lorenzo:JimmyH:bazzer: Is that unexpected? By way of comparison, the Z (and the Gull) on Greville has 91 for 199.9, a lot of other nearby petrol stations have it for 208.9. I don't see any reason why LPG similarly wouldn't vary by location too?
Be careful with the Gull comparison. My understanding is that they achieve the lower price by blending in 10-15% ethanol. This makes it cheaper, but also has a lower energy density than petrol so it also means that a litre won't get you quite as far.
Ethanol 66 power of gasoline.
At 15.pc dilution that would yield approx 95.pc of the power of 100.pc gasoline. Simple comparison Gull need to sell fuel 10-12c cheaper price litre for same energy/dollar yield. Plus or minus
Interesting I hadn't thought about that before now .. Thanks
i bought a lawmower and was told not to go to gull for petrol. apparently the ethanol causes problems with some of the components (plastic or rubber ones, i assume- but didnt ask). wonder if there are any vehicles that would experience extra wear and tear due to the ethanol mix.
