Black Forest / German Alpine Road / Austria / Italy / Switzerland Road Trip - June 25th-July 2nd 2016

Recommended Posts

Whilst trying to think of something to do over easter, this topic popped up. Nothing like early planning!

I'll have a proper read. You keep mentioning there won't be a lot of stops for you diesel lot, but I imagine I'll be playing catch up a lot, ha.

 

EDIT: have you done a google maps for the whole route? What's the total mileage?

Lol. Last time we filled up at the beginning of each day. Used about half a tank each day.

Total mileage is ~3000 miles.

Hmm watching this closely. Plan to do something similar with the wife but not sure if she has broken up from School by the dates you are talking about. She's a teacher BTW, not a student :P

Next year i'll be doing Italy in the Summer Half Term as the little 'un wants to tag along :)

I think the pizza and pasta might be helping her decision.

It looks like your days are ~300 each? That'd be well over a tank! 3000miles is probably 12-13 tanks for the Z. Not cheap

I think I said before too, some days look nuts for driving. Far too long.

First and last days will be about 500 each, which leaves 2000 miles over 6 days, so yeah, about 300-ish miles per day.

Diesel is dirt cheap so, not too bad for us dirty diesel owners :)
