Well. Brilliant write up, and pictures to boot. Glad that a great time was had by all.



Did any one inquire about the prices you were paying for fuel?

Not sure James but I think it was around the 1.75 Euro mark so quite a bit dearer than UK price which is about £1.34 now. @Hubaxe will no doubt be able to be more exact.

I’m paying an average of £1.43 up here.

1,75 are the cheapest prices now, and the area of Brittany/Normandy usually get cheaper prices (closer to refineries)
Depending the area, we are currently around 1,85 Euro/L for SP95, closer to 2 eur/L on motorways.

Yes now you mention the prices, I do think we were paying a bit more than 1.75 but we didn’t use the autoroutes.

Around my way the E10 rubbish fuel costs £1.50 a litre so virtually the same.

I think on the main autoroutes which I think we used a couple of time the fuel was circa €2 a litre. Most of the time we were paying between €1.74 to €1.84 a litre.


Hard luck… I paid £1.49 at Tesco’s on Sunday for their super unleaded. I won’t put that e10 shoite in my bike or car and the extra expense is easily offest by the increase in mpg I get using it.

I filled the tank with E10 at Ludlow Co op yesterday, £1.40/litre

I’ve posted this before, but for anyone who missed it, I’ve got a phone app called Petrol Prices. Just type in the town where you are and it lists all the local filling stations in order of their current prices. I got diesel in Carlisle Tesco last week for £1.41.9.


That’s what I used whilst sipping a latte in Ludlow!
