Average Price??

#1 Post by stubeedoo » Sun Sep 09, 2007 9:01 pm

Can anyone give me an idea of the current price per litre of our favourite fuel across La France, s'il vous plait? <BR>Wor Lass is muttering about the viability of a trip now the holiday car is cheaper to run. <BR>TIA <BR>Stuart.

well , due to a broken leg haven't been buying gpl lately , but similar to uk prices when last I looked ...67 to 76 cents <BR>am back out and about next week so will have a look then and post if you haven't had a reply <BR> <BR>2 tips though <BR> <BR>the 76 was on the autoroutes , avoid at all costs [ no pun intended] <BR>if you see a leclerc supermarket fill up , there won't be a lower price in the area [ pronounced le claire in case you have to ask ]

filled at local garage yesterday ..70 cents
so plus or minus 10% will be the range [from hypermarket to motorway]

French gas has a higher butane content than most, and will give you a noticeable increase in MPG.
If you're anywhere near the Belgian border while in France, nip over and fill up there.

would that that were true ; the same tanker fills the lpg tank at the filling station and the propane tanks around the houses ; driver tells me that it comes out of a tank marked propane at the depot

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply, but thanks for the input.
Now I need some info on tunnels, so I'm away to that thread.
