Renting or have your own car?
Filling your car with fuel is essential. You can do so by visiting one of the petrol service stations around the islands.
Apart from filling your vehicle with fuel, in some petrol stations you may also find other commodities for your vehicle such as VRT checking, quick maintenance, car wash, small snack outlets and tyre pressure checking and repairs.
Since Malta is such as small island, finding a petrol station is not a problem as you find one in most of the villages. In large villages there are also more than one gas station.
