Hmmm, I do hear that cherryade works very well at a much lower cost.

Yesterday - Asda and Sainsburys on the Greenwich Peninsular 91.9.

The highest I saw was 95.9 in the garage nearly opposite the Maritime Museum. I think they charge more because of the nice view of the museum and the park.

Red diesel, Bahn-Jeaux? Bought in bulk for 23p or so a litre. Available from some forecourts at about 60p.
Works really well! (Allegedly). If, of course, your conscience will allow you to defraud our nice government out of some much-needed cash.

I have very high moral standards i'll have you know.
They rank right up there with our beloved leader and chancellor.
I would never dream of robbing people of pensions, denying them health care because it is too costly, robbing people of their hard earned pennies through the back door...........???????

Where did you say I could get it from?

Interesting to note the differences here. I only look at the cost of diesel due to work--and the variation until last week was quite marked. In sunny Manchester, it was anywhere from 95-98p / lt. Yet in a god forsaken rathole like Barrow in Furness--it was cheaper by up to 4 / 5p. About the only good thing about the dump actually--and it's still a couple of pence cheaper today as well. Not seen any M'way services below the £1+ level for some time. Seems to have come to a albeit temporary halt around the 97p mark---am off to Aberdeen at the w/end for two days, but the van I will be driving is an LPG / Petrol variant--which really does keep the cost down--the only problem is the sources of LPG that are available on a regular basis--and how long the price can be kept down.

I think prices are peaking and this is a top of market blow off. Prices will ease unless we have a major geopolitical catastrophe choking supply.

Cool it guys

Take a gentle drive down here to Audi Sarabia. Fill up at SR0.90 a litre (15p) or, if you have a nice diesel, you can fill for SR 0.35 (6p a litre)

NOW, ask yourself - allowing for transport costs of the fuel to your local gas station - if Tony & Co are ripping you off? Of course not

I couldn't believe the man's "face" a couple of years ago, when he said the price of petrol was "down to the greedy Arabs" - how about "the greedy blood-sucking government" that YOU put back into power last year?? [IMG] yuck upchuck[/IMG]
