 Fuelwatch doesnt cover it,

 Fuelwatch doesnt cover it, but I remeber it being not too bad when there 4 months back.
More to the point one of the Billabongs was same as lowest Geraldton price

oh shit

Mon, 2019-06-17 10:17

 Think that may have been an “oh shit” moment...

I wouldn’t think that’d even be something to joke about doing, in this day and age, probably because its so common.

Id prob ask Adam to delete this

Wish my wife paid for my boat fuel. I’d be 2 grand better off after the last few weeks.

I use my credit card to pay

Tue, 2019-06-18 08:49

I use my credit card to pay for my monthly expenses and purchases and use the points to redeem fuel cards which is more than enough to tottle around the 3 mile.

Petrol Spy.

Mon, 2019-06-17 09:19

According to PetrolSpy, fuel at Tradewinds Supermarket Denham was 156.9 the other day.
Overlander has it for 169.9 today .
Hope it helps.
We are heading up there on saturday but putting fuel in before i leave to get some cheap runs in. Got it for 118.5 the other day.
Put the PetrolSpy app on your phone, it may help on your trip. Found it better that Fuelwatch..IMO.

 I've never heard of that one, always used Fuelwatch or Fuelmap.
Why is it better?

Map

Mon, 2019-06-17 12:55

I just like the map option. Instead of trying to remember post codes or places, you just tap the map.
personal preference i guess......

 The Fuelwatch app changed a year or so back, for us country bumpkins on the app you could select NOR and get cheapest fuel while driving in from the north, but not now.

Can on website but not app

If Iran keeps hitting oil

If Iran keeps hitting oil tankers its going to jump through the roof very quickly...

Iran ??

Mon, 2019-06-17 12:26

Do you realy think it was Iran, if they went to all that trouble you would think they would torpedo a full tanker.
Those ones were sitting a long way out of the water.
Yup another "conspiracy" theory. Haha

Yup, why would they want a boat load of crude oil wash up on their shoreline? It would be catastrophic

not crude

Mon, 2019-06-17 18:43

 From what I saw the tankers contained naptha and methanol, not crude oil.

But I agree it could just have easily been either of them.

 Methanol and Naptha is like meths, very big fireball etc but will evaporate very quickly in a spill.

Whoever did it probably chose well

Exactly

Unless they want countries to stop shipping through the gulf and there by create a shortage of oil being shipped from the gulf and then the good honest countries will deal with Iran to get their oil and to hell with the imbargo the good old Usa wants enforced

Mon, 2019-06-17 12:05

 

Went to Shark Bay (Tamala) 3 weeks back, fuel was cheaper at Geraldton and overlander than it was in Perth (although only by a few cents).

 I noticed when I spent Xmas at Leeman they didn't adjust the price each day it was the same from memory, the day left I was tossing up to buy in Leeman or Perth I chose Perth and got slugged an extra 20 cents a litre but that was around new years.
