Longest distance without gas stations in your country

What's the longest stretch of road\motorway in your country without gas stations?
In Italy we have:
A29 Palermo - Mazara del Vallo 115km
A25 Torano - Pescara 92km

I saw a pic of a sign "fuel 500km" in Canada.

There are places in Canada where you may be 500 km from the nearest road, let alone gas station....

There's a gas station in pretty much every small town that any major highway passes through, so it depends on the distance between towns.

On Interstate 40 between Barstow, CA and Needles, CA it's 140 miles through the Mojave desert (temps routinely reach 120+ degrees F in summer). There's about one gas station. You don't want to run out.

Until few weeks ago there was a stretch of 82 km from A1 (Lukovica) to A2 (Otočec) without gas station (now they opened new gas station just about in the middle of that distance).

In Spain, different figures would be obtained depending on the criteria used, because you can fin a lot of rural routes with no gas stations. Also, some new motorways parallel to preexisting main routes may have no gas stations in very long stretches, but you can fin them in the old road if you take a smalll detour (i.e. A-66 from Merida to Seville: there are a lot of gas stations in old N-630 but only one or two with direct access in 190km of the new highway).

Here you have some maps of gas stations in Spain. You can see there the density of gas stations and verify that the farthest gas station from any point is not hundreds of kilometers away.
