Petrol/Diesel Prices

Not sure where to put this, so shoved it in here.

Sick of the stupid price of petrol, i did some research, and found a way to save money when filling up. Just hints and tips, but it may help some people. Tried it, and it works, not massive savings, but every little helps.

Save money when you top up with petrol or diesel | A Super Income

enjoy

Money saving tip , it works FREE.

here is a money saving feature, as above not lottery related but it saves money for all on the forum. Directory enquiries costs a lot of money on all numbers starting with 118 etc. call FREE 0800 100 100. this service is totally FREE, you just listen to a very short advert before you get your number,try it !. maybe it is a good place to advertise e-lottery, i havnt checked this out, prices for ad. etc. but could be a good rotor type ad.

thought a lot about lpg, however the cost to convert my car, when I work it out 2 weeks back I would need to do 100,000 miles in the car, to make a profit, and seeing as I dont intend to keep my car that long it (for me ) isn't worth it.

However it is for a lot of people, and the way petrol keeps going up. Who knows maybe soon it will.

Damn scumbags - they say that diesel is going to be over 1.50 per litre by september. What a joke!!

I remember that when I started driving petrol was cheaper than a litre of orange juice. (13 years ago) hehe

I have an idea. Buy a disused petrol station amongst friends and set up in business as a members only fuel cooperative.

So get the quantity wholesale discount price and lock in the price until the underground tanks needs re-filling.

Or even use it to stockpile the fuel to sell again in say 5 years time.

Then your fuel depot may be like something out of a Mad Max movie.

Just a thought

Lol... great idea, might end up costing more than the money we would save though. Mad Max, what a legend.

Go and sign this all, its got one day left and is the second biggest petition on the gov website with over 270,000 names....

Petition to: Reduce Fuel duty to bring fuel prices back to an acceptable level.

One day left to sign.
