cash, and the station owner did not take credit cards. He was extremely generous and gave me 10 liters of gas! Incredible! He was worried that I may not have enough gas to make it to the next gas station. If I ever make it back to the fjords, I know exactly where to go to repay his generosity. (Sorry I can't tell you where it is. I would just know it when I see it)
Keep in mind, if you have an extra gas can, by Icelandic law, it must be transported on the outside of the vehichle. It must be secured tightly. There is a big fine if you are caught with a gas can inside your car or in your trunk.
