Fuel up in Finland

During the summer time many tourists drive around Finland with their own or a rental car. When running out of gas fueling up here in Finland can present quite a challenge.

You should know that in difference to many other countries most gas stations are self service stations. That means that you have to pay your gas in advance at the pump. Of course as always in Finland you pay by card. The amount you choose on the display is just the maximum you are willing to pay. So in case you want to fill up the tank completely choose a high number. Just the actual amount you took will be deducted from your credit card of course. After paying you normally have around three minutes to take the nozzle and fuel up.

There is always an option to choose your own language at the machines. If you just follow the instructions nothing much can go wrong.

Have a nice vacation!
