If someone had forecast this 10-20 years ago we would have thought they were barking mad, as it is we are the ones that are mad paying 109 pence for a litre of un-leaded petrol!

Can you believe they intend to fly and use old plastic bags for fuel?

Where are you getting your fuel for £1.09? Best I can manage is around £1.18....And diesel for the company vehicles was recently as high as £1.28!

Unleaded is 109p at most outlets here in Norwich.

I notice that they didn't use a new car. If you have a deep fat fryer at home, all that build up of gummy crud you get on the basket will soon gum up the valves and pump... A very expensive mistake.

Thats why fuel processes are so complex, and why they refine it so finely for road use.

Isn't there someone from petro/chemicals on here.

Is it legal to make your own bio-diesel? I looked at that out of curiosity, a while ago. It's a bit complicated and you need a few chemicals that need to be stored/handled carefully, but didn't look like rocket science. Not sure it would be successful en masse though, as if enough people started using cooking oil, government would soon slap a huge tax on it anyway.

"Is it legal to make your own bio-diesel?"

Perfectly legal, but you do need to inform Customs and Excise and pay the appropriate duty to use it as road fuel. Still much cheaper than diesel though once you recoup the cost of the equipment needed to refine it for the car.

Morrisons - trouble is Fran just cannot resist 'just a quick check' which ends up, up and down every aisle - the resultant bill just takes the edges off it a wee bit ;o)

:) Sadly, the trip to my nearest Morrisons would negate any saving on the fuel :(
