Gas stations between Forks and Hoquiam?

Discussion in 'Kitsap' started by HyperRider, Aug 31, 2012.


  1. Considering a ride around the peninsula and an not sure if there is a gas station between Forks and Hoquiam. My Hyper needs a fuel stop at about 100 miles. So I might be pushing the last few miles.

    Anyone know os a statin along 101?

    Thanks in advance.
     
  2. There is one between there... (1).... just make sure you fill up in forks though. Sorry but I forgot the name but it's on the left at the entrance to some sorta camping area I think. And the sign for the one you'll see first on the right doesn't have gas any more. Its a few miles past that one though.

    I'm sure someone will chime in with an exact location and name.
     
  3. Thanks Thrifty. Appreciate the note.

    This should get you there without turning you into a pedestrian.
     
  5. Thank you Texas!

    I assumed that there had to be one or two stations along that road. It's populated, albeit lightly, they gotta drive too.

  6. Also, if you haven't checked it yet, you may want to check the WSDOT site for construction alerts. I wanted to do the 101 peninsula loop last Friday but there was a ton of road work happening.

    Not a problem. I'm used to holding the hands of Duc riders from Fantasy Island. :mfclap:

    So when are you going to jump into the photo tag game?
     
  8. BTW, there is a small gas pump (not a station) with a card reader at the intersection of 101 and 113. It's premium............and ethanol free :) about 10-15 minutes before Forks, right side of the road, a couple miles past the Hungry bear Cafe. I highly recommend the loggers breakfast................:)
     
  9. LOL

    I guess Ducs and BI go hand in hand. Hate to be a stereotype, but I love the Duc and gotta love the amenities of the Island.

    Been monitoring the photo tag game and actually know where many of the photos have been taken or recognize them as I go by. Would play, but don't get out enough.
     
  10. Thanks for the tip Pete. Will watch for it on my way.
     
  11. trexasaurus, thanks for the tip. Will check the interwebs for possible obstructions ;-)

    In most circles that is considered a pot luck or a family reunion sized offering. When you go for the loggers breakfast arrive hungry.
     
  13. At risk of a threadjack (sorry HyperRider)-Hi ya Pete! Hope it's going good at your new digs!

    Hi hello. I'm on the island too.

    See you around sometime.
     
  15. admittedly it's a touch under a half gallon, but I've considered throwing one of these in my gear when I'm going somewhere fuel stops are few and far between msr fuel bottle.

    Sealed and designed to go in a backpack, so it should avoid the normal pitfalls of leaking & such.
     
  16. Thanks slugsgomoo.

    Was considering something along these lines. Managed the trip nicely, plenty of gas stations along the route.
     
  17. Hey BCJ,

    Thanks for the post. Perhaps we'll cross paths on the island. I tend to ride the back roads across the hood canal bridge or south of Bangor on the canal to bear creek road and the Dewatto area. Less cars, more fun ;-)
     
  18. Me too, sorry Hyper, Hello Tom! It's ok out here. At least I'm close to my family. Miss all you crazy hooligan bikers though!

    I think it might have been ME that TexasL was referring to - re: hand holding!!
    He is FUNNY that way!!
    Go find a WaterMAN and snag a TAG!!
