How much money for a little bit of fuel?

  1. Hey guys!
    It may sound like an ugly question... But I am serious!
    Here in Italy we pay about 1.4 Euros for 1 litre of fuel
    (how do you call it by the way? fuel? gas? petrol?)

    And I was just wondering how much you do pay...

    Please, let me know something from the beautiful Australia ;-)

  2. Petrol/fuel (pfft to gas.. only yanks say that) costs $1.25 mid-week and usually ramps up to about $1.35 - $1.40 on weekends

    well thats how its going in my area at the moment.. apparently theres a big price rise on the horizon :cry:
  3. I paid about EU0.80 per litre this morning for petrol.

    Automotive LPG (the Americans call it propane) is about EU0.37 per litre.
  4. Man, lucky to find Premium under AU$1.50 around Sydney right now.
  5. In comparison (ie cost of living in each country) it is more or less equal
    In conversion terms 1.4 euros is about AU $2.32 per litre
    We call it petrol here.
    Gas is what comes out of our arse ;)
  6. Really? Judging by some of the stuff that ends up on netrider I always assumed we called those things 'posts'


    edit; no I didn't specifically mean you smee

  7. Hehehehe guilty as charged :wink:
  8. Yeah fuel varies depending on where you are in the country. It was 1.47 (0.88 Euro) here the other day for standard (90 octane) unleaded. "Here" being outside of a capital city (typically add 5-10 cents a litre for more remote rural areas in Victoria).
    Higher grades (95, 98 and in some places 100 RON) are also available but cost slightly more, 95 is an extra 6 cents per litre for example (Edit: make that 8 cents extra).
  9. well out here in the nsw country it has been $1.45 for ages ( .87 euros ) and thats just for normal unleaded.
  10. In the Netherlands we pay appr EUR 1,50 per liter unleaded 95 petrol.
