Time was when the price difference between four star petrol and diesel was quite wide.
Today I noticed a service station offering 4 Star at 99.99 / litre and diesel was being offered at 103.99 :eek:
So is this a widespread pratice :?: How long before parity is achieved, if that is the objective :?:

We had parity last year. The gap is opening up round here and is now 12p/ltr

Interesting that you should post just now Tom because I noticed only yesterday that we have reached parity :!:
Sainsbury's of Biggleswade, just off the A1 in Bedfordshire are offering all fuels except the very posh one at 99.99p / litre, beat that :lol:

I bet you the secret goal is parity of mpg.
You pay more for dielsel because you use less!
So, current proximity probably temporary

Yes, but what was the difference between that and other fuels, the subject of this topic :?: :)

Just come back from 2 weeks in Jeddah (where i'll be moving to later this year for 3 years) 95 unleaded equivalent of 6.5p per litre.

Now for that SV8!
