Gas in Gateway

Does anyone know if there is gas in Gateway, Co? Butler maps says there is but I don't remember seeing a station when I was through there a couple of years ago. I'll be coming across Divide road from Ridgeway and don't think I can make it all the way to Moab through John Brown canyon. About 200 miles is all I can get on my 990 and I don't know the total mileage across. Not a place I'd want to run out. Thanks.

I passed through there in May of 2014, and there was gas. I think it was at the general store, on the main road, not far north of John Brown road.

Pretty sure that's been gone for a while and the gas is a bit north on the right these days.
If not, a slight detour up to Whitewater and north to the edge of GJ would get you gas without having to backtrack too much to get to John Brown Rd.

I know there was gas at the new general store last fall after they moved it from the resort.

They moved the gas station away from the resort/museum property and is now situated about 1/4 mile east of the prior location on the north side. Gas station/convenience store with some tables out side. It's a nice stop.

Thanks for all the replys. Guess I don't have to alter my plans now.

+1 Got gas there last October. But very expensive I think maybe almost $6 /gallon

Thanks, I'll get just enough to make it to Moab. Of course, Moab can be pretty high, too.

I was there in May of 2012. That picture was taken in July 2012. I sure don't remember it, nor does my wife. Of course, I wasn't needing gas at the time. Glad to know it's there now.

The Gateway gas station was still inside the Gateway Canyons Resort at the time... it's now 1/4 mile up the road.

Years ago, our map was labeled (by me) as there is gas there.
That was for the gas station right at the store at the resort.
I'm sure all the well to do guests got tired of seeing dirty bikers, so the store and gas station went away. You're not driving one of these: http://drivenexperiences.com/driven-.../rental-fleet/ It was reported for a time that there is no gas in Gateway as the new station & store (east of the old one) had not opened yet.
Rest assured there is a solid reliable gas station there and a basic store for food supplies.
