Default Re: Fuel Prices

grumble moan... try living in the UK.

grumble moan...


ummm, costs me about 50 to fill up my car, but it is only a small car. it's a diesel as well so the fuel is a touch more expensive.
and costs about 12 to fill my bike.
as was pointed out above. it's just something that we have to get used to I guess...

its about 3.40 3.50 in kansas so not as bad as some of you guys but still hits me pretty hard, i get paid 7/hr and work about 15 hrs. a week, so roughly 100 bucks a week, every week 20 of that goes to gas for my jeep, it sucks!

although my dads 2500 HD Silverado costs 150 or more to fill up, at best it gets 9mpg

Default Re: Fuel Prices

what unit to you measure your petrol in? ours is /l of fuel. at the moment petrol is about 1.08 a liter and diesel is about 1.13 a liter.

i think you measure it in gallons over there, so in your currency it would be

2.14374 USD per liter of petrol
2.24277 USD per liter of diesel

if you do it in gallons

it is 3.785411784 UK liters to a US gallon, so for 1 US gallon we would be paying

$8.11493865783216 per gallon for petrol
$8.48980798680168 per gallon for diesel


you guys have it easy over there.... costs me about 55 to fill it up, and its a small car..

Thats a pretty crazy conversion there I knew it was a lot. One thing though whats the average wages over there? It looks like your paying a lot more but your average wage may be higher over there and they just mark it up over there.
