    do I need a SHAPE ID to access the US installations in Belgium? I'd like to use a few of them as refueling points... :o

    You can access the US installations (SHAPE you'd have apply for) but you can't buy fuel on post. All is not lost though...if you head north and don't drive through luxembourg and come through on the A4 through Aachen you can buy fuel at the last Esso there and if you have Netherlands / Germany fuel coupons (Super Plus) you can buy fuel at Esso's in Netherlands.

    Hope this helps.

    Would the A4 be the best route to get to Brussels?

    Send a note to SeaMack (he's online) and see if he can pick up a few hundred liters for you.

    Nah, not worth the trouble. I'm only going to Brussels, then heading back to Stuttgart. I'll just buy the fuel coupons and fill up at the Esso on the border.

    Yeah....then that's your best bet to fill up in Aachen.

    Who are you and why are you coming to my country:mamoru:. The fastest way to get to Brussles is to hit the E42 then hit the E40. The 62 a k-town will run you smack into the 42. If your just going to Brussles you should go no where near SHAPE.

    Edit: If you do happen to find SHAPE let me know, I'll let you fill up on my gas card for a small fee
