* [http://www.mapsworldwide.com/sku_33423.htm Collins Road Atlas: Europe 200] (1 : 1 000 000) is nice and has most petrol stations, even though it is a bit large (A3).
* The ''Berlitz Europe'' atlas includes petrol stations and has a ratio of 1:800 000, though many important cities are in the crease of the book and are difficult to read (e.g., Paris, Berlin, etc.).
* A good map iI've found (it has petrol/service stations marked and it's really small and handy! just a little bit bigger than a lonely planet guide) is the 1:1.250.000 Atlante Stradale Europa edited by Istituto Geografico De Agostini (ISBN 88-511-0968-0), it's sold in italian book shops but can be found on amazon as well.
* For Western, Northern and Southern Europe: ''one specific edition'' of the Marco Polo car map of [[Europe]] is great, it doesn't contain too much useless stuff like indices or city maps, and shows petrol stations on highways! Unfortunately [[User:guaka|guaka]]<small><sup>[http://guaka.org site], [[User talk:guaka|wikitalk]]</sup></small> only found this one in [[Slovakia]]. This map could also be found in [[Germany]], [[Czech Republic]] and [[Poland]] - [[User:Tmoon|Tom]] has a copy of both Czech and Polish editions (both editions exactly the same but with different front cover), and he bought these in 2006. They are still the best hitchhiking maps he's seen - hopefully the more modern editions are still as good. The cost was around 10 euro.
* ''Philip's compact atlas Europe'' shows service stations in some countries, is pretty compact and was available for 7 euro at the New English Book Store in [[Amsterdam]], in June 2008.
* ''Falk Europa Transportatlas'' (2006, ISBN 9789028723115- [http://s21.postimg.org/etj7n8yqd/falktransport.jpg sample]), European countries at 1 : 800 000 in a an A4 ring binder features . Features service stations. Legend in all European languages and traffic glossary in Europe's main languages. Be advised the atlas weighs significantly more than average: 1,5 kg. You could save about 300 gr if you remove the NL pages Landendocumentatie.
