I went out this afternoon and used most of my boat fuel up on principle. Had an encounter with 9 dolphin off old Harry. Great weather, great afternoon came back and queued at a petrol garage to buy a pint of milk....... You should have seen the faces of people, priceless.. Made me laugh for ages.

I reckon late summer would be a good time for a Jurrassic cruise, will give it some thoughts.

Just read that. Decanting petrol for her daughter IN THE KITCHEN??

"Her daughter asked her mum for petrol because she had run out. The cooker was on and the fumes ignited."

So, from that we can take it that: Petrol + cooker (on) = fire.

hope she's not too bad.

I was filling up in Newport (Wales) today and some guy turned up at a pump carrying a 5L petrol can and the queue nearly lynched him They were shouting about him panic buying and he was shouting back that he had ran out of fuel around the corner, the forecourt attendant stood next to him while he filled the can up

I think we need a ministry of common sense.

I think the drivers of these tankers must be laughing all the way to the bank. Their union tried to tell us it was not over money but safety and longer hours. Now all the drivers have been told they can work longer hours ( so much for their worries on safety)
