    24 hour gas stations between Toronto and Key Largo

    Hello All,
    I'm planning a June trip to dive with Conch Republic Divers.
    My question to all members is about 24 hour gas stations. I've attached the route that I'll be taking. Typically I leave Toronto at 4am so getting gas is not a problem. However for this trip I will be Toronto at 10pm and really don't want to run out of gas.
    If I may get any gas stations along this route that will be open during the wee hours. Hopefully someone has these addresses saved on their GPS.
    Thanks in advance,
    Chris

    Drive until your gauge reads 3/4 full, stop at the next open station you see, wash, rince, repeat.

    Re: 24 hour gas stations between Toronto and Key Largo

    I would bet there is probably about 3000 24 hour stations in that route

    Make sure to fill up in Miami. Once you get south of there, through Homestead and then the Road to Nowhere (the last stretch that connects the Keys to the mainland, it can get isolated. Not sure if there are 24 hour stations in that last part.

    Re: 24 hour gas stations between Toronto and Key Largo

    Every interstate has plenty of 24-hour gas stations along it. Every two-digit interstate does, anyway - I-90, I-79, etc. Two-digit interstates are mostly for long-distance traffic, while three-digit interstates (e.g., I-190) are typically for local traffic near cities. Florida's Turnpike, being a long toll road, also has 24-hour gas stations at regular intervals that don't require exiting and re-entering through toll booths; if you've traveled the New York Thruway, you'll be familiar with the setup. So, for most of your route, you'll have plenty of options for 24-hour gas, and you won't need to know where the stations are ahead of time.

    The only potentially worrisome spots are that stretch of US-19 through bumf**k West Virginia (step 18), as well as US-1 (step 28). However, you should be able to fill 'er up immediately before those parts of the trip.

    Re: 24 hour gas stations between Toronto and Key Largo

    I would be happy to be of assistance Chris. For a small fee I can arrange these 7 items no one should be without on a diving road trip. Scroll down to photos.
    1) Towtruck- to make sure you get there without running out of gas
    2) Cop car- to make sure you don't get lost or have traffic trouble
    3) Tanker truck- because 1, 2 and 5) need gas also
    4) Helicopter- security
    5) Ambulance- in case the entourage reaches critical mass and has a pile up with it'sself on the freeway
    6) Carrier- you will need a place to stay and keep #4, economical if you think about it
    7) Floaties- I will give you my patented gear configuration and accessories for free

    Chris,

    I've done the drive to Florida many times leaving from Ottawa at 5pm after work and driving all night.
    There's never a problem finding gas along the highways.

    Have a good trip!
    Steve

    Thanks for the responses. My major area of concern is West Virgina and Virgina. On the Mountineer Highway I don't seem to remember there being any 24 hour gas stations. I know NY, PA, NC, SC, GA, and FL have 24 hours gas.
