It might be. I meant it more in the sence of where did I experience the best rest areas in my knowledge. It certainly may be a issue of new versus old motorway, thus old versus new rest area.

What I mind about german gas station is their lack on the motorway, and their distance. Many times it is necessarly to leave the motorway for few hundered meters or even kms, and that costs time and comfort.

The Autohof tends to be cheaper though. I usually fill up at an Autohof, not immediately along the motorway.

In Italy rest areas without gas stations are rather infrequent. To my knowledge there are 4 or 5 of them on A14, but only from Abruzzo southwards, and one on A24 just before Gran Sasso tunnel on the west side, built purposely to admire the wonderful view of the mighty mountain:

I can hardly believe that Dutch are worse than the Belgian ones...
You almost cry when you need to go to a reststop with our without gas station in Belgium

The one without gas stations are the worst...They are never ever cleaned!

The bear ran away from her cubs which were "mercifully" put to sleep days later because the mother bear didn't return, so they were going to starve.

i don't understand them. 3 weeks ago i was carrying 2 birches (each about 3,5 mt long) in my Punto, and i could place them (ok, i had opened trunk). this tree is almost half of that lenght, i don't understand why didn't they place it into car.

BTW, when I saw the AR oval I thought it was from Argentina, but then remembered that they use RA. I like to see some unnoficial codes. There are lots of those here. From those of the list I saw CAT and GZ, but other ovals and eurobands that aren't listed there and I saw includes ARA, PIR and SVM.

Last winter a policemen stopped me and my father because the car plate was dirty. But he didn't understand that because it was snowing a little and they were trowing sand & stuff on the road the car is so dirty after 5 km that you don't recognize it. Clean the roads first! But I have to admit that he should clean his plates because now there isn't so much dirt on the roads like in the winter si he can have clean plates.

AR usually stands for Arad county, Romania. AR code is used on all the licence plates issued in my county. That oval was slightly different, because bellow it it's written Ardeal (a historic region in western part of Romania), but it also had the Hungarian flag (this region used to belong to Hungary before 1918, and there are still many hungarians that live here).

Speaking of ovals, which code would you like more for Slovenia: SLO (existing) or SI (post code, Internet)?
