- How much to fill up with petrol?
If we are on fumes it costs £60 to fill up our Grand Cmaxerati.
The person before me at the pump had paid £92 for their petrol.
I got to wonder what sort of vehicle has a tank that takes £92 and what the is the most you can fit in a car/ van at a filling station.
Anyone done the Ton filling up?Posted 4 weeks agoandytherocketeerSubscriber
€80 worth of 98 octane, bit cheaper for 95 if that’s all that’s available (works but not the preferred grade).
That’s the theoretical amount. I’ve put in €70+ a few times at the same price with the gauge toggling between 20 and 10 km left. Current prices are also 40¢ /litre off the peak too.Posted 4 weeks agowelshfarmerSubscriber
The VW T5 regularly swallows over £100. Worst I had was a Land Rover Discovery TD5 the last time Deisel got up to £1.40 back around 2012. I got over £110 in that thing. Mind you my mate has long range tanks in his Defender, and while in Italy we got over 200 euros in that and still had to fill it again later the same day (towing a trailer back to the UK in one hit)Posted 4 weeks agoScapegoatSubscriber
Yep, I remember the Discovery costing over a ton fumes to filler cap, especially when diesel was over 135p a litre. It had an impressive range though, especially at legal motorway speeds, useful for camping trips to France.Posted 4 weeks ago
HiLux costs about 70 quid to fill from the time the fuel light comes on.thenorthwindMember
Obviously it depends, went into peas pottage services the other day & it was £1.50 😯 normally around £1.30 per l
Is it just me or have motorway services filling stations got even more relatively expensive?
I’m sure they used to only charge a few p/l more than off the motorway, but now they seem to be 20p/l more at least. Does this mean people have got more lazy? You’d think with mpgs in the 50s being nothing special and most cars having at least 500 miles range there’d be no need for them. Maybe that’s the reason – they’re only there for the very desperate/lazy.Posted 4 weeks agothisisnotaspoonSubscriber
It does seem bonkers when you step back and think about it.
Bike parts; I’d spend weeks contemplating spending £100 on a waterproof top. Yet setting fire to £100 of hydrocarbons wouldn’t have raised an eyelid.
Since changing my work to something more local with less traveling I’ve suddenly got money in the bank at the end of the month! Not to mention the environmental impact of burning £100 of fuel!Posted 4 weeks agosharkbaitMember
90L tank in my car.
If I take the boat to fill it up for the summer, and fill the car at the same time, then I’m looking at a total of 450L!!
If there’s a silver lining it’s the a full tank in the boat usually lasts the summer and if I fill the car (very rare) it’s showing a range of nearly 800 miles which is not bad for a big car.Posted 4 weeks agophil5556Member
T5 close to £100 of diesel and 450ish Miles.
330D about £70 diesel and 450ish to 500 miles.
Polo GTI about £50 petrol and 320ish.
Just from vague memory, I don’t pay that much attention tbh.
The Polo is going soon though and being replaced by an i3 which I won’t have to put fuel in and will become the main commuter vehicle for us.Posted 4 weeks ago
