Updated List, Updated Order, and Fuel Costs

As I continue to plan for the film I have been updating my destination list – the order of the list and so on…

I had to ad one more place to the list because I had a very long stretch of driving between Marseilles and Paris. I decided that even though I haven’t been there that the Cathedral at Autun could not be missed and made a very nice break in the trip.

Going through my old records I found that the website http://mappy.fr/ was good at estimating, time, mileage, and even estimate of petrol, fuel costs, and tolls!

On the bad side of things is that many places are closed on Monday or Tuesday so I needed to arrange accordingly.

The total distance is about 3289km or 2087 miles.

Now let’s do the math.

I am looking at leasing a 308 SW Premium turbo diesel 5 door automatic (cause I cant drive stick).

This car gets 7.13L/100 km or 14.02km/L.

For a total of 234.5 L of diesel

At 1.107Euro/L the total is 238.5 Euros

At 1 Euro = $1.289 the total is $308 for fuel!


My revised list – in order – looks like this:
* = Not on my original proposal list.

Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport
Gross Tour Du Roi in Compiegne
