Recently, refuelling at Pt Augusta I was looking at the bowser and noticed a difference in the prices of diesel. One side of bowser was small nozzle pump and was obviously for cars, 4WD etc. The other side was large nozzle pump with a sign "Trucks only". However looking at the little price meter at the bottom, the small pump side read the same as the advertised price of $1.26.9. The meter on the other side was only $1.25.6. My question is - Is this practice normal? Do trucks normally get a discount off the advertised price? Should we make it normal practise to fill at the trucks pumps?

H Ian. Usually the Truck Only signs are to let people know that it has the large size hi-flow nozzle that won't fir in most diesel vehicles. I reckon its just a booboo on the servos behalf.

Would you believe we are still paying 1.43/l for diesel in Roxby. Absolute &%$king rort!!!
