    Anyone know? My local Shell garage hasn't had any for the last 2 weeks! When I asked the guy in there tonight he said that there is a "problem at the refinery". Anyone know more?

    havent got a shell garage round my area, nearest one is 20 miles away lol

    use tesco super £121.9 :faint:

    i reckon if there was a few of us we could rob a fuel tanker fast and furious style, hide it in a warehouse and have free fuel for a few weeks, who's in?

    the woman at my local shell said that apparently BP mixed the V power wrong for shell and had to make a fresh batch

    Same here with the price hike up. Although there is one Shell garage a couple of miles away that is 3p cheaper and always has been . . . wtf?

    Just a case of whether it is worth the petrol costs to get there for 3p a litre off!!

    I hope you'll be using it within a month or so, unleaded petrol actually goes off after about a month!

    As jardo said there seems to be plenty of V power here in basingstoke, although it's gone up in price by about 5p in the past 2 weeks.

    Haven`t been able to get V Power in Tyneside for 2 weeks.

    Nearest Tesco is 40 miles away (I think)
    Using BP Ultimate for now.

    How the **** can a multi-national run short on its flagship fuel? Idiots.

    Not sure if Im imagining things but the car feels a little bit more restrained when giving it the beans in RON 97 BP Ultimate.

    Cheers
