    Cheapest diesel has been around here for years.

    Morrisons, eastfield, diesel.... 99.7p unleaded 99.9p

    Nice to see the price on the pump lag behind the quantity as you dispense.

    We are currently on two weeks R&R in La Palma, one of the small Canary Islands. Walked past a filling station today and diesel was 79.9 cents/litre (about 60 pence).
    Pity we can't fetch any home!!

    I used to work part time after school and work at a local Esso garage -regular was 4/6 per gallon ,which is in old money 4shillings and 6pence. Super was 4/10 and supreme was 4/11.5 four and elevenandahalfpenney( eleven and a half pence)
    I remember a guy in a jag used to come in every Friday and have 4 gallons of supreme(5*)-keep the change son he used to say as he held out a £1 note. A tuppence tip( 2 pennys)-on a petrol station-wow-I earned 2/6 an hour.

    the good old days:LOL:

    (y)I filled up yesterday at 89cents a litre with 4 cents off with a countdown voucher,:)
    and with the exchange rate of $2.20 New Zealand dollars to the pound it makes for a very cheap holiday while we are here;)
    but we have to head back in April:(

    Must have been about the same time as I worked (part time) in an Esso station. Our Esso Golden was 4/11 per gallon and I seem to remember the price label on the pumps said "including 3/9 tax" (For the younger people on here : 4/11 = about 24.5 pence; 3/9 = about 19 pence.)

    that's because the tax & vat are at a lower rate in the Canaries.
