Description

This is the last fuel station en route to Peru. You can get as much fuel as you need at national price. We recommend filling up in Vilcabamba just to be sure if you want to pay the less expensive rate (fuel costs in Peru are reportedly MUCH higher than in Ecuador).

They will not accept USD $50 or $100 notes. Bank in town will change them (reluctantly)

Report Check-In

They don't have Super, just the regular one. When we arrived at 6PM on 12 of Feb, gas station was closed with yellow tape and a police car was there to tell everybody who asked that the gas is going to be only in 18 hours. So, we stayed in Calem Hotel and waited till morning to get the fuel. You can pay only cash, they don't accept cards. Can't confirm the 20gallons limit per car, since we drive 4Runner.

Report Check-In

Only 20 gallones per car! But the price was the same like in other towns in Ecuador.

Open for business, selling the sweet cheap gas Ecuador is known for.

Was not able to buy disel from here. Last spot to buy was a small town called Palanda. 1,50 for a gallon of diesel there. If you gead towards Peru then its a small place right after you exit the town on the right side. They have big sign “inflamables”

Water available to fill camper tanks.

NB will try to correct the position as the one given here is too close to town and on the wrong side

Report Check-In

This is the last fuel station en route to Peru. We were told that we could not buy more than $10 worth of fuel here. Even though we were able to convince them to fill our tank, we recommend filling up in Vilcabamba if you want to pay the less expensive rate (fuel costs in Peru are reportedly MUCH higher than in Ecuador).
