Ocracoke - gas is available at Anchorage Marina




I wish the article said how much per gallon gas is at the marina. Marina gas is usually much more expensive.

Of course marina gas might end up being cost-effective rather than leaving the island just to fill the tank.

Hopefully it's priced high enough to discourage folks from depleting their supply. You really only need a gallon or so to make it to the next station in Hatteras, so the price per gallon shouldn't be too big a factor.

what a gas shortage on Ocracoke?


RE: Ocracoke - gas is available at Anchorage Marina




Marina gas is usually high test as most boat motors require 89 octane or better to run correctly. Many southern fuel stops that are near the water also carry no ethanol gas. Known as REC-90 in the Florida stations it’s a zero ethanol 90 octane fuel blend.
So not only is marina gas more expensive normally, it would also cost more because of the fuel grade.

For those that don’t know:
Regular- 87 octane
Mid grade- 89 octane
Premium- 91 octane (High test)

Being a boat owner myself the marina gas information you provide has been my experience. My sometimes faulty memory recalls gas at the Pirates Cove Marina costing an additional 65 cents a gallon compared to the Sunoco on the causeway in 2016.

An Ocracokers (sp) response to the original Ocracoke no gas thread read "Gas in Nags Head is generally 60 cents cheaper than here". Idle curiosity had me wondering how much additional a gallon of Ocracoke Marina gas would cost. .60 + .65 ????????
