    Default Diesel Whingers

    Why the concern over diesel, poor old petrol users have been paying for years,do you think you are ''the special ones''?

    Yes. I've often been described as 'special'...
    The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, and is not preceded by a period of worry and doubt.

    and also when they bought their engine they didnt spend an extra £20k for the diesel option engine as the fuel is cheaper.

    "Poor old petrol users" had the choice for years. I bought a diesel-engined boat two years ago when diesel was a mere 55p a litre. Now we are looking at THREE times that!! And like we make that much impression on "the environment" If cars equate to less than 1%, boats must equate to no more than 0.001%. Are we saving the planet or paying for the Olympics???

    what you get for your money is top grade fuel,white diesel has a higher flash point than red so burns cleaner and engine starts are quicker as most marine diesel heaters dont like red for the reasons above usually an additive is put in the tank at £30 a bottle if i am expected to pay road prices i expect road quallity fuel

    Depends where you get your diesel. Some suppliers offer white quality with red dye. Shepperton Marina are one such.
