    Don't look it don't go without it so fill up.

    I find putting it on card helps, as you pay for it at the end of the month with loads of other things and havn't a clue what you spent on fuel, or anything else come to that. :Rofl1: :Rofl1:

    All the best Rick

    Downside of living in the stockbroker belt Bob. What you need is a local Asda it works wonders with the low area fuel price.:thumb:

    But I might do better with a VW Buttons!

    It is Sainsburys or Tesco's in this area... mind you Buttons I expect your VW with the hamster running around in side the fuel pump would do more miles than my 6.8 ltr V10 petrol engine:Blush:

    They are ALL putting up the prices ahead of the budget so they can take a penny off and shout look how good we are..

    Look at it this way Bob, it`s not so much £1.40 a litre, it`s just that you get less for your tenner hehehehe:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I was in Cheltenham last Friday - Sainsbury's prices - 127.9 for petrol and 130.9 for diesel. How come they can do it so much cheaper, no sign of any other competition nearby.

    they are crooks

    On Sunday night the local Shell garage on the A21 was 127.9p on Monday morning it was 130.9 and in the evening it had gone up again to 131.9 that is an increase of 4p per ltr in less than 24 hours... crooks.

    I was in a motorway service station last weekend and some idiot was berating the staff in the garage about the cost of fuel.

    His closing rant was "if you reduced the price you would get more passing trade"

    Err, M1 services, passing trade ......:Doh:

    I would hardly call then crooks making just 2 to 5p per liter .. if it was so lucrative why are so many closing ?
    Clearly they can't compete with the supermarkets (who sell at cost or less ) and make a profit.

    The same thing has happened to the independent high street retailers.. and we are all to blame..
    As it wasn't being supported our local filling station closed .. so we have a 26ml round trip to fill up.. :Sad:
