    All very well, but it simply isn't true. Most garages in France are charging between 1.48 and 1.52. Yes, if you try hard you can pay more, but there is no need.
    In the UK it is more expensive than France.

    My fuel tank holds 80 litres.
    If I put 75 litres in and save 10c a litre.. I've earned 7.50€. To earn that, it's another 1.88€
    in tax.
    That gives me. A notional 9.38€ to spend on beer.
    A litre of Lidl beer is 98c.
    So for almost no effort, I'm 9 litres of free beer better off.

    It would be madness not to do it.
    That's why Yorkshireman happily drive to Spain.
    Its called " Yorkshire-nomics.".

    Heres a good link for Spanish fuel prices near you ...Keep a look out for Eroski supermarkets they usually have great prices but they can few and far between ..

    Yeah, but we don't use them.
    Management says they all smell musty.
    I can't argue.. She's the pilot.

    i was born in doncaster,
    i say take 200 quids worth of food thats cheaper in uk than in spain.
    you dont save alot ,perhaps twenty quid .
    but buy twenty ltrs of spanish wine that would cost 90 quid in uk.
    so using yorkshire -nomics we get 90quids worth of wine free.
    but fit big fuel tanks then you dont need to buy fuel in portugal.
    4-500ltr tanks work great.

    Costco are doing premium diesel for 1.30, you need to be a member and your membership card is scanned.
    If we all agreed there would be no discussion, and it would be a dull boring world.

    Management can't pass a supermarket without going in.. While I fuel up the van.
    I'm in no position to argue.. She'd leave me in Salford, if I ever did...
