    I've just driven past a shell garage and it was 1.03 per litre for unleaded!!

    Someone has even had to draw in felt - tip a big '1' because there are no spare numbers on the price sign.

    As if things were not expensive enough in this country with petrol going up every other week.


    What a joke.:motz:

    I'll hold you to that!

    Good old Derv broke through the £1/L barrier a while ago in Lincolnshire.

    A whole two pounds?!?!?! And what will you spend this new found wealth on?

    Nah joking, couldnt you buy one of those home filter kits and use old cooking oil to power the Passat? Would save on disposal costs as well methink...

    Well that's the thing, a 5p saving per litre of fuel is around 2 quid per tank(£40-45 a tank), so we are currently paying around £2 extra for our tanks of fuel with the current prices compared to last month... not a lot you say, that's around £75 a year more with the current mileage I'm covering in the Passat only, and I have a few more cars on the drive also...

    The V-power unleaded just hit 1.05.9 up here...daylight f'in robbery IMO. I'm starting to think I shouldn't have opted for having my car mapped for V-power, but then again I guess I'd be getting butt-r@ped whatever fuel I put in it!
