    Most marinas will have gas on site. Not sure about that area since we r usually on the other side of TO, but I know Ashbridge's Bay Marina has very overpriced 87 octane if you are ever running out in the TO Island area.

    You can also get the info in the Ports Guides.

    All sorts of valuable info there.

    Are you riding long distances?

    We always arrive at the launch ramp with completely full fuel tanks in the watercraft, even if we expect to only be riding for a short time. Always better to have fuel left over at the end of the ride than to be running near empty.

    Gasoline at Marina locations will always be more expensive that roadside gas stations. About 25% more per liter, roughly.

    There is a fuel dock at the east end of the Outer Harbour Marina.

    If you carry a GPS with local Marine charts installed then it should have fuel dock locations marked or searchable.

    ^^^ thanks guys....

    I live in pickering, and i always go to Frenchman's bay with a full tank (home is 5 minutes away).. I just thought it might be cool to post fuel docks for an emergency or extend the fun a little bit more when you gauge shows low....

    What would be cool (and useful) is a list of fuel locations complete with GPS co-ordinate and info details, like business hours and grades of fuel available.

    Load the list into your marine GPS and always be able to find fuel when you need it!

    Anybody interested in a project?

    Agreed! I can't believe how cold it got. My feet are frozen lol. I don't know how accurate the water temp gauge is on my Seadoo but it claimed 9℃ just now.. last few times we were out earlier in the week it was close to 30℃ sometimes.

    I guess the storm turned up some of the colder water from the bottom.
