Ultimate cheap fuel solution...

Postby Andy-S » Mon 01 Aug 2011 7:59 pm

Hi all,

Having recently left the UK to work in Dubai, I can highly recommend leaving that over taxed country in the rearview mirror and coming out here....

25 pence per litre for petrol, and the best bit is... you dont even have to leave the air conditioned luxury of the 7.6 litre V8 Pontiac firebrid.... coz the locals pump it for you...

WOOHOO....

Not that i'm trying to rub it in or anything, but just goes to show how much cheaper fuel is outside the UK...

ttfn

My brother in law has just complained that the cost to fill up his RR sport has gone from 15 quid to 17 quid. Life is hard out there

Similar fuel price when I was in Oman in 2009/2010... we are so overtaxed it's just an insult to every driver in the country.

Its not just the tax its the profiteering oil companies.
Same with the gas and electric.
Have you ever seen the price go down as quick as it goes up when the market prices change?
They arnt allowed to negotiate between them selves on prices but you can guarantee they have an unwritten agreement not to undercut each other and cut there shareholders profits.

There are no 'locals' working at petrol stations, I can assure you ;-)
Jinglies however....

Fuel may be expensive in the UK but
you can drink alcohol without being imprisoned (you can even lash out at the police and get off with a caution).
Our women are treated with some respect and you are innocent until proven guilty.

If the UK is really awful we are also free to leave like those 'lucky' folk enjoying themselves in the sun.

Don't just complain about it, if you really hate it - get off your heavy duty springs and go find somewhere better.

I'll get my coat now.
