I suppose you're going from Graz to Zagreb. In this case you don't need to leave the Graz-Zagreb road, it's directly by it at Petrol, open 24/7 and costs 0.698 €/l. If you're going from Graz to Ljubljana, use the same station, just go off the H2 expressway for Zagreb and later join the A1 motorway for Ljubljana. Beside the one Maciej showed us, there's also one by the Graz-Ljubljana road, but not exactly by it, so it's harder to reach.

What kind of limitations are you having in mind?

New Slovenia road toll irks neighbours

LJUBLJANA, July 9 (Reuters) - Slovenia's new motorway toll system has angered its neighbours and tourists driving from Western Europe en route to the Adriatic coast.

From July 1, drivers in Slovenia must buy 6-month vignettes for 35 euros or annual tickets for 55 euros, or risk a fine of up to 800 euros.

The move irked neighbour Croatia, whose economy largely depends on revenues from summer tourism, so much that its tourism minister published on the Internet a list of alternative routes one can use to drive through Slovenia without paying the toll.

Croatian Foreign Minister Gordan Jandrokovic urged Slovenia this week to introduce cheaper, shorter-term tickets.

"Our plea to our Slovenian colleagues is that, if it is at all possible, they introduce shorter period tickets," Jandrokovic told reporters at Brdo, Slovenia, after meeting his Slovenian counterpart Dimitrij Rupel.

"It would be useful for millions of tourists... millions of travellers," he added.

Austrian Foreign Minister Ursula Plassnik has also asked Ljubljana to introduce shorter-term tickets, but to no avail.

Unlike foreigners, most Slovenes welcomed the new system, which considerably reduces their tariffs and comes just before the parliamentary election in September, at a time when living costs reached a six-year high.

"The new system is great. Now, I will spend about as much in the whole year as I spent each month so far," said Jana Zadnikar, a 40-year old florist, who lives 20 miles west of Ljubljana and drives to work in the capital every day.

Annual tickets (for 55 euros) aren't yet available, and if you aren't rude or sth, the fine is 300 euros, but if you pay in 8 days, it's just 150 euros.

Thank you very much, this one will be perfect! 450 km from the last Czech station, and stil 50 km before the end of my range, and on the way back it is the same... great.

There's only one thing I'm not happy with my LPG: the range is only 500 km while using petrol I can do 1100 km... but it is 1600 km combined!!

Remember also three "emergency stations" in Austria (gas is very expensive there):

A10 between exits 129 and 113,
A9 on km 164,
A2 between exits 100 and 111.

Wow, this is the first Croatian map, where you don't steal our territory (I'm having in mind the tripoint with Hungary).

I can't imagine being prohibited to use tunnels, but yeah, you mustn't go to garage, I don't know, if all of them.

Dear maps.google!

When will the Slovene and Croatian route planning embargo be brought to an end?

Hoping for the fast measures:

^ What routes are you talking about? If you enter Belgrade to Trieste, for example, it goes all around Croatia and Slovenia, through Hungary and Austria (and even Romania ).
