    Petrol Station near Farnham July 1992

    Came across this photo when scanning my tons of Capri photos for updates to my site (yet to be uploaded as at 21/08/11)



    Anyway, a fill up (Passat) on those prices back then would've cost me just over £23, where as last week it cost just on £80!!

    So unleaded goes up approx 200% in 20 years, wonder if the average wage has?

    If only we could get fuel for £2 odd a gallon now, I bet most cars on the road would have a V8. The sad fact is I can remember my dad saying, " the way things are going we'll be paying £1 a gallon before long " chance would be a fine thing now.
    the difficult takes time, the impossible takes a little longer

    I remember my old man selling his mk IV Zody Exec when fuel hit £1 a gallon..." I'm not paying that ! "
