    However I also know the French owner of a 9m MoBo kept in Dielette & he tells me that most French owners from there exclusively fill with red in Guernsey.

    Why are Guernsey and jersey allowed to use red diesel? Oh yeah, it's cos they are outside of the EU. Why are we not just waiting to October and then saying, stuff you.
    If found in the Brexit forum, please return to the real world.

    We're giving serious consideration to moving to Alderney to get out of the range of Chairman Corbyn - but there is a lack of a decent marina!

    All very well in populated areas with dedicated private fuelling available but what about places where the supply is for commercial boats who also supply private?

    I guess that it is, regretfully, a case of "hard luck"... Unfortunately, sailing is not a fundamental human right, so nobody is going to step in with financial support.

    No.

    I know of one place where the fishing fleet are the main consumers of diesel. I doubt whether the harbour will be fitting a separate tank for white diesel. But they may well sell red at white diesel prices. I suspect this is what will happen. The option of the 60/40 split or an other split in duty will simply disappear.

    2 marine fuel pumps only for the Isle of Man. Run by a fisheries group!

    No hope of swapping them to white.

    Seem to remember that £1000 PA. could buy , a car, a holiday, a stay at home wife, a sprog or two and provide a decent semi detached roof over your head and stick something in your final salary pension pot.
    Not that long aftwerwards Tom Murrant developed an interest in boats.
