Does anyone have experience going to the native gas stations just off the 401 Exit 556 near Belleville. All I know is that stations on the Reserve are open to the general public but I have not heard of anyone actually using one of these stations. Advice?

AFAIK, unless you have a government issued "indigenous person" id, you pay the going area price for whatever you buy. Only the aboriginals get the cheaper price/rate.
That may have changed, but that's how it worked a few years ago. Used to live and drive near the Brantford 6 Nations area when we lived nearer to it, and pulled in once, only to find that we didn't qualify for the much lower price displayed on their price signage.
Maybe some of the on reserve stations (Mohawks?) don't care any more, and sell it to everyone now?
Got a Costco card? There must be a few along your route, and they're probably the cheapest, just off the 401.

Official government blah blah

Same situation here. I fuel up on the reserve (if I can get to the pump it is very busy) for convenience but price is the same as in town.

We often pull off at exit 566, Marysville, drive south a few kms and fill up at Speedway . Usually save 8 cents a litre or so. No issues. Everyone gets the cheaper price. No ID card needed.
