Petrol stations in Cyprus
are modern and common in the towns. Most have attendants to fill your tank for you, although you will find a few that are self service.
Many major stations also have shops where you can buy auto accessories and food.
Mountain driving uses more fuel than you might think.
So if you are planning such a trip, be sure you have enough fuel to get you there and back. If you make a wrong turn, although the distance may not look far on the map, it can take you some time to find your way back to civilization.
Most petrol stations are closed for attendant service on Tuesday and Sunday.
This is not usually a problem though, as many have machines that accept bank notes, major credit and debit cards and therefore operate 24 hours. The cash machines have instructions in Greek and English.
often operate the system of handing the vehicle over to you with an empty fuel tank, so you return it empty. This can lead to problems at the end of your rental if you are not careful. This practice is slowly changing to the system of receiving and returning the vehicle with a full tank.
Petrol is unleaded
and 95 and 98 octane fuel is available. So check what octane your vehicle requires. There are other more expensive fuels, but you are unlikely to need them.
