There are no toll roads in Sweden. IIRC the same applies for Denmark and
Norway with the exception of the main roads into Oslo itself. There they
charge. Don't know how much though.

There are no fees for crossing the border between Sweden and Norway.

Petrol, called bensin in swedish, costs about SEK 8.70 to 9.10 per
liter (SEK 9.10 are EUR 1).

That depends... There are ferries from several parts in Denmark to Oslo

You can drive from Kopenhagen to Oslo (either by using the Öresundsbron
- the bridge between Kopenhagen and Malmö - or the ferry between

On http://www.oeresundsbron.com/ you get all the prices for the bridge:
a car starts at EUR 31:-

An alternative might be to use Ryanair from (Frankfurt)-Hahn to Oslo and
avoiding to have to cross entire Germany, Denmark/Sweden...
