There are gas stations at regular intervals. Stop at no less than a half tank. Once you cross from Alberta to the NWT, there are specifac places to stop. Indian Cabins is about 15 miles south of the ALberta/NWT border. Basically just a restoaurant and a gas station. Enterprise is a tiny community on the junction of the road to Hay River and Ft. Smith. It has a couple of gas stations. You will be turning (curving actually) left to head to Yellowknife. You can gas up there. From Enterprise the next gas stop is on the other side of the river. It is in Ft. Providence. The gas station/store is on the right about 6 km (4 miles) from the ferry dock. Trip from Enterprise to the Ferry is about 130 km (bu7t of course check google). The big gap hyappens after that so you misty gas up in Ft.Providence. Rae- Edzo has gass off the road a bit (about 6 miles). Best bet is a full tank to Yelloknife.

Alberta is much more populous as are the gas stations.

There are a few places to stay:

In Alberta:

Peace River

Whitecourt

High Level

In NWT:

Hay River - but it's off the highway

Fort Providence - again it's off the highway

Hope that helps
