    I paid 127.9 for Diesel on Friday at Morrisons which is next to my work in Liverpool. I usually go to the shell garage by my house and I think that is around 128.9.

    1.30ish for diesel in plymouth.

    I got 9 litres of 71p a litre diesel in my shed from Andorra.
    I'd like to know why the government is charging us 1.30 per litre.

    why not use regular 95 Ron Unleaded then? it's a few pence cheaper, that'll get you an extra pint down the pub per tank

    Its not oil company's fault!!! The actual cost of petrol is about 42p a litre, rest is TAX!!! If you understand the process of extracting oil, cracking, processing and distribution, 42p is nothing for a litre of petrol. Then the government robs you blind!


    126.9 COST BREAK UP

    We not only paying for Fuel Duty which is 141% of the actual cost of petrol...YET we have to pay VAT at 20% on TOP of all that!!!

    LOL! Judging everyone's response with regards to facebook on another thread in this part of the forum, the above is a load of bowwox!

    My look on this is, you can moan until you are blue, but at the end of the day, we will just pay it no matter how much it costs! We need petrol/diesel in order to use our motorcars, the government has been robbing us for ages, not just on fuel, but on roadtax. Just look at the state of our roads. Those who have thought about it carefully have decided to downsize their mode of transport to save money, hence the increase in values of 'used' city sized cars.

    Until someone actually comes up with an actual plan to make a point to the government, I shall be filling up in the morning as usual, even if it's 1.50/litre!

    I'm all for doing something to show the government they can't keep doing this to the public but looking at how effective the last fuel protest was and the fact that protests don't seem to stop the government doing what they want.
    It all seems a bit futile really.

    Has any public protest stopped or changed the government's decision on any thing?

    The motorist will always be shafted up the arse.As discussed previously, most of the cost is tax.And thats a government issue.Doesnt matter whos in power.The British always bend over...sometimes i wish i was french!We have no political choice bar a civil revolution which wont happen.Id emigrate today if i could but i cant.So my arse is going to be well sore .

    One of the Lib Dem policies was to stabilise fuel prices by raising and lowering tax when the price of crude goes up or down...

    Looks like that one got lost in the coalition mire...

    running a car on oil is great.
    as long as they process it.
    If they just strain out all the lumpy bits and shove it in the car then its not so good.

    It needs to be filtered, mixed, bubbled dried and checked.
    Depending on what oil your using and how your mixing it.
    You also need to make sure there is not to much palm oil in the mix for the colder months. It tends to block your fuel system up. Opps!

    Also, the mixture can eat a way at your fuel seals and cause fuel leaks.
    This can be stopped by replacing the seals/O-rings or by changing the mixture.

    Another advantage is that bio-fuel will clean the fuel system and help remove the crap built up over time from the tank, fuel lines and injectors. This is why its recommended to change the fuel filters more of often for the first couple of fill ups. After long term use you can go back to normal fuel filter change.

    its 140.9 petrol and 143.1 for diesal in Shetland (yeah we have always paid a small amount extra for transport but this is really taking the piss whats happens at 2.00 a ltr? will it ever stop?
    considering we have one of the biggest oil terminals in europe its amazing! plus its a place where most people dont live in the towns with a sporadic bus service so driving is actually a nessesity.

    Petrol around where I live is 125.9 and 126.9 for 95ron.

    125.9 you have to do a few extra miles, but if your filling up then its worth it.

    As for the government, well they should take a long walk off a short cliff tbh but then that's only the petrol. What about the rest of it! If you wern't being ripped off by the banks and the housing fuel suppliers, petrol wouldn't seem to be quite so bad. But its still a bloody rip off.

    This is what I use, haven't filled mine up since the massive increase. Safe to say I'm not looking forward to it.

    It was only (Still a lot I know but seems a small amount these days) 82p when I past 5 years ago, it'll be double that before long the way these prices are going.
