The last couple of years travelling down to Spain in November it was relatively calm and a pleasant trip, it was the trips back in the February/March that were shockers !!
How long would it take to drive from Calais to Northern Spain, then the fuel costs. Whilst we have the funds and can afford the ferry costs it's all about the convenience. A good nights sleep on the boat then with two of us driving we can be in Southern Spain (Estepona) in nine hoursBut from portsmouth its over 24 hours on the boat or 30?
Took us this year without tolls 12hrs and 90ltrs of diesel . £44 for the ferry so all together is was not that expensive .How long would it take to drive from Calais to Northern Spain, then the fuel costs.

We get 30 to the gallon its about 1200 km to the spanish boarder with no hills just watch for the photo cameras in the small villages.That was dunkirk to Barritze route is below.hpold thats cheap, how many miles to the gallon do you get? I'm not sure what mpg my truck will do probably 2 lol I will drive it like a nun, Although it dont like the hills, but then i was told the engine in mine was rated for a 12 ton truck so it should fly up them, but then i was also told about that the boost needle in the fuel pump gets stuck, apparently not a lot of people know about that problem, the only problem i've got is the bloody cab dont tilt grrr otherwise i'de soon sort that out and get me power back.
Yup, 70mph or a bit more but remember, that will be in a car and not the Motorhomemaddy you will get 20 ish . might be a bit less or if your lucky a bit more . the 130 less the 150 if your careful possibly 24 but real careful driving to get that.
bob gets about 19ish. but he is well loaded on the 130.
be interesting to know where hp entered spain and the milage .
when i did roscoff to spain i always zigged and zagged abit but 800-1000mls i used to do. that was entering spain at irun or into andorra . similar milage but again zigging and zagging . never done a straight run as have friends dotted about so go out of my way and call in .
12hrs seems like fast going to me . i say 3 days atleast.
bm must be travelling at about 70mph all the way.
much too fast.
Hi it is 1559 km to Madrid from dunkirk and just over a 100km to the Spanish boarder , then took the Pampalona ,Zaragoza and then the free A23 motorway to the costas. We only filled up twice but top up when the tank is half full as petrol station in the country are few and far between mainly topped up at Carrefour .We just bimble along at about 70-80 ks per hour not in a rush . You can take the motorway for a part and save an hr near pottiers and just before the spanish boarder and it is not much about , details below .Mine is the 130 be nice to get 20mpg. And the 3 days is a nice thought, I've had it with race driving, did too much when i was younger, mind if you put me in a ferrari that could change lol
hpold nice detailed root there 30mpg thats good too what speeds 70/80 mph? also is that the total cost of all the tolls roads?
