« on: April 03, 2012, 11:16:48 AM »

Lets all go to Dubai to fill up our tanks, petrol is a measly 5p per lt, and diesel a lowly 3p,..but what do we get here,..."greedy ******d, garages profiteering last week,..local Tesco, 1.44 per lt diesel, m/way services 1.60...distance apart 4 miles,...but Tesco ran out before them, and
I was down to a 20 mile range,so i had to bite the bullet,...but i,ll never go back thats for sure,

Sorry Wullie, but it looks like your figures are out. As of Oct last year the price went up to 2.30 DH per litre...Someone else can tell us how much that is in UK..... %%

1.66? That's over 7.50 per gallon in English....  {:-{ {:-{

In the UK, in round figures, 2/3 of the price of car fuel is tax. If there were no tax on it, it would be about 50p per litre. I assume that it costs about 10p per litre to ship it/store it/take profits from Dubai...?

 And a typical garage profit is about 5p per litre....
