We had the same “fun” experience driving back towards Nantes from Nyort on the autoroute….
We did not see any open fuel station before getting on the autoroute, but KNEw there is an excellent LeClerc right by the autoroute at Nantes…..
Suddenly found the fuel warning light came on….. supposedly 35 km according to the handbook and we had 52 to go….
Slow down, remove right foot, glide whenever possible (no I do not mean in neutral) and literally glide into the very expensive autoroute fuel station by the peage…..
5 litres later, we paid and left - to Much Muttering Behind the Till about “mean Brits”,
THEN went on to LeClerc and filled up,
Never realised you could get that much in, I reckon someone else was being filled at the same time….
Sanity restored although muttering continued for the rest of the trip and some time after…. 😱
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Any comments above are only MY OPINION
and should be read as that.
