    To get red diesel for the tractor and the John Dere grass cutter I used to take 25 litre plastic drums down to Double D in Poole who had a redundant tank with gas oil in it and they would fill them up for me. Unfortunately the tanks running out now.

    Hence the search for red diesel, bought some, how much for a 45 gallon drum delivered? ......................





















    £240 odd !

    Look at it this way !......

    If you are a fulltimer, you fancy a change of scenery and climate, you fill up, bite the bullet and arrive at your new destination ( Zahora....yippee !) then, it's your home once again without the added burdens of all the outgoings.....Result eh ?:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Bergman costs £13.60 to fill up.. that is 250 miles..

    Blackbird is not quite as good.. Costs £25.00 but that is a tad over 200 miles worth

    Sadly the bloody van only does 24 to the gallon :cry:
