    arriving at dunkirk on a Sunday morning arround 11am, I could do with filling up with fuel, DFDS shows a Auchan hypermarket near the ferry terminal, does it have good access? I'll be traving in convoy with a tugger with a large caravan? or is there a better place? we will be heading towards Calais aong the A16 and onwards

    The Auchen at Dunkirk does indeed have good access. A large car park but nowhere near as big as Calaise Auchen. From what I remember, there is ample room to fill up a Motorhome at the fuel stop.

    Don't forget that as it's a Sunday the supermarket will probably be shut (The Auchan in Calais is) so you will have to use the 24hr pumps with a credit card

    The tom tom lat long is N50'56.617 E001'48.580.

    Your Tom tom might take you the shortest was which would be passing through a shopping street on the edge of the town, this is OK but I prefer to ignore the turning of the motorway and take the second which is a more convenient road.
