I don't know, but I can tell you that 15 years ago I was outraged to be charged 35p/litre for diesel at Falmouth and paid something like 11p/litre in Scrabster!

Funny, I was looking through some old pics the other night and found one with our local BP in the background. 42p/litre for unleaded and diesel was cheaper than petrol.

Petrol Prices

Still cheap compared to beer, but the Etec doesn't like beer

We switched from solid fuel to oil heating in the mid 90's, the first heating oil we bought was 8p/l, yup that's right 8p/l It's now around 55p/l but has been as high as 77p/l. Now we've got solar panels, the Gov. pays us to heat our water or at least it does when the feckin sun shines

Yes things have changed; My first post was asking about bareboat charter on the south cost - and now I am lucky enough to own a RIB.
