Just had the shock of my life, filled my van with diesel and it cost me £100.00. As you can see from the picture below, I only managed to put 72 litres in as the van has and 80 litre tank. If I had of filled it the cost would of been around £138.00. On a more positive note at least I can claim the 20% vat back which is included in the pump price.
My van is not the most economical, it’s a VW LT35 LWB, 2.9litre TDI 158bhp. Around town it will return 17mpg and on a run about 30mpg so on average its about 24mpg which give or take a few miles its about 480 miles on a full tank and for those of you who read this blog over the pond in the U.S.A us Brits are paying the equivalent of $11.00 a gallon.
On a happier note I’m going to take down the outside Christmas Trees and lights this weekend as I feel I can no longer pass them off as my Easter decorations.
