If you are heading southeast on Steens Hwy (78) down to US 95 you will likely run into at least one station. but it is *very* remote out there. If you are going straight south on 205 to 140, then the only things you are going to see after the RV park at Princeton is Fields and Denio Jct. I couldn't tell you whether either one is even open now. I have been going through Denio on my motorcycle most years for 20-ish years, and there have been a steady stream of folks trying to make a go of that place.
Just looked at their FB page, and a post from Jan 9 indicates that they have 24hr gas & diesel if you pay with a card. I would probably call ahead - or at least message them on FB to make sure that's true. https://www.facebook.com/DenioJunction/
Fields Station also has an FB page: https://www.facebook.com/thefieldsstation/
and they claim to have gas/diesel/propane. So there you go.
It's beautiful country, and this is probably a good time to go through. Any time other than winter, you would be stopping every 10 miles to scrape bugs off of your windshield so you could see. Whichever way you go you will pass on one side or the other of Malheur lake, which is a wildlife refuge for migratory birds. in the warmer seasons there is an absolute feast of flying insects for those birds to fuel up on!
