When the servos end up stopping their long weekend price gouging, you know that the situation is serious…

Get in before the US military calls in an airstrike over Campbelltown to raid their vast petroleum stocks.

    Yikes.. is it true petrol goes stale if it sits around? I've even read ethanol speeds up that process.

        Mine told me at my last service my blinker fluid needed replacing. He said if I let it run out I could be up for a completed blinker cylinder replacement. Thank god he is honest and knows what he is talking about.

          Dammit! My bike has been under wraps for 6 months. I'll likely need to replace every part except for the seat and mirrors now! #KerbAlert

          Oh I had that too, he offered to sell me a left handed screwdriver so I could fix it myself. Bargain.

          My friend wanted to know if his car’s blinker was working.

          He turned it on and I said, “Yes. No. Yes. No. Yes. No…”

    •  

      Yes, no, not really, depends.

      No. Not in the example we're discussing here.

      Yes it does. Ask any boat owner that has petrol sitting in their boat for longer than 6 months…

      •  

        There’s a difference between sitting in a boat fuel tank where it’s picked up contamination and has various ways of air getting in the system via relief valves, and between an clean airtight container stored correctly.

        •  

          Suggest you look up the definition of a valve.
          Also look up the shelf life of petrol.
          Lastly look up researching topics before responding with stupid answers in public forums.

            @Bangbus: maybe you can liaise with petrol companies and oil manufacturers before ass-uming you know what experience i have in the field.
            and if you think a petrol container/jerry can is the same as a boat fuel tank, that is moronic.

    Waiting for it to hit the price of just the tax (excise + GST would be at 47.5c a litre). Then I'll stock up for when car prices crash and I'll finally buy a car.

    Get it whilst it lasts, Comrade Putin and the Saudi's haved kissed and made up and will start cutting oil production.

      Coming soon (as soon a production can start) to a small screen near you:

      Comrades & Skeikhs

      source?

      I know there's lots of talk about a deal coming (mostly by Trump) but my understanding is it's still very much at an impasse.

      Saudis and Russia both want a cut but not without USA joining in, otherwise we have a repeart of the 2014-2016 price war where USA just gains more global oil share on the other side. Its funny how the media reports this as a war between Saudi and Russia, it isn't and never has been. Their common "enemy" has always been USA.

      That said, eventually Trump will apply enough pressure (by threatening sanctions or other bully tactics) to bring about oil cuts (without committing to any himself) and we'll go back to where we were.

      Even if an agreement was reached today, the global glut will take 9 months to drain. But since Oil is a very manipulated commodity, we'll see a bull run to $35-40 within a month of an agreement is my tip. (Previously purchased Oil ETF's at $26 USD during the last price war, sold for over double a year later :))

      Comrade Putin and the Saudi's haved kissed and made up and will start cutting oil production.

      Mainstream media dribble.

      Reality: oil futures just dropped below $0, why would they not cut production.

    I am a big fan of the quality of fuel we get at 7/11 so I will wait till 7/11 gets to this price.

  •  

    What surprises me is that those same budget stations in that area have U91 that's so much more expensive. Normally it's just a couple of cents difference to E10.

      Many people do not realise that E10 only has less than 3 weeks of being good quality. It does not make sense to fill it up if you do not drive much now.

      E10 there is expiring like markdown food in the supermakert (maybe <1 week life). Once the tank is refilled, it'll be back to normal price.

        So people use E10 and not using the full tank for 3 weeks then their engine will blow up?

        •  

          Very bad for fuel injectors and other components when you eventually start driving again. Peter above is correct.

          98 octane has a longer shelf life, closer to 3 months I believe. There is also Fuel stabilizers one can use if concerned.

          But don't fill up with stale E10.

    Jesus, how can it be that cheap. Tax alone per litre is already about 50c. So how much is that petrol costing them if theyre charging 60c a litre

  •  

    E10 is such a rubbish fuel they should be paying us to put it in our tank.

    Let the oil wars begin! Negative cost of production must be about 99% worldwide at $20/bbl.
