I'll 2nd that. We went over this summer and there is no problem with distance between them, only the amount they charge. Between Ceduna and Norseman the price gets up to $1.35 (diesel) If you run gas its available in some places (not sure if its everywhere). Make sure you go to the Eyre bird obsevatory and Fowlers bay. The road from Norseman directly to hyden (wave rock) is a great dirt road and worth the short cut.

Gday , just came back to Wickham (n/w WA) from Whyalla (SA) in an auto gas powered Patrol and had no probs finding petrol along the way though the servo's between Ceduna and the border are closed after 9pm (i think). Also between border and Norseman all are shut after dark. Would suggest driving daylight hours only as i collected 2 roo's along the Nullabor (spelling ?) they are thick down there.
PS does anyone know where i can get cheap plastic body pieces to replace the 3 i lost (roo's). I need the drivers side rear wheel arch flares and the front bumper (plastic) edge piece (pass side).
Hope Helps
Cheers and cold beers

I run a LC on lpg. Got as far as Qld and had the same petrol in my tank as when I left Kalgoorlie. Don't do what many people do and rush the Eire Hwy. There is alot to see

Having just driven Mildura to Perth in early January, The longest distance between fuel supplies is approx 200km.

The roadhouses are spaced at approx 200 km intervals from Ceduna to Norseman.

Have fun and enjoy the drive.

Cheers

Same info again. Use caltex.com.au or simaliar and search for fuel and times.
