Hi. We arrive at Boulogne next Thursday morning, probably quite low on fuel, not sure if we could make it to the Auchan out by the motorway.
I haven't seen it but I am sure I read somewhere that there is a L'Eclerc at Boulogne, anyone any suggestions? Don't say "fill up in England" as I object to paying all that tax.
Cheers Sid

Hi Mike. Just realised "L'Eclerc" is in the directions to the aire at Le Portel, I am not sure how far the aire is from the port.

I would spend £5.00 on fuel in Dover which would more than get me to the Auchan on the N24 and give me peace of mind.

Sid,
We find that the supermarket at this location is [cheaper] . .
Lat 50.700241 / Long 1.608564
This is on Boulevard Industrial - from the main A16 from Calais, then N416, over the bridge and the entrance is just on your left.
[If you have 'Flash Earth' you can zoom right in to the petrol Stn in the supermarket carpark

Not sure about the issue with tax,rather it stay in our country than in France :wink:

We were there at Easter & to be honest fuel seemed to be about the same as here,infact in some places it was dearer.
I think thats to do with £/euro and the French removing subsides from their diesel.

I wondered who would pick up on the tax thing rather than where to get fuel in Boulogne. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Grouch. In my original post I was looking for somewhere nearer than Auchan.

Cheers Sid.

If you're on fumes at Dover,buy gallon and waste 10p over the saving in France.If not on fumes then you'll get to Auchan 10mins away.All I add further is what a question to ask. 8O 8O :roll: :roll:

Gemmy. Nothing wrong with the question, I want to fill up in Boulogne and head South without going out to Auchan which is more than 10mins.
Cheers Sid
