Eurotunnel Fuel Calais

8 posts in this topic

Posted

Has anyone stopped at the Elf petrol station on the exit from Eurotunnel in Calais? We have always got a fleeting glance at the prices which have seemed OK but never remebered to get in a position to call in! Is it worth filling up there or better to wait until Les Deux Caps on the Boulogne autoroute?

I have filled up at the first fuel station you come to after leaving the Shuttle in France. Entrance and exit onto the same road before you exit the Tunnel complex. Seems better value than the autoroute but not as good as supermarkets.

Here's the map. The green route is the exit from the complex to the A16. It crosses the Boulevard de Europa on a flyover.

Please be aware of the bio diesel fuel problems -- with the turbo charger etc

-- as highlighted in another thread.

France uses mainly bio-diesel fuels now.

Lill,

On leaving the tunnel go straight on to A16 direction Boulogne. Leave at sortie/exit 41 (not far) and follow signs to Coquelles commercial center about 2Kms. As you approach commercial center which you will see on your left (Auchan, Sainsburys & many others) at roundabout look straight ahead and slightly to your right you will see Auchan fuel station. It's large and caravan friendly with cashier takes UK credit cards. I use it on my way out to Spain and brim the tank on my home to UK also handy for a bit of shopping.
