    plus, when you prove you're spending too much money, they "invite" you to the v-power club.

    I filled up at Burnside Shell which was £1.01.9 a litre

    Pipeline card! thats a joke, they sent me a mail the other day about the London Oliympics logo. Who gives a toss, just get us the discounted card! Only been waiting for about 2 years.

    My dad's mate went to a mechanics conference (or something like that) recently, the guy talking said we'd run out of oil in about 10 years time and they're estimating that by then fuel prices will be at about 50 pounds per gallon. Guess we've all gotta get fast cars out of our systems now before the prices soar even higher. Let's all buy skylines! :jump:
    At worst I guess people could still grow vegetable oil if you don't mind oil burners ;)

    £1.03p round my way, was £0.94p about 3 months ago, prices have shot up very quickly.

    Put £50 in the S3 a few weeks ago and it didn't even fill it :wtf:

    Remember when i started driving in 1997 and it was £0.59p for standard unleaded
