Momentum was 195.9 a litre yesterday in Crediton.
Obviously with a 90-litre S8 tank "Pay at pump, limit 99" wasn't an option.....

It was 194.9 on Sunday HP. Saw that nice shiny car and thought you could afford an additional bump in price.

Came across an interesting site that lists global fuel prices. Here's a screenshot of petrol prices, and I've highlighted the UK... if you can find it. The site is at:

I put some fuel in at Costco last week, premium petrol was 1.86/L which is not bad considering most premium fuels are around the 2 mark, still an absolute rip off though.

Costco have raised their 99 limit to 120 although with just over 1/4 tank it still didn't fill it up
