Its probably just us. Most of the world cant stand us anyway. And Brexit finished off any friends we had in Europe.
Not just you guys. Brexit was/is a shitshow but fuel prices are mental everywhere. I follow a page on Facebook (it's a spin-off from an American band fan page I followed that used to have lots of Republican/Democrat arguments so they created another page to talk politics) and they're having massive fuel price hikes too. I'm lucky that I have a company car and a DCI card (even though I'm taxed through the nose on my salary). 500 litres of heating oil cost me €720 about three weeks ago. That's mental.

A bit harsh, we've just got our best result at the Eurovision Song Contest in years.
I assumed that was down to people with fat thumbs trying to vote Ukraine and accidentally selecting UK.

:eek: That's proper mental oil pricing - what do you normally pay?

Home heating oil is my pet peeve, re "What do you normally pay?". In England (for 500L):

April 2021: £215
Sept 2021: £250
Nov 2021: £300
Jan 2022: £310
March 2022: £336
May 2022: £500
Today: £548.05

It's been over £600 in the past couple of months. It's a urine extraction. ~250% increase in 14 months.... More than doubled since the start of autumn. Dreading this winter.

May 2020 we were paying £150 :mad::cry:

I think we paid nearly a grand the last time we topped up the tank.
I used to think €350 was expensive!

Want to keep filling up costs down? Buy smaller tanks.

VW T5 1.9tdi. Fuel gauge showing only just below 1/4 tank. £100 diesel later and it’s just over 3/4 😩
When i first bought it 10 years ago, £80 would have brimmed it from the fuel warning light !!
Still - we’re off to the top of the dales Friday then the east coast Saturday and Sunday. Can’t take it with you, eh ?

I read somewhere recently (might have been Facebook) where a fella reckons there's no issue with fuel increases...he only putting £20 in the tank at a time...

Afraid it's all my fault.

I bought a car that struggles to do 10MPG round town...

5.6 V8 with an autobox.



I put £100 in it the other day and it wasn't even 3/4 full.

I prefer not to think about the cost of using it :D
