  • Euro 95 ( Sans Plomb 95 / SP95 / Eurosuper ) is hardly available anymore on the highway and has been replaced by E10. Outside the highways, Euro 95 is better available.

For cars and engines that can not run on E10, it is recommended refueling the premium fuel Super Sans Plomb 98 if Euro 95 is no longer available at the pump.

  • Superplus 98 lead-free ( Super Sans Plomb 98 / SP98 ) is readily available.

  • E85 ( E85 / Superéthanol-E85 ) is a biofuel mix of 15% petrol and 85% bio-ethanol that is exclusively intended for special flexifuel cars.
  • Note: E85 is not suitable for regular petrol cars. If you accidentally fill E85, do not drive any further and have the fuel removed to prevent damage.

France fuel prices – electricity

  • France currently has more than 25,000 bornes recharge, or charging points (source: eafo.eu) most of which are located in Paris and other major cities. (For comparison: The Netherlands has about 37,000 charging points according to eafo.eu).
  • The network of public charging points is constantly being expanded. In 2017 along the highways ( les autoroutes ) 200 fast chargers are placed (charging time 20 to 30 min.), So you can recharge your electric car every 80 kilometers. Nevertheless, traveling with an electric car through France still requires planning and preparation where you should not only look at available charging stations, but also into possible deviating types of plugs and charging passes in France. For example, look for charge cards on kiwhipass.fr/kiwhi-pass-for-our-foreign-users
  • For an up-to-date overview of the locations of charging points on chargemap.com, chargepoints.com, plugsurfing.com and openchargemap.org, or search for charging points via, for example, the app Chargemap (IOS and Android)

  • Most bank cards (with Maestrologo) or credit cards (Visa and Mastercard) are also accepted at the checkout.
  • At the natural gas stations of GNVERT can be paid with a credit card.

France fuel prices – tank vending machines

  • At permanently unmanned filling stations with automatic vending machines ( station service automatique, distributor automatique de carburant ) can generally be paid with a bank card (with Maestrologo) or a credit card (Visa and Mastercard) and a pin code.
  • Note: When paying with a bank card, a certain standard amount of € 100-150 is often first put on the account as a deposit (pre-authorization) to check whether the balance is sufficient for a full tank. Usually within 20 minutes the amount for which is refueled is depreciated and the remainder of the money released again, but sometimes it can also take a few days to two weeks before the reserved amount can be used again.
