If you select a 'full to full' car rental agreement you will need to hand your car back with a full tank.

There is a Shell service station on the outskirts of Mytilene, about 10 minutes drive from the airport. This is the nearest and most convenient place to fill up your tank if you're approaching the airport from the north.

Driving around Mytilene Airport

The roads on Lesbos are mostly quiet single carriageways. Traffic in Greece drives on the right-hand side of the road. This can take a bit of getting used to, so be extra alert: especially when turning onto a new road. Driving on the island is generally a pleasant experience, as you can reach most places within a couple of hours. Local drivers are polite, places are well sign-posted, and there are plenty of places to fuel up if you need to. The island has some unsurfaced roads, and if you want to explore them it's best to choose a four wheel drive car.
