The current petrol station pump price is 1.405 and I can discount this to 1.31. However, our supplier may get more stock in this week and that could change either way. Unlike Guernsey and Jersey we have only one supplier (ie no compettion) and are stung by carriage costs. I'd love to be able to offer more but....... Having said that if any of you are interested in any VAT free chandlery or little 2 stroke outboards let us know and I'm sure we can arrange a floptilla discount! Just make yourself known to staff in the shop and we can give you 10%.

Good memory you have there! That turned out to be a melted wiring loom so not connected to this mess. I have had to replace a few injectors in the last year or 2 but on both engines. I'm still not 100% sure about what's what anyway as all the info I'm getting is 3rd hand as well as in french

Sounds good

Looking a bit better for Sunday now but still watching carefully.

Our current plan it to leave Needles (3 boats) / Poole (2 boats) at 11:30 and meet at a point equidistant between Poole and Needles and a bit South, then turn for Alderney. We'll probably be at the Needles early so that we can gather the Southampton / Gosport boats together. I expect we'll be there to say hello to the ribnet group. I assume you will be heading straight across from the Needles so we'll be following on a very slightly course but not far behind.

Just called Premier Service in Jersey, it's currently 88p in Gorey and 90p in St. Helier.

95p in Guernsey

Was it 130 or something in Alderney? Mainbrayce's post has mysteriously disappeared

Looks like Jersey is the place to be then

Didn't they have a trans-channel fuel line for the liberation of Europe?

Willk probably has the plans somewhere, it should be possible to find it.

We are going to be in St Peter Port this weekend (flying down rather than boating) looking at a possible "next boat"

Good Luck to everyone planning and have my fingers crossed for some decent weather for us all!
