Tried to search for this piece of information, but without much success...
My question is: why such a huge difference in fuel price (petrol in my case) on motorway and non-motorway service stations in Austria? It was up to 30 cents when I went for ski holiday just before Xmas. Is it some extra tax we have to pay?

First of all: where did you go skiing? 2: there's a huge difference in most countries...

I warmly recommend to take an exit and drive to a bigger village (or a city).
It costs you a few minutes, but it saves many euros. (And you will see some nice places, especially in Austria and southern Europe )

No extra tax. Standard rip-off!

Your neck of the woods. Mostly Mayrhofen (where I was based), but also tried the galcier and Gerlos.

Really no extra taxes? I find it bizarre. In most of Europe motorway mark-up is 5-10% and I don't bother with detours. But here it was 25%. 1.20 in the Zillertal and 1.50 on the Inntal autobahn. How's that possible they don't go out of business with such extortionate prices?

They adjust prices dynamically. Over peak tourist season, many drivers won't bother going out of the highway in search of lower prices. Yet, ¢ 30 is a lot.

If that is where you were based I might even know you.
Anyway, I was in Munich city today, and decided to fill my van there instead of Austria. Austria always used to be cheaper with fuel, but in Munich today I paid 1.11€ per litre instead of 1.13 here for diesel...

Finally! I see that the bypass of Drasenhofen will be built too, but only as 1x2 until the Czechs sort out the road on their side. But still, this should save a good 15-20 minutes. Now - Vienna - I'm begging you, what about a 100km/h limit at night?

Here's my opinion about the 100 km/h limit in Tyrol:

For me personally not a lot changed. I always drove via S16/A12 from Vorarlberg to Innsbruck and vice versa. There have always been speed limits on the Arlberg and around Imst. So that pretty much stayed the same. Then there's a large stretch without a 100km/h limit. Around Innsbruck it also used to be 100 km/h in the past. That actually makes sense there with all the exits and the Brenner Autobahn interchange.

In the mornings I often drive between Hall and Innsbruck. Sometimes you have an 80 km/h limit there, which is actually a good thing, because the road is full of trucks and with all the morning traffic, it would otherwise just be a mess.

I drove twice to Wörgl lately and I surprisingly I wasn't much slower than I used to be. I guess it's mostly because you can just constantly drive 100km/h, as traffic is very smooth.

Sometimes it's annoying that you can't pass someone in front of you, but that's pretty much the only annoyance.

Eastern Linz bypass

a lot of information in german:

now there are 4 variants left officially (red ones), the rightest possibilty is not realistic, geological difficult and not really cheaper to the longer tunnel solution
The route analysis was published today: https://www.land-oberoesterreich.gv....esl_9.2.15.pdf (map on page 11). It's the western route from Treffling to Ebelsberg. The transit traffic is only 7,000 vehicles per day, it's still the same prediction like before (page 4).

A news article from September 2012 said, this route will be used by 25,000 vehicles/day.

^ Why do European countries use meters on road signs if it's more than 1 km? I see signs displaying "1500 m" rather than 1.5 km. If it's less than 1 km, then for sure use meters, such as 800 m.
