We fill your watercraft with only Non-Oxygenated, Non-Ethanol fuel. Why? Ethanol is alcohol and will absorb water into gas. Also, gas containing ethanol is not as stable, lasting less than 3 months. Ethanol fuels are the wrong choice for marine engines.

Our gas dock will provide you with all of your refueling, sanitary and fresh water needs.
