Fuel on Fraser Island is usually more expensive than fuel on the mainland. For this reason, those conducting their own 4WD tour often fuel up on the mainland and bring additional fuel in a jerry can if they are able. However those spending several days and nights on the island will likely have to fuel up at some point, where these five location will come in handy! It's recommended that you plan your routes accordingly so you do not run out of fuel in an inconvenient place on the island!
