I have noticed that fuel prices vary a great deal from one petrol station to the next. We paid €1.185 today but also saw it at over €1.30 in some stations. I have just done a bit of research on the Internet and found a brilliant website which I thought I would share with you. If you select your fuel type and the region you are in it will list that days price for all the petrol stations in the region. I have just checked and there is a petrol station 1 mile from where we are parked (on the Aire at Casteljaloux) selling diesel at €1.165!! Guess where we are heading first thing tomorrow :rofl:. It also shows LPG prices too and gives you the GPS. co-ordinates as well as a map. Brilliant tool.:clap2:

Diesel, Gazoil, and Gazole are interchangeable in France - you'll see them all at some point.

A possible point of confusion is that GPL is LPG, but pumps marked 'PL' are for lorries only (Poids Lourds) because truckers have bigger nozzles than the rest of us.

.......but pumps marked 'PL' are for lorries only (Poids Lourds) because truckers have bigger nozzles than the rest of us.

I think a typical trucker's nozzle is nothing to write home about, but they have bigger orifices (or at least, much more capacity) because the pumps deliver gazole at a much faster rate and a small tank is likely to experience serious 'splash-back' and that, as I'm sure you know, can be very embarrassing on a public forecourt!

But if you are traveling from France to Germany via Luxembourg, Luxembourg was 1.06 euros per ltr this weekend for Gazoil! Very low tax rates there apparently

On our way back from Wales on Tuesday, coming up the M 5, dropped off at junction 2 to call at Asda for diesel, it's literally next to the junction roundabout, no further than driving through a typical services. £1.18 a litre, stopped at Stafford services up the road for a coffee and walk the dogs, £1.33. I'm sure someone must have compiled a list of petrol and food stops near the motorway ?

I note what you are saying about Asda. It's really close to the Junction but you would have to be crawling past on the elevated section to see it before you went past, otherwise you'd miss it.

Before we leave for anywhere exotic, (Like Brum and Stafford???)
we have a look at www.petrolprices.com.
It's free and gives a fighting chance of us not being ripped off

Cheapest non-supermarket French petrol station I've seen so far is Elf. Autoroute petrol can be up to 20 cents a litre more than at a supermarket.
