Are the tankers still present, or are they back in the US by now? Normally they stay 2 weeks if I'm right, but I can't find a trace of them going home. Also SG Maastricht doesn't show a departure yet.

Ok, thanks! I will be in the area tonight, so I might give it a try.
From the Dutch side of the border, before anyone asks!
