Just spoke to Capricorn Road House and they are starting fuel drops from early May this year at Well 23.

Six (6) weeks notice required for a drop and the current price is $500.00 per 200 litre drum of either Diesel or Unleaded obviously paid in advance.

$2.50 per litre is not to bad I guess, no expected change in the foreseeable future unless the price of Diesel goes through the roof.

John,

Thanks for the up date, Vic will be in touch soon to put our order in for 8 drums, $4,000 worth.

$2.50 per litre is still cheap, compared to $4.00 per litre at Cotton Creek last year.

No worries Wayne.
I knew there is a few going that way this year so thought the info was pertinent.

Just trying to get through the Kunawarritji also to get an update on price and availability if its required for any reason.
Will post that also once I can get someone to answer the phone.

Cheers

What stops people helping themselves to your fuel after the fuel has been dropped off? Sorry if it sounds like a silly question.

Cheers

Integrity - the trait of doing the right thing even though no chance of being caught if doing the wrong thing.

A few of us still have this quality!!!!!

Garry,

There is nothing stopping some one from stealing fuel except there conscience.

But if you did decide to act a thief you would want to make sure the rightful owner of the fuel did not turn up while you were committing the crime.

I do know that fuel that has been left in the drum has been used.

On one occasion we had just over half a drum of fuel that we could not take with us so we left a note on the drum saying that it was to be use for emergency use only. Who used that fuel I have no idea, I just hope to was someone who needed the fuel and not just wanted it.

I think that the people that commit themselves to do that trip are honest enough to not steal fuel.

I dont think anyone would be prepared to steal the fuel. Surely if you would be out that far you would not rely on the off-chance that there would be fuel there.

Even if you were on the run from the law, surely you would choose an alternate escape route (from where??)

Garry, the people who pass this way I would not imagine taking the fuel. And if they did, covering their tracks would be a great task - very risky choice I think.

Also consider the implications if someone got stuck, and into trouble as a consequence of someone stealing the fuel - the charge laid against the perpetrator would be more great than theft.

Thanks for that - I am considering doing the CSR within a couple of years and while I have the capability of carrying enough 44 gal drums in my landie 101 to do the trip I am also looking at options. I appreciate that I am a novice in this area - but given the risks of not having fuel in such a location, I would have thought the risk of relyin g on the honesty of others was too great - however it is obviously not such an issue.

Thanks for the comments.

Thank you for your information, I will make a copy.

I should be in Newman around the middle of September, if everything goes to plan, and I will give you a call then.
