Hit 1:65 for ULP which isn't too bad. Carry 50 lt you can avoid most of it
I figure they are proving a valuable service in the middle of nowhere so just buy the fuel and cop it sweet mate

Avoid the Border BP ($1.65) and get fuel at Eucla ($1.43) if needed. That is for diesel 6 weeks ago. Best to fuel up at Ceduna and get to Norseman, but it depends on your range!

While I don't like wasting money either, sometimes it pays to get the calculator out and check things.

IF you put in 100 litres at the dearer $1.65 it's only $22.00 dearer.

A good saving for sure, but it won't break the bank either.

many thanks for your comments. more a curiousity question than a financial consideration.

Our trip will be 13000-14000 km Adl-Leinster-Pt Headland-Mt Augustus-Perth-Albany-Adl once we add in all the rubber necking tourist spots.

X-g Nullabor isn't an issue, we added up previous x-gs, around 7 since '75 (old road - LWB V4 Ford Transit - OMG !!) but this trip we're on the "slow boat west", dropping into Maralinga and several of the Gr8 Aust Bight cliff top spots.

travel safe

From another forum on 01May.

On the Fuel Map app,

Caiguna $1.59 1 day ago
Border Village $1.60 BP
Eucla $1.48 Caltex
Mundrabilla $1.48
Madura $1.56
Cocklebeddy $1.55
Balladonia $1.55
Norseman BP $1.25

Why not get yourself a copy of the Fuelmap app Fuel Map that will show you a map and the location/prices of the fuel type you define.
