Afternoon,

Can anyone point me in the direction of a website that will show me where LPG is available, we have a dual fuel Patrol, however would like to be able to utilise gas as much as possible.

We are planning a 4 week trip from Canberra around SA/Ayers Rock/Alice Springs and the Simpson Desert.

Thanks in advance.

Kerrie.

No LPG available in Boulia, Bedourie, Birdsville, Marree, Windorah, Quilpie, maybe Lyndhurst/Leigh Creek.

Hi Ruth,

Thanks for the info, expect probably half the places we will be travelling will be the same.

As a matter of interest how expensive is unleaded petrol out there at present?

Hello Mrs Boo - did you give your husband a good slapping the other night? (the Post about age).
Now, unleaded petrol is about $125/litre I think. Sorry only know about diesel which is $129.9 last week. Hope that helps.

Kerrie,
Don't overlook the fact that whilst LPG may be shown as available in a town, this is not always the case.
Pump breakdowns do occur and the storage tank may be empty, awaiting next delivery.
Also some vehicles are hard to fill on LPG , when they are hot.
Its always a good idea to make sure enough petrol is on board to get between towns.

Last Aug Bathurst 43cpl,Dubbo 58,Nyngan 72, cobar 68, Wicannia90, Broken Hill 56, yunta 53, hawker 52, Wilpena pound 63, none at Arkaroola, Leigh Ck 83, Coober Pedy 63, Cadney 83, Marla 74, Erldunda79, Alice was 63 - 8c off with a docket from IGA, Ti Tree 81, Tennant Ck 69. Thanks to world demand LPG prices are up by 40% in Sydney in 6 months. That alpga website will give you the bad news about Saudi Arabian prices per tonne over the last few years. read it and weep. good luck with the trip. Hope you get to see lots of wildflowers.

hahaha, there's always some excuse Warrie. If everyone want's it the price goes up. if nobody wants it the price goes up to mantain their margin...it's all rhetoric, excuses and crap.

Mrs. Boo - I went up today and fuelled up (going fishing on Sunday a.m.) and to my horror discovered the diesel cost : $1.39.
