Recomendation on what to do.

I have In-Laws from China visiting and we are looking at going to IoW but i dont really no much about the place at all so all information would be greatfull only there for just over a day get there on a sunday afternoon and leave around mid morning on tuesday.

i have a few questions so any one who can answer any or all i would be so greatfull to.

1 i am travelling from oxford on a sunday morning, would it be better to get a ferry from southampton or portsmouth?

2 Where on the island would be best to stop thats good for things to do (sight seeing mainly) most beautiful place visually?

3 Anything that is a must do or see?

3 Petrol stations are they few and far between?

Any information would be greatful, inlaws first uk visit so need to get this right for my sake :p

Thank you
