At the moment the price of Diesel at the supermarkets is,could some kind person advise how much diesel is in france currently, i expect it to be much cheaper than here but wanted to check to see as may take a few extra fuel cans with me
It IS worth filling up your vehicle tank in France ... but travelling with more than 5 litres of extra fuel in an "emergency can" isn't allowed.Just come back last week the diesel was 108E, ie about 91pence /lt . Don't believe bring back fuel is worth it especially if you get caught for an overloaded van.
1.11€ this morning! That's at our local supermarket.
And Gordon complains when the Tories said the Pound was in free fall!Hi,
Just after this thread started the £ against the € was at around 1.23€ = £1 it has now dropped to 1.17€ = £1 but it appears the price of Diesel in France is stiil around the 1.10+/-€ so to all of us British people the price of Diesel in France is going UP quiet steeply, keep it up Gordon you are doing a great job "I don't Think"
OK so taking this idea one stage further:I have looked at the world price of diesel and noticed that Venezuela sells diesel at 5p per litre.
According to the HMRC webpage you are entitled to receive items from overseas "gifts, excluding alcohol, tobacco, perfumes and toilet waters, with a value not exceeding £36"
Now if a group of people got together and bought each other £36's worth of diesel in Venezuela and there was a 'group' import of separate packets of £36's of diesel, then the gift was then made available to Motorhome fun users then your £36 would buy you 720 litres or over 185 gallons, per person.
Friday 9:30 dont be late..:thumb:OK so taking this idea one stage further:
1 gallon of water weighs in at about: 10lb and 1 ton equales 2240 lbs therefore we get 224 gallons to the ton. 224 gallons is just about 3 RV tankfuls.
We hire a 300,000 ton super-tanker and import 300,000 tons of diesel at Venezuelan prices which would give us approximately 67,200,000 gallons of diesel.
Each RV can take about 80 gallons so we need 840,000 RV'ers to buy a tankful each at £12 plus the odd bob or two for the hire of the tanker, crew, distillery, pirates fees and my commission for working out these difficult financial appraisals.
Yep, Shifttzzz - I like the idea - when can we start planning?
