For WA users checkout Fuel Watch's latest novelty. Gives you fuel cost along the way. So now the shock won't be so bad when you pull up at the pump. Not bad eh!

Rod,

My system works well for me.......I just assume diesel is going to cost me a $1.50/litre everywhere I go on holidays and I budget accordingly. That way, when I get to a servo and it's only $1.30.litre I'm as happy as a pig in the brown stuff, cos I've just saved a lot of money!!!!!???????!!!!!!! WHAT THE...??????????

Cheers

Roachie

Good one Roachie!!!!

Maybe you can use the savings as the alcohol budget. The more you save the more there is for beer!!! Gives you an incentive to shop around for the best price. (Although if there is only one fuel stop for about 400km in any direction you may need to have a Plan B).

Rod, there is also Travel Mate
http://www.travelmate.com.au
You can track places of interest, print maps, calculate distances etc. It even tracks from suburb to suburb - for those times when giving instructions to visitors.
