I did that with heating oil back in 2020 when lockdown hit. Paid 20p a litre for 2000 litres, and only ran out last winter Almost wish I'd bought more, but it was beginning to go off.

Was it starting to taste bad and smell funny?

Wow. I paid 60p a litre for 900 litres back in the first half of February (2022). Three weeks later it was 1.20 a litre. 'Cheapest' it ever dropped to after that was 90p a litre and it's currently at 1.02... and rising.

At least I can still afford to run the car on LPG at 69.9p a litre.
