    My plan is to fill up once or twice a year in the Channel Islands wher to the best of my knowledge cheap diesel will continue to be sold.

    It is if the orginal supply was for a use eligable for reduced duty and the subsequent use isn't.

    This is a good plan, although the cost of getting there has to be factored in.

    How much is it over there now? We're only 75 miles away.

    Bit of a long haul for us as we would be empty by the time we got half way back. Still if you can get there easily enough Why not.

    I am pretty sure that there will be a thriving trade in transhipped fuel from fishing boats locally (oce you are known).

    Wash service.

    I will produce a wash for you on request for 1p+VAT.

    I have now developed a commercial use for my boat, have I not?
