    Default Petrol & Diesel queues

    Everyone,

    It's chaos out there!!!

    The queues for fuel are horrific in Birmingham, many stations are out of fuel already. Some who have fuel have already upped the price as well.

    Did not think it would start this early. Everyones trying to fill up before Wed.

    i may fill up with diesel tonight. Should last a few weeks

    although, reading my 'metro' paper this morning the protestors, or 'the fuel lobby' as they are offically known have said they wont be restricting supplies to petrol stations like they did last time. So theres no need to panic buy.

    I've just filled up at a local garage near my work in Bradford. Two thirds of the Diesel pumps were out of use and all the pumps were well busy.

    I'm off next week as well, trouble is I'm driving to Devon. I filled up the weekend. Im Showing a range of 630 miles which will improve if I do motorway miles & restrain my right "hammer" foot. I'm hoping I can manage from now till then & come back on the same tank.

    If its still on when I get back I'll be stuck then, but at least I'll be home.

    Filled the signum up today at Tesco Wrexham, massive queues but for some reason people were only using the pumps on the flap side of their car so only had to wait a mo for a pump on the wrong side then strectched the hose over to the fuel flap.
    Only trouble is we are going up to Berwick upon Tweed a week today for a hol with the kids!!!
