Maybe the fuel suppliers should take Sussex's advice from another thread and double prices. That would sort any supply shortage :lol:

If doubling fuel prices led to me doubling the amount of work I did, then bring it on.

how do you work that out fuel is a fifth of your turnover approx so doubling fuel cists would still leave you with 60 percent margin

Double the work (at low rate) means double the wear and tear on the car (and on you), its called the Theory of Diminishing Returns or........running hard whilst standing still

Morrisons down 2p to 176.9 but petrol is on average 15p a litre cheaper so I think there is little or no advantage to owning a diesel anymore
