GPS position of Petrol service station QLD/NT outback: Cheap Diesel

I would welcome a GPS register of the Cheap and maybe good Petrol Sattions who sell
there Diesel at a reasonable price.
Most of my 4WD trip are around 10000 kms which is in average of $1000 of Diesel per trip.
I would like to refuel at the cheapest Petrol Station, but the trick here is to know if it is worth
refuel now or later.
The postion of the petrol (Diesel) is important.
Anyomne has any GPS point from good Diesel Stations in outback QLD and NT?
Fuel watch is good but it would be excellent if the GPS location of EACH fuel station was clearly marked?
How many time the fuel station is 5 or 10 kms before or after a town?
very hard to guess.
The GPS is the solution.

this is probably one of the better questions that has been asked for awhile. I am in the same siutation and am sick of going to the bigger truck stops thinking that I am getting cheap diesel when a couple of k's the other side of town the fuel is up to 5c /ltr cheaper, when you consider we are buying up to 200 lts at a time it all adds to our expenses. I will watch this column closely because I am in the same boat.

Do you think enough people would be preapared to help me.
I cab display ALL the Petrol Service Stations and include "some" Petrol Station in the
OUTBack with their GPS position and some prices.
If other people are prepared to send me emails to fill my gaps of knowledge

I know that this doesn't help too much, but I find that with all servo's, if BEFORE you pump the fuel that you ask for a cheaper price for over 100 litres, that you will generally get that 5c per litre off ... sometimes more.

This is very interesting.
To be more technical how do you do it?

I have a Nissan GU and my maximum tank capacity is 120 litres.
I am prepared to wait for the last drop, say around 110 Lires.
Do you think Diesel station will give 5 cts off for 110 Litres Diesel?

May be it looks stupide, but how do you ask?

Simple really. Pull up at the pump, go into the attemdant and say "I am going to fill up with about 100 Litres of diesel, how about a discount". If he says no, and there are other fuel outlets close by simply say "Ok, I will go to one of the others then !!" Or at that point you can decide to accept it or say again "Aww come one, give us a break " etc ...

Simply a matter of asking ... most will oblige.

Andrew.
