We were out all day. Got quite wet later in the day! How long did you have to wait for fuel? I was quoted 2 1/2 hours wait in Hamble last weekend!

Fuel waits last weekend on Port Hamble were bad, We went down at 1030 on Sat and waited half an hour just to get fuel line even though we were moored on the pontoon and there were all types of craft holding off in the river, MDL had a fairly new staff member who had been there two weeks and only opened a deisel and petrol line leaving all other locked. He was very stressed out and I doubt he will stay there. There has definitely been a problem here for a few weeks including closing early, worth a phone call first unless going passed.

I got wet coming back - very splashy....

I guess I waited about 45 minutes at Gosport, it's the first time I've ever had to queue for petrol. Managed to splash it all over the deck too.

I normally just drive into ASDA's or the local Shell Garage to fill up. No waiting there!

It's 1.35 at the moment

I can remember when it was 1 a litre about 5 years ago and I thought that was outrageous!
