Diesel was just €1.11 and LPG as cheap as 0.53 for a litre (£1.34 and 0.87 at home). However, we had to use two garages to do this.
The first one (for diesel) was a German station and we crossed the road to refill with gas at a French LPG station. Neither spoke the others language. Bemused and a little tongue-tied we crossed Luxembourg and returned to France and the gorgeous Alsace region.
Smiling Madame Meyer and her ‘vieux chien’ black Labrador met us with warmth and we enjoyed tasting the house Cremant.
Finishing the last of the Han saucisse with rice and garlic croutons it was a joyful return to the region we originally celebrated a big birthday in, some years ago.
