the floating tax-free ship - just outside territorial waters- unfortunately was tried some 10 years ago- and got raided by C&E. Anybody remember radio caroline?? doesnt matter if its anchored out of all jurisdiction ---"THEY" alawys find some way of closing it down... 'danger to shipping' ect ect.

The point is that if they are selling red diesel for boats .. then petrol should also be de- taxed and as codders said this would come down to some 30 p a liter

Good idea in theory. We have a fuel barge moored in Falmouth harbour. It has massive rubber fenders along each side, but with a bit of sea running in a decent size hard boat it's bloody tricky getting along side. One 12m off in the winter would be nightmareish!! :-/


BUT do they sell tax free ( duty+VAT) eurosuper95??

Nope, but they'll give you a crackin' rendition of Pavarotti's Nessun Dorma. :-) Just ask for Denzil or Joe.

My grandmother (who is from Guernsey) was telling me today that the authorities don't like you "importing" petrol from Guernsey. Appranlty offically you are not allowed to take a fuel car tank back.....

Can anyone shed any light on this; will I get "busted" if I fill the car (and 10 or so 5litre cans) up with cheap petrol??

I think that the ferry companies get very upset about cans. Never seen anybody being asked to drain their car's fuel tank on the quayside though!
