The truckstop is open 24/7 on the approach to Eastenders. You have to take
in your credit card before payment. I've used in many times, but remember to
lock everything up in case of any undesirable elements lurking in the small
hours of darkness.

If you are one petrol then the price is roughly the same, more on the motorway.
If you use diesel it's between 0.55 & 0.61p per litre. So depending on the size
of your tank you will probably save about 7GBP

Carry on to luxembourg.. diesel at about 40 pence per litre, first time i
had ever filled the tank up for less than 30 quid (cost me about 26 i
think.. usualy costs 50 quid.. 70 litre tank)

Van i'm converting now i'll be adding a second diesel tank specificaly for
when abroad (iveco motorhome.. easy to add another tank as they're side
mounted on the chassis rails), it'll never be filled in england, but once
abroad if i'm near luxebrourg i'll pop over and fill them both for about 50
quid.. beats the 100+ the uk would want.. and the diesel is better stuff
abroad, especialy in france.. good old normal sulphur fuel.. none of this
power robbing/pump knackering low sulphur crap we get here

I especialy loved filling the gas tank up in luxembourg, filled it at home
using autogas (was too late to fill at a heating gas supplier when i had
finished fitting it), cost me about 10 quid to fill, (30 litre tank.. using
autogas 37 pence per litre stuff)
Filled it again for 4 euro's in luxembourg, again autogas with road duty
paid on it, it's a vapour tank, for heating and cooking supply, makes you
realise what a monopoly calor has.

89 litre tank x 20pence = 17.80 our robbing treasury is missing out on
