Ah, bloody weird fuzzy bunnies, if your going to do that then at least come up with your own bloody name for it. 🤔

I guess that's why I hate using the imperial system, it's too bloody complicated.

I'm paying about $2.11 to $2.30 per litre 98 RON.

Which on today's price is US$5.97/gallon

The little suzuki with the eco tires is doing 6.8 litres/100km or 35 miles per gallon

I drive a Toyota seqoia that has big nobby off road tires on it. The tires sound like 3 chainsaws having sex with 3 banjos as I drive it down the highway.

Not yet, just the standard all terrains, but I will give these Indian engines one thing, they are bloody good on fuel for a Ute.
I also never found muddies to be any worse on fuel in any significant way if you didn't put a bigger size on.
But putting a couple extra inches of tread on definitely hurts the fuel economy.
The noise on the other hand is a completely different story.

Yes I saw today it had jumped up again, global pressure or holiday surcharge?
That's the question.

This was my cost yesterday $6.50 per gallon and it was $0.20 cheaper than the other nearby gas stations. Diesel is $7.00 per gallon.

So in the UK motor vehicle fuel varies in price depending on:
- Petrol vs diesel
- For Petrol - the Ethanol content - generally 5% (E5) or 10% (E10) ethanol.
- Suppliers standard for "premium unleaded petrol" is E10 with up to 95-100 octane rating. Standard petrol is E5 and 95% octane. The octane rating varies by supplier. Motorway (aka freeway) petrol service stations typically charge more for the "captive" audience.

So the BBC reported recently that a family car with a typical 55-litre tank on average cost £100.27 to fill, and equivalent diesel cost £103.43. So the cost per litre at £1.82/litre of standard petrol (E5-95 Octane) and £1.88/litre of diesel. On motorway forecourts, the price for super-premium petrol is over £2.00/litre.

GBP=AUD 1.75 - x £1.82 /per litre equals A$3.19 standard petrol
GBP=AUD 1.75 - x £1.88 /per litre equals A$3.29 standard diesel
GBP=AUD 1.75 - x £2.00 /per litre equals A$3.50 super-premium petrol

How does that price to consumers break down:
45% cost to the supplier
29% UK Govt fuel duty
17% UK Govt VAT
07% Biofuel content cost
02% retailers profit
01% supply and delivery

So 46% is pure UK Conservative Government taxation (Conservative kinda means Australian Liberal/Nationa Party and also kind a means Republican)...

AUD $2.20 per litre for diesel in Brisbane today. So I guess I shouldn’t complain…..too much.
