The 'meaning of life, the universe and everything' is 42.

I know because I read it in a book 'Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy' so it must be true.

Weight of Petrol

I wonder if karlT has a secret supply of "4 Star"?

If JK is coming up with 0.75 kg/litre and Karl with 0.825 kg/litre, the difference must be the lead ???

I don't know if my figure is right -- I was just converting Jon F's Imperial figures.

If we are going to be so precise does it make a difference between premium (low sulphur fuel got to make it lighter that is less sulphur) and standard. Is optimax lighter than BP's Premium if so that may be why the Ferrari team use it. These few grams difference all add up to almost a kg that is equivalent to a lump of seaweed or maybe even a couple of cans of non alcoholic beer (to get in line with the new alcohol regulations) On a sensible note what type of fuel do the class one boats use. Other than the diesels. Do they use premium or standard is it because of weight or performance does anyone know?
