    Hi all you flying south, :Laughing: the diesel was cheaper in France at Le Boulou than in Spain.

    At Le Boulou Leclerc it was € 1.32 and in Spain it was € 1.56 :Doh: Lucky we had half a tank and it was about the same price until we filled up at Villa Nova Cepsa € 1.35 and here in Vinaros it is €1.26 :thumb:

    Have a safe trip. Bob and Jane.

    If going the Western route, fill up before Bordeaux !!
    Plenty of stations on the N10, I found the truckstops to be the cheapest. €1.32.
    Once you hit Bordeaux and the run down to the spanish border the prices do hike up to the €1.50 mark until you get further south where it goes back down to the €1.36 mark..
    Came back from Benidorm on Sunday this week in car...

    As Bobandjayne have said, Spain is now getting dearer than France for fuel. :Sad:

    Hi Phil, yes all sorted, It was worth the diversion to Germany and pick up the new control panel, along with the highly inflated price on it.:Doh:

    Now in Spain relaxing and recharging our batteries.:Wink: :Rofl1: Bob.

    I think you looked at the "Super Unleaded" price which is about 1.55 even Shell V-Power Diesel is "only" 1.425, ordinary hooch about 1.35 so very similar to French supermarket prices . I live close to the border so its a constant check to see which is the better option
