Fuel on the falklands

Hi

In the Falklands soon for a week

Hiring a land rover

Can anyone advise on how to get fuel for the vehicle during my trip

I understand there will be places in Stanley but I will be leaving Stanley and heading over to Darwin/Goose Green or San Carlos areas?

Is it a matter of trying to buy some off the landowners etc if I am not back in Stanley again for five days?

Or load up with petrol cans?

Secondly, from the uk so will my phone or internet work at all down there or do I have to buy something to allow me access?

Again, is th r phone access different in Stanley compared to San Carlos etc

Thanks

Sure is the sole telecoms provider. I would buy a sim from them. Also check with them whether they connect with your UK provider.

Using your UK phone will be expensive. And, as far as I know, there is no free WiFi, anywhere. However, some places may offer it now. Phone signal is patchy due to the terrain.

As for fuel, the east Falkland circuit is about 145 miles. Your hirer should be able to advise where to refuel, but I never found it necessary, except on the West, at Fox Bay. I lived in Stanley, and didn't use fuel cans. Most people use diesel. HTH

Fuel outlet is at Stanley Services, on the bypass. Petrol is 130p per litre. Diesel is 76p per litre.

Phone prices and roaming charges are on Sure website.
