Those who can afford marina berths in the Solent probably don't have to worry about petrol costs
Of those members who live around the Solent how many would buy fuel in Cowes rather than there own harbour on a normal day out. MDL give a discount to berth holders for diesel wonder if the same applies for petrol? which encourage owners to use there own marinas.
You would be better fitting bigger tanks and visiting Alderney once a month. Launching at Ventnor, it can't be more than 55 miles.
