LPG is still 55.7 at the local Morrison's BUT there is a vicious rumour  that they may be removing the pumps  :'(

The nearest one after that is a 10 mile round trip in the opposite direction to the one I normally travel in and the cheeky barsewards  charge 70 pence a litre  >:( >:(

This is worrying me to the extent that I have spent the last couple of days looking at 530d and E320 cdi estates  :(
Thats one of the drawbacks with LPG, the need to having a good selection near you for Price competition, still worth going out of your way to fill up rather than using the default Petrol though.

Is there not a MRH Garage near you TG (normally MRH BP or Esso), not allways the cheapest but they do the LPG up to 10p Accumulater Card which can make it worth while on multi visits.

Cheapest places for LPG in the UK is Birmingham, Bradford, Manchester and East London, its always been competitive in Brum due to the number of Gas Centres around the area, currently sub 49p.

 





Doesn't help with only been able to squeeze about 44 litres in there  :(

My last lpg car was converted back when the local filling station stopped selling lpg, a 15 mile trip to buy fuel each way didnt make sense.

I can buy diesel anywhere. including the corner shop if Im that low,  it comes in bottles and is labeled mazola.

Yes. KFC are world leaders in sourcing stringy tasteless chicken made from an assortment of old broilers. :-X

Given that in the last year I've done 20K in a 3.2 V6 I probably should think about the cost benefit analysis of such an investment.

That reminds me. I think I was supposed to be rescuing the images from some of the LPG guides. Must take a look.
