Somewhere about 50 secs into this video there's a shot of the fuel pump. Looks like Gasole and Essence to me, but I 've replayed it so many times trying to be certain that my eyes have gone blurry.

The F word

I am sure you have been through YBW with a fine-toothed comb, and this is four years old info, but:

"In May Le Havre's pumps had broken down. Honfleur does not supply fuel. Fortunately we had enough to get to Rouen which is the first fuelling point up the river. Euros 1.40/litre in May.

Next stop is PK121 at Port de l'ilon. Euoros 1.36/litre.

Travelling at slow speed we then had enough to get to Paris and back to the Rouen stop. Incidentally Rouen is not open on a Sunday.

Remember it is 223 miles from Honfleur to Paris. Calculate your usage carefully and follow the Navicarte. Have fun it is a great trip. Don't miss out on Monet's house & garden at Vernon/Giverny."

Try this site:

http://www.port-ilon.fr/index.php?page=port

It confirms both diesel and petrol

(OK: I'm several minutes slower than you and mines in French .....)

Le Havre sells 95 and 98 octane petrol 24hrs a day; I phoned the marina to confirm this last week. I think we must make plans for road-side fill ups as there's no guarentee that the Port d'Ilon will be open or able to supply 1,000 litres of petrol. I'll be taking 4x25 litre cans and a trolley. Any road-side refuelling will take ages; we must take this into account.

GD broached the idea of being able to play shorebased support crew last night...... Couple of those 100 litre tanks in the back of the car and a siphon pump could sort out the problem quite easily.....

Blimey, that's very generous of him. The easiest thing to do would be to meet somewhere en route and take our jerry cans to the nearest garage for us. That way, no one would have to buy any big tanks or mess around sucking petrol.

It sure isn't a definite but he did mention the possibility of it. We would of course be attending but apparently there is something called GCSEs only a couple of weeks after it. It is only 4 hours to Paris from Dinard so we could potentially meet anywhere/do anything. We'd only really have to meet once wouldn't we. If the three of us came we GD and myself could hitch a lift while GM did went on ahead and spent the afternoon in Paris as we approached? Then we could organise fuel as necessary. Just an idea though, of course
