The run over to Elvington and back took a weeks normal petrol. Petrol was 74-76p as litre before the fuel rise/oil shortage, topped out at 82p a litre, is back down to 78-79 ish a litre. One of the robbing gits round our way had it at 90p a litre, for regular premium unleaded (95ron) Stopped looking at super when it went past 88p. -- The poster formerly known as Skodapilot.
