For drivers who own LPG cars, below are the pumps where you can fill up your car, as well as the new rule for ferry transport, so you need to pay attention when filling up your car that you don’t have more than 50% fuel in the tank before boarding.

New rules for transporting cars by ferry

A new law of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and the Coast Guard came into force and it applies to electric and hybrid vehicles, as well as vehicles on other alternative vehicles, such as liquid or natural gas.
For cars that use liquid or natural gas, the law dictates that the tanks must not be filled more than 50% of the total capacity.
For safety reasons, the batteries of electric and hybrid vehicles must not be charged more than 40% of the total capacity, with mandatory temperature control, and charging the battery on a ship or ferry is prohibited.

Liquid gas stations

When you go in the direction of Thessaloniki-Kavala-Keramoti highway, about 6km after Kavala, you will see the road sign to turn to Nea Karvali (Fillipos B’ and Kavala east). Follow signs to Nea Karvali and after 1,2km on the right side you will see a Shell gas station where you can put LPG, as well as other types of fuel, and the station also offers car wash with brushes, while during that time you can refresh in the restaurant in the shade. To reach Keramoti you don’t have to return back to the highway, but just continue the old road (which is parallel to the highway) for another 11,5km (which is in great condition) before turning to Keramoti (same turn as if you were coming from the highway, just the opposite directions).

Liquid gas stations on Tassos

On Thassos island, there is a large number of gas stations, where you can get petrol and diesel.

Here’s a look at gas stations in places:
Limenas: BP, Shell i Elin;
Skala Rahoni: Revoil;
Skala Prinos: BP;
Prinos: BP;
Skala Sotiros: EKO;
Skala Kalirahi: EKO;
Limenarija: Revoil, EKO, Aegean, Elin i Shell;
Potos: BP i EKO;
Skala Potamia: BP i EKO.

There are three gas stations with liquid gas (LPG/TNG). Two are located in Limenas towards the Marble beach, one is in Astris, Potos, and from 2017. one is also in Skala Prinos. Prices range from 0.88 to 0.93 euros. The working hours of these stations are usually up to 11pm.

On returning from Thasos, at the exit of Keramoti do not turn right to Kavala, but go left on the old road that leads through the village Nea Karvali (follow the signs Kavala - Xanthi). On the way out of Nea Karvali, the gas station is on the left side of the highway, and after 1,2km turn on the highway and follow the signs to Thessaloniki.

You can gather information not only about the locations of the gas stations, but also about the fuel prices on them, through the application available at this link here or directly here: It is possible to download the application if you travel frequently, or you can simply check the website/map whenever you need it.

Our Live from Greece member listed the LPG pumps on the way to Greece and Halkidiki:
“Given that we encountered some incorrect information on the Internet, I am transmitting information from the field.
Useful information for drivers of methane (CNG) vehicles traveling to Greece (Halkidiki, Thessaloniki and surroundings) via Macedonia:
-Serbia: The last methane pump in Serbia is when you turn off the highway to Leskovac, 8 km from the toll booth.
-Macedonia: First, in Kumanovo, as soon as you enter Kumanovo from the left side of the highway (you must continue 10 km ahead, then turn sharply to the right and return 10 km). The second one, the exit from the highway to Skopje airport, you pass 2 roundabouts next to the old airport, then to the right. There was something wrong with this one at the moment. Maybe it won’t work for a few days Treća, in Đevđelia on the left side of the highway at the very border. All three are M……..
-Greece: On the way out of Thessaloniki on the way to Halkidiki, only at one turn go straight, instead of turning left and it seems to me the second turn left and after about 3 km there is a pump, after it immediately left and you are back on the road for Halkidiki.
In Thessaloniki, it is written on the internal that there are 2 more pumps that we did not visit, because this one was on our way, so I can’t say if the information is correct.
Methane prices in Greece and Macedonia are the same as in Serbia. It is not true that they are twice as big.
These pumps meant a lot to us because we have a very small auxiliary gas tank (about 6 l), so this saved us, so maybe it will help someone else. “
