Where is the most convenient petrol station to fill up if we have some spare time before boarding the Eurotunnel train? Is it possible to fill-up after checking-in?
We will be driving from London.
Stop 24 is located just minutes from the Eurotunnel and the Port of Dover. It is the UK's largest service station and until recently it was the newest. It also doubles up as a 'Port Early Arrival Facility', meaning that anyone early for their ship or a train can stop by and rest before heading onwards.
As well as a petrol station, it has other facilities including a KFC & Subway if you are hungry.
Address: Stop 24 Services, Stanford Intersection, Hythe, Kent CT21 4BL
Once you have entered the complex there is zilch facilities for re-fuelling. Either fill up before entering or wait until you get to France - there is a petrol station on the left as you leave the complex. BTW be wary about carrying reserves - the EuroTunnel site explains better what you can carry as a reserve.
