Was told this story the other day, about ULP was going to be the same price as Diesel, another furfy I thought, because the oil companies were not making enough out of diesel with the current down turn.
Had to fill up the Wizard, with diesel, today and as I was doing so was looking at the prices ULP$1.12.9, PULP $1.22.9 and Diesel $1.14.9. Went for a drive down to the next servo and the same prices. So what have you noticed in your area?

I guess if we complain long enough about the differential then they would have no choice! You didn't really think they would drop the price of diesel did you?

Kind regards

Looking at this link will improve your knowledge of the movement in prices for fuel as they relate to Australian pricing. Our fuel price is set by the Singapore price for petrol I believe.

Diesel is cheaper than ulp at the moment.

Diesel will probably get even cheaper as the mining industy winds down, and demand drops.

Around our area (Epping, Pennant Hills etc) dsl is only a cent or two higher than ULP or E10 at the most. I think the Mobil at Epping was actually lower today.

South side of Brisy.

Beginning of the weekly cycle when ULP is up, it is about 1 to 2c a litre MORE than diesel.

At the moment both about the same price.
By end of the cycle, ULP will be 1 to 2c cheaper.

That's at the local Woolies, Freedom, Mobil, but the Mobil is out of fuel at the moment.

All sitting about $1.11.xx per litre for diesel.

About time.

The fuel prices on exploreoz show Vic Diesel to be 1.29 and ULP as 1.11 Where do thse come from. I haven't seen diesel over 1.19 for a week or so or ULP under 1.18. Even the prices shown for indivual servo's are 10 - 12 cents wrong.

The great con on Aussies by the Oil barons is sickening enough but the quality of our diesel compared with low cetane levels and higher sulphur levels is more than a concern. A certain major oil companies Premium ULP has damaged race bike engines with legal suites going nowhere. Audi's top of the range 4 wheel quickies wont come to Oz because of fuel issues/warrantee.

BP Biggera Waters has both ULP and Diesel at 109.9 .

For anyone on the Gold Coast they are the cheapest BP I see
at most times of year, and is where I fill up.
Privately owned might be the reason
