    FUEL PRICES across Europe ETC....

    I wonder if this thread/post could be made 'sticky' and available to update,for travellers in or going to different countries,as prices can determine what route or 'where' next to go,on your travels ?As most of the cost is fuel,if 'wildcamping',this can be worked out more accurately,also maybe let M/H know where LPG is sold at the pump ?
    I have a pull to travel accross Turkey ,also Morocco beckons,but have no idea of fuel prices ?

    Here in BULGARIA petrol AND diesel are approx. £1 litre,and LPG
    is half the price and available from the pump at every fuel station. :thumb:

    Fuel prices in Turkey are usually between £1.30-£1.50 per litre with LPG about 80-90ish pence per litre.
    And we think its expensive here!!!!:Doh:

    OK as a 'rough guide'.....but not much else!

    In July 09 the cheapest pump price I spotted was in the last place i'd ever have expected.....Salzburg, Austria.

    84 cents a litre! :Eek!:

    FUEL COSTS/Where ?

    Thanks guys,this is what i meant by personal and fact, generalising to me is no good,sometimes i've driven to stations and their not even there anymore,alone the price of fuel being different,also prices deviate from month to month or like the Austrian advice,could potentially save you a small fortune,filling up in say one place before going over the border etc,i think Luxemburg is alot cheaper too ?
    Perhaps ,even more detail could be added,as to where,on what route,better services etc,it all adds up to help for a cheaper ,more care free holiday.

    I don't know why Gibraltar is not mentioned in the AA fuel price data as I think it may be the cheapest place for diesel in Europe?
    Also the most unfriendly place in Europe for motorhomes :Angry: Apparently the only place on Gibraltar where motorhome parking is allowed is Morrisons Car Park for 3 hours.

    Luxembourg is much cheaper, so much so that the Auchan just inside France is the only one where they don't sell fuel - all the locals justpop over the invisible border.

    Luxemburg is much cheaper, so much so that the Auchan on the French side of the border is the only one that doesn't sell fuel at all. We couldn't find their service station, went back inside to ask, and the staff thought we were bonkers to have to ask,since everyone pops out of town - i.e. across the border - to fill up.
