    Did you notice the dates against each outlet, today,.................when the French do consumer stuff it's pretty good.

    Most expensive, as they are here, are Autoroutes services but still at around a £1 a litre. Noticeably a little more expensive near ports too.

    Mel, I've always thought that Belgium is slightly cheaper for diesel and a bit more expensive for petrol than France, does that still hold?

    No not anymore I cant say for petrol.
    But diesel over the last few months been about the same as France.
    last time I came to the Uk it was cheaper to fill up in France.
    at the moment its the lowest price we have seen since 2010.
    If this keeps up it wont be worth running on red:sneaky:(only joking)

    Diesel €1.11 Murcia,España. Could be 4 year low. Bit too far to fill up from France or Germany, but travellers in Spain might like to know this.
