    Sainsbury's Cobham is a fair run from Redhill !

    Sainsbury's Cobham does LPG! it annoyed me when BP stopped doing Lpg on the A3. But that's a hand fill location.. 56p a litre is cheap too

    No problem and certainly can afford to drive it, just the price variation

    Enjoy ;)
    Had LPG fitted to a 80k 3.9L years ago, I still develop a nervous twitch when the subject is mentioned.
    An erstwhile mate used to be effected in the same way following his decision to take the same path :(

    Just as a comparison Diesel in my bit of France is now €1.44 per L, given an exchange rate of €1.16 to £ you can work it out yourself, it's Sunday night. :D:D

    It's around £1.20 odd. :(:(

    One Around Burley Gate at 60ppl

    LPG is getting a resurgence if the "net" is to be believed.. ;)

    My V8 has had it on since 25k "2004" and is sweet at 125k having had a BRC system initally and an AC stag system now..

    Original motor.

    Its all screwed up at the moment as far as diesel prices are concerned. . its currently £1.30 at a garage by Heathrow but 1.33 by Watford. Cannot remember when it was like this before as Heathrow always carried a premium and I was always loather to pay for diesel around the area.

    I believe fuel has always been static at 55ppl but it's the tax that fuktuates. :rolleyes::D

    Interesting. I wonder where it gets the data feed from and whether petrol is also available?

    Does it have historic price by day of week? Wondering if some days are cheaper, maybe a Monday or Tuesday, assuming most people fill the tank Sunday night ready for work.

    It goes up and down like a prostitute's knickers. F*ck all to do with the real world. All down to what the market will bear and people speculating in the middle. Longer term trends seem to suffer from the exchange rate (although price goes up quick and comes down slow).

    Pound is seriously ****e at the moment. Pretty much a pound a Euro from cash machines in Spain. When I got married it was close to 1.5 Euros to the pound.

    That is more to do with cash machine operators profit margin than exchange rate.

    £/€ fluctuations are speculation about Brexit. The exchange rate is a darn site better at the moment then it has been, I'm getting €1.15725 to £1 on my pension, it was down to €1.06 a short while ago. Drawing cash with a card overseas is a mugs game.
