FYI: Gas at Schinnen

If you haven’t been frustrated by this already, here’s a little FYI to prevent some frustration in the future:If you are registered for gas in Germany, you can no longer purchase gas at Schinnen.Yep, it’s a sad catch 22, but all of us Germany folks have to use the new ESSO gas cards and they WILL NOT work at Schinnen. :(So, plan your trip accordingly. The ESSO in Wehr is probably the closest to Schinnen on the German side of the border and it’s an easy drive through Hillensberg to Schinnen. So, in a pinch when you’re driving on fumes, go there. 

P.S.  Check out the comments below… new smart phone apps are making this easy now!

    A helpful tool for finding Esso stations is an app for Android. There is probably one for Apple as well. This app works with the phone’s GPS and will guide you to the nearest gas station.

      Thank you, figanootz! There is an app for Apple as well. It’s called the Esso Fuel Finder and it’s free at the Apple iTunes store. :)
