Was on my travels today near Poole.

Looking for Petrol £1.19 £1.21 then I spotted a Garage £1.16.

So I started to fill up & got a bit of a shock, the Super was £1.29!!
Why the difference>>:huh:

I notice in Waitrose, Tesco & Sainsburys its about 2-3 p more expensive.


OH & By the WAy>>>> There was a Black Foz on the M27 about 1 pm giving it stick & a Vectra XR trying to keep up.

Any of you lot ?????>>>>>>:huh:

Maybe because they don't sell much of it, so can't buy in bulk??? Was it an independant?

They want to get people in with the low advertised price on one product while having an above average price on other products. A lot of the stations around me here do the same, they may be a full 20c lower than the surrounding stations, but their premium will be a few c more than anyone. Luckily the local station has 5c discount per gallon of premium on tuesday/thursday.

Mark it was a Texaco.

Pretty funny really, new Sat Nav today, took me to this Garage I asked the Guy in the Garage if he could direct me to this Building Site?

Sorry I'm from Somalia, I nearly collapsed:icon_biggrin: I said know what you mean , I'm from Dundee!

He nodded in agreement, talk about hands across the sea>>:biggrin:

By the way North Downs, didn't think it was you.

Although he was moving rapidly, not as rapid as yours I suspect.:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

It was an older shape too.

Anyone on here???????

By the way the VXR struggled>>>>:icon_biggrin::icon_biggrin:

According the the MY00 brochure, all of the SF range should take 95RON, but when you open the petrol flap the little sticker says "SUPER UNLEADED ONLY".

Which is it????????!!!!

Nah didn't think you would have not realised it was me if it had been - I'm fairly recognisable what with the decals haha !
