I probably use more fuel than most people and overall it is quite a low/acceptable part of the overall cost of boating so I just put up and pay up

Hmmm well based on my maths that fuel cost me an additional 35 for 50 odd litres compared to the forecourt so I could have launched twice at one of your slipways
