Hello.

I've noticed some errors in the Swedish signs.

You write "Fordonsgas" on all signs to petrol stations in Sweden. Fordonsgas is not petrol, its natural gas, or biogas, and very very few petrol stations sell gas. The word you should use is "Bensinstation".

On several motorway signs, you use double arrows to indicate lanes. We don't use these signs here.

Also, on the 2+1 roads you change the speed from 90 to 110 when it goes to double lanes. In reality, most of these roads have a set speed of 100 on both double and single lane.

Bedsides this, excellent mod. Very beautiful and high quality.

They are not errors.
I am aware that Fordonsgas means liquid gas but most petrol stations are referred to simply by a petrol station mark. I have never seen "Bensinstation" in a white overlay in the 26+ times I have been in Sweden.
The double arrows are used as I've based the signs on pictures.

Not every single 2+1 road in Sweden has been converted to 90-100. Some of them are still 90-110. As in our mod, some roads are 90-100 and some are 90-110, have a look for yourself.

Thanks for the feedback though

Well, as a fellow Swede he's right. It should be "Bensinstation" or nothing at all, or maybe just the company name. "Fordonsgas" doesn't exist on signs in Sweden. And just looks weird. Otherwise, an excellent map-mod. Kudos.

In Denmark only a pictogram of a petrol pump is used. No text:

I've tried to search for signs with "Bensinstation" or "Fordongas" (which I think that it doesn't mean "petrol station", but rather "LPG"). I've found neither, only gas stations signed with a gas station symbol only with services.

https://maps.google.nl/?ll=58.479911,15 ... 31,,0,0.97
https://maps.google.nl/?ll=58.915906,17 ... 6,,1,-2.96
https://maps.google.nl/?ll=59.086224,17 ... .2,,1,5.68
https://maps.google.nl/?ll=59.240498,17 ... .6,,1,3.98

And the text on the sign is the name of the rest stop or the onsite service chain.

However, according to Google Translate "Bensinstation" is the correct translation. It translates "Fordongas" as "Vehicle gas" (whereas gas literally means a non-liquid material and not petrol).

That is a sign with "Fordonsgas" on it.

There are no signs (that i have ever seen) with "Bensinstation" on it, it's always this sign:

If that signs and the text "Fordonsgas" is present then that means it's a petrol station with LPG.

If it's a sign with only "Fordonsgas" on it then you can't get petrol there.

https://www.google.com/maps?q=bensinsta ... ation&z=19

Notice on the above link how there is a petrol station on the right and the LPG pumps are on the left.
No need to sign the petrol station as it's obviously a petrol station on the right.
This is the signage leading up to that location coming from north.

https://www.google.com/maps?q=bensinsta ... ation&z=19

And IIRC there are no petrol station signs in the area leading up to that location, once again. The petrol stations are obvious (The statoil on the left side in the last link)

Hope this clears up the confusion.

"Fordonsgas" and "Bensinstation" are same thing, but we uses most "Bensinstation". I haven't seen any sign yet with "Fordonsgas". i looked at this Picture and saw there are signs for it.
If it's a sign with only "Fordonsgas" on it then you can't get petrol there.

https://www.google.com/maps?q=bensinsta ... ation&z=19
But i Think there are for Biogas (nature gas) and not for feul/Diesel. if that we use "Bensinstation" on all signs to feul stations without this Biogas.
