    There are their hours of opperation, and then there is the reality you might show up and wait for 1/2 hour for the guy to get back from his coffee break.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Interesting. Last summer the price was about the same in Anchorage as it is now and the cost at the dock was $4.35 - $4.45. It depends on when they get their fuel deliveries. It will be interesting to see what it is by mid May.

    Rob, I will trade you bills.

    it would be nice if they had a fuel station further out say on Esther or Perry. my fuel tank is small so my range is not that far, but the cost of fuel to do that would probably be really expensive. I'm hoping one of these days it will be glass calm so I can try and make a run to Montague

    Are those winter hours? It says closed on sundays but I don't remember that being a summer thing...(not positive, though)

    I believe it has to be in approved containers.....Also I called the fuel dock 3 days ago and I was told that under 100 gallons of unleaded was $4.18 and above 100 gallons was price dependant on amount of fuel....so more fuel less price...

    Unless it's changed you're only allowed to carry 6 gal in portable tank through the tunnel. If your tankage if permanent it's whatever fuel you can hold.

    While the fuel costs are higher than town, it's less than hauling your boat to Girdwood to fuel up then having to pay another tunnel and launch fee

    IT must be winter hours because I generally refuel every sunday on return.

    I agree Paul. It's a wash if ya leave your boat there. But the limit for fuel thru the tunnel is 12 gallons. I was thinking it would be worth buying a large fuel tank for the bed of my truck for cases like this. Might seriously look into it now. $4.18 a gallon for gas isn't bad for the convenience.

    Unless the gas tank is plumbed into the truck fuel system they won't let you through with it. Meaning it feeds your trucks tank/engine without touching any lines or opening your truck fuel cap.

    You can haul in 55 gallons of diesel though in the bed of a truck.....odd.

    I was thinking about putting a fuel bladder in one of my fish holds... an extra 100 gallons that are out of sight. I have never had my boat checked, but they have asked a few times about extra fuel...

    I usually take my boat home with me and fill in Anchorage, this summer I am going to bring some barrels with me and fill those in Whittier for extra range.
