Gippsland Petroleum Group has been sold to United Petroleum. The changeover happened this week. GPG owned about 30 servos from around Pakenham through to Cann River and up around the high country, South Gippsland and so on. Its major brand was Mobil until recently when it changed to Caltex. Now, United Petroleum owns them all. (there are other issues with respect to mass sackings and the installation of Asian and other migrants but that's by-the-by). Rumors persist that UP dilutes its fuel with ethanol to make it marginally "cheaper" than regular branded fuels and accordingly it may not be advertised on the bowsers. So, when you guys are out and about in Gorgeous Gippsland on a Netride or whatever, please consider this when filling up. Asking the attendant if UP fuels are tainted with ethanol is unlikely to get you an authoritative answer, or even one that you could use if damage to the bike occurs and a damages claim ensues.
