Sept 1st is the day for a 2p/ltr increase. At the moment in Poole we are paying about 106p/ltr which equates to £4.82/gal, another 2p/ltr makes it £4.90.30/gal so we are getting nearer to the £5/gal. In my case I get about 25-27/gal, thats keeping just above the lorry speed of 56mph (90Kmh) to improve consumption, so my costs are close to £20/100mile. Next week I start our trip to Spain, 1000+ mile, hopefully I will be paying less each way than £200 we pay in GB, at 90p/ltr in France about £185 each way. Our use of toll Autoroutes is very infrequent, starting at LeHavre we can get into Spain over the Pyrennes without paying tolls making use of free Autoroutes. Ron W.
