Gas stations in Crete are plentiful. You can find them anywhere except for the most remote areas of the island. They are run very efficiently and provide a variety of services to travellers. All of them also offer unleaded fuel.
Gas stations in Crete are open for business every day except on Sundays. During the high summer season (May 1 to September 30), they are open from 6:00 am to 10:30 pm, and from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm during winter (October 1 to April 30).
Although gas stations in Crete are mostly closed at night and on Sundays, the law requires that at least one of the gas stations in each area should stay open during these times. This is to prevent travellers who need to refuel from getting stranded out of nowhere. If you are driving through a town desperate for gas at night or on a weekend, just go and ask a taxi driver or a police officer, or any local you may come by. They will point you to the nearest gas station that is open at that time.
