Most of the Autoroutes have the fuel prices advertised just after the péage barriers for each station say at 20km, 50km & 75km etc etc. Usually just about 2km before each fuel station the next station prices are advertised also - but on the A10 (dir Bordeaux) & A11 (dir Nantes) this from memory was a bit scatty - sorry.

We too drive with the 12v cooler box full of food & drinks - very handy as last week heading up the Autoroute we were stuck in a 3 hour STATIONARY jam - in 30° heat with kids - it ain't fun.

I still stand by what I said in my last post - get off the autoroutes for fuel if you want to save a few bob (over a holiday that could be 50£+ maybe) and also you get to see towns and villages for a short time where the food is much better - even if it is a McD or Quickburger
