Does anyone know good websites to get current details as to the fuel availability in France particularly Roscoff - Nantes - Bordeaux -Irun.
Most of the stuff I can find is dominated by riots in Paris and the rest is several days old.
I am due to travel this route shortly but need to refuel twice Roscoff to Irun.
To old to take chances.

Good evening Ray, you might have seen this site, it may help. https://www.thelocal.fr/tag/fuel+crisis
As a last contingency, a few drums of fuel in the tow car.
But whatever have a lovely winter.

By 2109 even electric vehicles will be obsolete and diesel will be viewed with astonishment as kids read their history book. :whistle:

If you do plan on carrying any fuel in containers make sure your ferry or Euroshuttle allow them to be carried. A late rejection could be a problem. It’s also illegal to carry more than a limited quantity in France too

In the 2016 fuel shortages the RAC website was regularly updated with status. Looking on the web I cannot see any mention of fuel shortages at present. My advice would be to arrive with a full tank. Carry any additional that you can, and top up more frequently than normal so you maintain a high fuel level until you are within range of your destination.

Fortunately I've heard on good authority that there is no problem in area South of Nantes my first night stop. A full tank here will get me to Spanish border so big sigh of relief.
As for carrying spare drums in the car, Brittany Ferry warn specifically that only 1 x 5litre is allowed, and there has been restriction in France on filling jerry cans.
