The alps do get a lot colder than the UK hence the great snow and long season. This has an impact on your vehicle so here are some recommendations:Diesel - can freeze particularly overnight when temperatures drop regularly to below – 15 degrees centigrade. Therefore when you get to the alps make sure that you put some winter diesel in your fuel tank. Note supermarket diesel whilst cheaper is not winter diesel and will freeze. The local service staions will sell winter diesel (Gazole Hiver)Screenwash – again most screen wash in the UK is good down to -10 degrees centigrade be prepared for –20 degrees. Top up with some stronger stuff on the way across France.
Thanks so much for the fantastic lessons for mattie and martha this week. Both really enjoyed it and improved!
They have both said how much they enjoyed them and wished they'd had you before (instead of esf!!- large group and teacher they didn't understand)
Hope you have a good season and if we're lucky enough to be invited again to Chatel we shall be in touch.
