    Filled up from almost zero today, and its the first time i've ever filled up to the rim and paid sub-fifty pounds!! I remember a few months back filling up for £70 on super unleaded... when it was 1.26p per litre! now its 98.9! amazing!

    Hooooraaaayyy for petrol prices! :bannana: :bannana: :bannana:

    yes its good to see it below £ but its still expensive
    still lets compare mans 2 essentials
    petrol/diesel £4.50 a gallon
    beer £20 a gallon
    how can this be, surely fuel is more difficult to produce

    I'm so looking forward to filling up my SL500 after I pick it up on Friday, then driving it the 120 miles home. My hooks have never been on such tenter.

    Nice, I was surprised to fill up the W202 yesterday for £49.50 that was at 96.9p. I'm sure I have hit over £65 before when filling her.

    It's a bloody disgrace....but the British people still didn't bother their ****s when fuel was right upto £1.36.9 for diesel...
    i wish an organisation would try and encourage people to boycot a garage per month to make them keep costs down.

    As crockers says........:)

    higher petrol price = lower value for my v8

    does that mean that lower petrol price = higher value again for my v8?

    don't think so or does that have to do with the credit crunch!
