Nice mpg that Alec!
I used Eurotunnel last month on a trip to Austria and have since decided I will avoid the Dover Calais ferry like the plague, Eurotunnel is far more civilised and worth every penny

Yeah I was pleased with the mpg, mostly using cruise control too on the Autoroute/Motorway.

Been using only Eurotunnel probably 5 times a year for the last 5 or so years, occasional delay but still a whole lot better than the ferry.

Is Calais still subject to industrial action etc., with auto route being obstructed for long periods.

Not that I've noticed and had no reports from our van drivers at work who make the trip on a regular basis.

Very visible strong police presence around the Calais area.

There were a lot of migrants around Dunquerke however.
