Hwy 80 from Reno to Salt Lake City - gas stations?

I recall driving from Reno to Salt Lake City a while ago and a stretch without gas stations. Any tips on where to fill up along the way? Any other road trip suggestions?

Thank you.

Winnemucca

Elks

Wendover

All along 80 about 2 hrs apart.

There are plenty of gas stations along I80 in Nevada, perhaps you are thinking of I70 in Utah where there is a 100 mile section without gas between Salina and Green River?

We drive that route on I-80 four or five times a year. It's no issue at all with fuel. I don't think there' any long stretch at all without fuel. Dan P mentioned the big towns, but there are plenty of other smaller towns and some tiny ones with gas stations. As killer_bob noted, I-70 definitely has a significantly long stretch with no services. But not I-80.

Have fun.

We also drive that stretch of I-80 a few times a year, it's a major trucking route, so gas stations are plentiful. Use GasBuddy.com to find the best prices in various towns.

I think Dan meant Elko not Elks.
