There are no large "gas stations" on the island but there are many places to fill motorbike and tractor tanks from barrels. This pump works without electricity by turning the crank on the side. There is no island-wide electrical system but most resorts operate their own generators for part of the night. We ate lunch in this restaurant one day. Jerry can be seen in the background finishing a delicious soup.
