Is diesel gas readily available?

Hello again! As we sit with our maps and lists for our trip this coming Summer to Cape Breton, I need to know if diesel gas is easy to find. Hubbie thinks I'm nuts but here in crowded Massachusetts, we have to plan some short trips to the gas stations that have this for his car- which we are driving on this trip. We will likely go from PEI to St Ann/ Baddock area then back over to the Mabou/Margaree Valley areas over the week.

As always thanks all!

Yes, diesel is easy to find. Most gas stations have diesel on hand.

there is no problem finding diesel in Nova Scotia and on Cape Breton Island . Practice always staying at half full. When in doubt, watch and talk to a young guy driving that big huge half ton truck as it's likely diesel, and most of the fishing boats use diesel .

From the entry point at Port Hastings ,, you have diesel in Whycocomah , Inverness, Baddeck , at a Wilson's just South of Cheticamp (cheaper than in the village of Cheticamp ) , North East Margaree and certainly in Ingonish.

Between Halifax and cape Breton, the cheapest is at the Atlantic Super store just before Antigonish , you get 3.5 cents off and another cheaper one is the Caper Gas one in Whycocomagh .

Thanks Caperbeach! Always good to know so we don't have to switch cars.
