    I'm sure Better Boating (Caversham) had a sign outside stating 79p/litre when I went past this afternoon.

    I guess that is base price. Sounds like it might be reasonable at 60:40 though.
    If found in the Brexit forum, please return to the real world.

    Thats interesting Ian as it was 89p last week.

    He's always good value up there and yes it is up to the customer what split to declare.

    It's an EU rule which our HMRC did its best to avoid.

    Now that we are leaving......

    Its going to be interesting to see how that works considering the fact a lot of boats generate power and are kept warm using rebated gas oil.

    It seems a bit complicated to enforce a white diesel rule for propulsion engines. How long would your 1000 litre tank of red last for and how could you prove it.

    And the margins are probably going to be quite small so boatyards might not bother. I could see boatyards still selling red into boat tanks and its up to the customer to worry about what they use it for.

    Andy, perhaps it was 89p, but did think how cheap compared to the marina prices I pay on the East Coast, or the uxbridge Boat Centre when I take cans there.

    Really good to see you over last couple of weeks.

    RCC are charging around 90p per litre at the moment including a dose of whatever snake oil additive is cheapest.

    Nice to see you too with your lovely everyman cruiser. I couldn't own a wooden boat myself but if I did... Sweet boat.

    See you on the River.
    I like boats
