“There is no shortage,” says government spokesman Olivier Véran. But the truth is that a good number of service stations have a dry tank, almost everywhere in France. Diesel, SP95, SP98… More than one in ten stations would be deprived of all or part of its fuels in France. Those of TotalEnergies are especially affected. The blame lies with the success of the brand’s discount at pumps, combined with a stoppage at its refineries and fuel depots.
A map showing TotalEnergies stations where fuel remains
To avoid having to travel for free, there is an interactive map of TotalEnergies stations that still offer fuel.
To use this tool, simply mark the fuel that interests us and check its availability in the surroundings. Example in the Grenoble conurbation, this Thursday morning, no station of the TotalEnergies brands seemed to offer SP95, according to the map. But that’s how it was, a little further on the side of Charnècles, Villard-Bonnot or Vinay. Instead, it continued to be easier to find diesel with various offers in the agglomeration.
On the map, without applying any filter, it is also possible to click directly on the service station that interests us to check the availability of the different fuels, with an indicative price updated periodically.
