    I posted on another thread that petrol and diesel were the same price in some places now.

    Well, now this...I should have known as soon as I bought a petrol again something like this would happen :Laughing:

    Ah well, good news for diesel drivers.

    This is certainly good news for diesel owners.:BooYeah:
    However, for both you and I, petrol was the right way to go WRT DPF issues. We just do cover the longer journeys often enough.

    It has always baffled me why diesel is cheaper than petrol on the continent. Are they not tied in to wholesale prices too... or is it just the Chancellor and his levies on fuel? :Fear:

    Not really bothered, diesels are slow tractors for tight fisted people lol.

    Besides, my fuel spend on average is £10 a week. That's Shell Vpower as well.

    Neing my first petrol for many many years, does the higher price v-power make much difference?

    Right after I sold my mps and got the CR-V petrol prices plummeted. Typical!

    My current tractor isn't exactly slow though lol
