Where to get petrol in our MSR stove


Posted: Sat, Oct 1, 2016, 20:03

Hello, we are going to do a 4-5day trek on GR20 in mid October. Because the refuges will be probably already closed at this time, we take everything with us - a tent and also the liquid fuel stove, which runs on petrol. Could you please advise us, where we can fill it in with the petrol (at any gas station)?

We flight to Bastia, but we won´t probably have enough time there, since we immediately leave to Corte, where we want to start our trek.

Thank you very much for any advice.

Thank you very much for your answer. I have already printed the map of Corte with petrol stations. It´s good to know, that it shoudn´t be a problem take it in any petrol station.

Last time, we got our fuel from the petrol station at the Crucetta/Borgo roundabout approx. 3km west of the airport. This is where the road to the airport forks off the North-South route N193, and where you will also find the bus stops and the Carrefour supermarket.

This may be relevant for all those planning to start their walk in Conca. If you were getting on the GR20 in Calenzana, there is a a petrol station on the main road approx. half way between the Gite de Etape and the start of the GR20.

Have fun,
