    Definitely yes :)

    Edit: Maybe. I had overlooked the current value of the pound. An example today is that diesel is approx 1.16 E/litre in Morlaix. If you have not pre-purchased Euros at a good rate then the cost is about the same(ish).

    Much the same cost at the moment, though I always get better mpg in France. Probably just I'm more relaxed and easier on the throttle than our overcrowded and potholed roads. (some French roads are crowded and some have potholes, but not so common to have both on the same road)
