Well, I saw a sign in the Netherlands (A1 east of Hengelo) indicating the next gas station was 124 kilometers away. The German border is some 12 km further.

Until 2006 or 2007 there was not a single gas station along the entire 241 km length of the A31 between Emden and Oberhausen.

For sure it is not. In this part of Germany gas stations are located very far from each other. Motorway A92 (München - Deggendorf) is 134km long and has not any gas stations. I drove on it several times and I know I must check my gas level before leaving A3 or A99 :-)
And every time I travel on A3 (I do it usually 2-3 times a year, the next time will be next weekend) I always notice how far the gas stations are from each other in that region.

Yeah, usually there is an "Autohof" available between two motorway gas stations.

Nope. It's an Aarco. Corner of Olympic and S Robertson Blvd in L.A.

Here in Kamloops we have two major truck stops. One at either end of town.

The west end is the Versatile:

And at the east end, is the Flying J (Called the Flying Fish Hook by truck drivers) :

They re-located the highway to build it too:

There is also a long stretch without service areas on A19. I think the sign right after Rostock gives something like 130 - 140 km.

A "Rest Stop" in Virginia is meant to be no more than just that - they're state-maintained, and they consist of separate parking lots for cars and large trucks, a small park with a few benches and short walking paths, and a building with toilets and a few vending machines. For anything of real substance, like fuel, food or a bed, you've got to take an exit ramp, along which you'll be greeted by signs indicating the businesses and services available on the intersecting road - motels, gas stations and fast food restaurants are the most common on such signs.

Slovenia, Hoče-Fram

This is the second largest Shell gas station for trucks in Europe.









I like this small one in Solčava

The Luxembourg gas station is also different from most other gas stations in Europe.

In most gas stations, you gas up and then you walk to the shop to pay. However, at the Luxembourg gas station, you gas up then you drive like 50 meters to a toll plaza style booth and then you pay.

I like stations in the eastern USA, especially on Pennsylvania and New Jersey Turnpikes. Also, the central rest stations between the lanes on Garden State Parkway are big, clean and well maintained.
Interesting, on New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway stations there are always assistants to fill the gas in your car, where on stations on Turnpikes in other states (i.e. Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, New York) the primary option is self-service. Why is that?

In New Jersey, self service gasoline is against the law - everything is full service. One year as part of my Labor Day weekend vacation when I took a ride north from Baltimore on Interstate 95 across the Delaware Memorial Bridge (Interstate 295) into New Jersey and the New Jersey Turnpike I stopped at a Shell station to refuel and - out of nowhere - an attendant comes out and refuels my rental car. I spoke to the attendant and asked him why he is refuelding my car and that's when I fond out that it was New Jersey law that self service gasoline is illegal.

To contrast, in Florida (where I live) self service gasoline is the standard. However, more and more counties in Florida - such as the principal Tampa/St. Petersburg metro area counties of Hillsborough and Pinellas - do require that full service be provided at self service prices to those motorists who are in possession of a handicapped parking placard. However, there is a catch: Full service cannot be provided when there is only one attendant on duty.

But I remember the days when we had full service: Not only the attendant pumped your gasoline, the attendant checked your oil and washed your windows for you, all while you wait. Sadly, those days are gone and everything is self service these days.

I'm sure 134 km (or 84 miles) is a long stretch of motorway or interstate highway without services such as fuel!

On Interstate 75 in southern Florida (the segment that is also called the Alligator Alley), there is a long segment from Exit 101 (County Road 951 in Naples) to Exit 49 (Snake Road in the indian reservation, home to a fuel station and restaurant/convenience store) - a distance of 52 miles, but shorter than the 84 mile stretch of A92 between Munich and Deggendorf - with no services, just a rest area a few miles east of Exit 84 (FL State Road 29). If I drive the full distance of Alligator Alley from Naples to Ft. Lauderdale or vice versa I always make sure that my vehicle is filled at the full tank mark before I pass the toll plaza.

In fact, just before you pass Exit 101 on southbound Interstate 75 in Naples (and the entrance to Alligator Alley) there are yellow warning signs warning you to check your fuel level due to the long stretch of highway ahead without fuel. Because of the great distances involved, you do not want to run out of fuel on Alligator Alley!
