The island of Lefkada is well equipped with petrol stations.
Most of the petrol stations were built in the eastern side of the island, near to the most popular villages. You can find more facilites in the area of Lefkada town, Nidri, Vasiliki, Lygia. In the western side of the island the stations are not typical, so you do better if you are not leaving the fuel tank empty. In these side of Lefkada the main stations are located near to Agios Nikitas.
The stations are operated mainly by local families, but some of them are contracted with known petrol companies like EKO, Shell, BP, and some other – these facilites use these logos officially. The dimensions of the stations are varied, most of these facilites in Lefkada can be find in smaller size. However the quality of the fuel at all the stations is good, you do not have to be afraid of its bad quality and ruining your engine. The stations in some cases don’t accept credit cards, so every time ask staff for payment options!
Unleaded 95 / Diesel
At all the stations you can find unleaded (95 benzine or gasoline) and diesel fuels both. The standard octane rating at the stations is 95, which is recommended for all the gasoline cars. In the shops of the petrol stations you can find some other liquids for your car like lubricants, motor oils, windshield washer, and other necessary things.
If your car is running on LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), there are 4 LPG stations in the island: two facilites are located in Lefkada town, and other two are waiting for customers in Nidri and in Vasiliki.
Good to know, that the prices of the fuels are slightly higher than in the mainland, but this can be said to every Greek island.
