Hmmmm could be being thick here (has been known) but if it was previously 134.9 (last I filled up 2 weeks ago) and is now 132.7, does that make us worse off if we've lost .2 of a litre but are only saving 2p?

A few weeks ago it was 140.7 a lit so its moved down 8p a lit,if i did enough mileage that would be a good idea Ben but a tank full lasts a month so it wouldn't be worth venturing out of grimsby for it and here asda are always the best price.

Fair comment Mike. Around our way there is loads of choice in terms of filling stations. Also we have 2 cars, one petrol the other diesel. I also work the other site of the city from where we live and prices are often different the other side of the city. All in all it's hard to keep track of what is a good price for what we need, when we need it. It is for his reason I find the petrol prices site really useful.

Always wondered about that, can someone out in the sticks who uses LPG as heating gas ligitimately get a lance fitted for piping into a car? I mean ligitimately as in getting a Gas Safe engineer who is paperd up to fit one of these. Knowing a bit about how Gas Safe is item specific I always presumed anyone papered up to fit such a lance was probably in the sole employ of an LPG or petrol factor.
Not the legitamate bit about having to cough to HM Revenue and Customs for tax on heating gas used as motor fuel.

If it was possible I think you could end up with people in mains gas areas who ended up going with LPG as there car savings outweighed their increased expense on home heating.
Just tried to look up the cost of bulk LPG can't get a figure per Kg one site quotes 48.99p/litre. Autogas is working out at from 65p/litre from Lister gasses 1Kg = 1.98Litres That means that the Autogas is costing £1.29Kg. So 47 Kg would cost £60.50 That is to within a fiver of the cheaper suppliers of 47Kg gas bottles and a 16p differential between delivered bulk LPG and autogas is derisory considering the tax differentials.

So all the above about fitting a lance on an LPG tank would seem uneconomic. You looking at a totally different price as an industrial buyer Vessey?

Fitting the lance/hand or electric pump is simple its siting the bulk tank according to regulations which can be the disadvantage for most but the advantages make it well worth it Wink

Mike I was looking at what might be achievable legally by someone who already buys bulk LPG.
I think myself and Mr Vessey are ploughing different furrows. I think he is referring to bulk diesel where I know years ago the savings were massive. That is on bulk NOT red.
A week or two ago I had an introduction into the world of the legal use of waste vegatable oil. The options for what is possible then the options on process and finally the legal restrictions are such that I didn't even bother mentioning it.
Fair point but I wasn't mentioning anything that isn't squeaky clean.

Thought the allowance for veg oil use was fairly high so making it worth while,

I said I wasn't getting into that.
Yes 2500litres a year
So it's also collecting 50litres + per week.
Having space away from home as a smell between a fish and chip shop and rotting corpses doesn't endear you to the neighbours.
The equipment isn't cheap the commercially offered stuff is dubious.
Not setting fire to yourself or poisoning yourself makes the venture more positive.
You could just filter and twin tank but this isn't suitable for common rail diesels.
You can't buy then hire or loan the expensive equipment to a fellow producer.
There is a certain amount of art to it and coming to a grinding halt or wrecking an engine tends to demoralise people.
There is an amount of residual fats to dispose of.

The savings on bulk diesel are small when you look at the theft issues...I'm talking of bulk LPG storage for your heating & how cheap that is compared to LPG at the pumps due to having no tax

Forget brewing bio diesel i'll add a photo for you tomorrow to show you why...
