Most often the Marsh Harbor Marina on the other side of the main harbor from town has the best price, - the place with the yellow and white awnings to the port as you enter the harbor.

In Marsh Harbour itself, I've usually pulled up to the Moorings/Conch Inn fuel dock. Very easy to access fuel docks there. Good opportunity to top off the water tanks as well.

Harborview Marina in MH always has the best service, security and diesel price. It is by far the best run marina in Marsh Harbour. Here is a website that provides fuel and marina pricing for all the Bahamas.

Harbor view marina is also the easiest to pull into - fuel is at the head of the t-dock. I think all the marinas except mangoes sell diesel and gas.

That's correct but now around $5.00. Fuel prices have gone down. At GT this summer I paid $5.31 for diesel. Its gone down almost everywhere except some of the real outlying islands.

Yep and I bet he negotiated on the price. Troy will do that for those kind of quantities.
