Anyone (locals?) know if you can get Petrol in Jersey quayside or even like Alderney where they have a helpful garage 5 minutes up the hill...

Daniel, yes it's on the right as you enter the harbour. Pumps are high up on the quay side so you need to lower them down to the boat and its a long way at low water.

Traffic lights for permission to enter the harbour are high up when your in a rib so do look up at the harbour control tower, you don't want to meet a ferry coming out.

Fuel Pontoon

Use the Shell fuel pontoon first on right as if entering la collette yacht basin. Cheaper, easier and 4 petrol pumps I think.

Gorey on east coast 8am til 6pm +3 or -3 from High tide. Very easy to fill up but you may have to wait if it is a Sunday and there are lots of French.

Gorey harbour dries out but if you have a tidal plotter like on my garmin or have the time to do it the old way.... when the tide reaches 5.5m on the rise you will have about 0.6m of water which is perfect for me to get alongside the fuel berth usually first!! I say on the rise cos if you aim for it on the drop you will have a very long delay after fuelling and an opportunity to scrub the hull!!

Hope this helps

Think I paid about 68p a litre on my last fill. Diesel is around the 74ppl mark.

Makes me sick - when you think Britain has some of the cheapest petrol in the World without tax. The logistics of getting the fuel to Jersey are much more involved. No refineries and a much smaller market and yet 1/2 the price!!!

My Dad filled up in Guernsey a few weeks back at about 60p/L for marine diesel... He was balking at the price as in 2003 he was paying 20 something pence... not funny when your capacity is 3,800 litres!

They have blue marine unleaded in Guernsey now too. Since they have scrapped road tax they have put the tax on fuel instead which makes more sense as what you pay is directly proportional to what you use... unlike over here where (if the government have their way) I will be paying 400 per year road tax for a car that only does 2,000 miles per year and hence produces less annual CO2 than most of the cars on the road!

Anyway... this extra tax obviously wasn't fair for boat users, so they now have concessionary petrol for marine use which is dyed blue!
