Usually about 500 meters before the gas station resided, there will be a traffic sign telling the road users that in next 500 meters there will be a gas station. So any body who need to fill it up can stop by there.
The petrol station in Bali can be found also near the toll road of Bali. If you take a toll road to go to Bali airport or to Nusa Dua or to Sanur at the end of toll road area there is a gas station on each side. So whether you fill up petrol before or after entering the toll road or that would not be a problem. Of course there is also a petrol station near Bali airport as well.

Many people sometime mix it with anything liquid except petrol, could be ordinary water, just to give them more advantage from the petrol they sell.
