I wonder if he's got a Club card 🤔
I check the trollies in the car park to see if there's any BIG shoppers that do not use a Club card and just discard their receipt.....off to customer services "add these to my card please" ;) lOl

:yt:
but gets even worse when you stop and think . we got about 30 lorries ,at our site , most are out during the day and about half out at night , and that's 24/7 all year we only close for christmas day and new years day, so if we say on average 40 lorries doing same journeys, that 40 x £350 = £14,000 a day in fuel cost or a little over £5,000,000 a year :shock:

VAT regd. and it is tax deductable, so not as bad as they make out...At least it was when I was doing it...And at the moment you get 113% for the purchase price of a commercial vehicle and it is claimable in a 12 month period...So the gaffer drives around in a Range Rover for good reason, you and the rest of the tax payers are paying for it!!!

Now, let`s talk about farmers..... lOl

Yet another fuel shortage because of smellies blocking refineries apparently. Daughter is coming up to god’s country tomorrow with my grandchildred and can’t get any diesel - which is a bit tedious ;)

Looks like the press have learned the leson from last time or are being told to keep quiet about it. It’s a funny old world :D

I normally do use the super/ultimate in my older vehicles as it is reported to be better for the fuel system, long term ( injectors , pump etc. ) same as my bike get the super/ ultimate E5 low ethanol petrol.
It’s just the price differential between the normal and super appears to be widening.
