5 cans = 100ltrs = 144.50...

Diesel would have been 150.40

Sticks'n'rags, anyone?

Fuel price doesn't bother me. All the morons driving at 40mph to 'save fuel' since the prices went up do though.

I've had my L200 for approx 6yrs. When I bought it, it cost 56 to fill it from fumes to brimming. I've just filled it from very low to brimming, 85.51.

No point in moaning or altering one's boating habits, as there's f' all we can do about it. It's better to flog the boat than not use it IMV.
