Actually, we always get our gas on the day before we leave, and stop at that very station near Orient on our way home. We get more than we need to bring the tank back to the level that we received, to compensate for what we'll use getting home and to the airport.

Same here. Always gas up night before. Doesn't take much gas to get from resort to hertz. We always fill it up to full since we pick it up that way. Takes a few miles to drop it off from full.

I do know the exchange rate and have been getting gas in St Martin for at least 20 years. I know the attendant scammed me and I approached him but he wouldn't change his mind.

I always get out and watch the pump to make sure I am getting what I asked for. They also had self-service at that station where you could pay inside and then pump what you paid for. It wasn't always open but when it was, I would use it.

We found that out the hard way a few weeks ago heading back to the French side. At one time there was a couple near the airport, sure the price was high. But when you got to fill up you got to fill up!!! Now I think the only Station is the Texaco station as you said in Cole Bay. Thank God they were open on the late side 9-10pm-ish! Or we were sleeping in the car!! LOL!!! Never thought we couldn't find gas when we drove down that afternoon????

Lesley,

Don't remember if I mentioned this or not but we had no problems at all finding the SOL Station across from the Harley dealership. Thanx!!
