Mt Isa diesel is 126 at Shell but with a docket and spending $5 in the shop is $1.20.

Neumanns is also cheap but not certain where it is. Just ask someone. The best shell is just on the edge of town at the truck stop western side (opposite side to Big 4)

We're in the process of coming back the way you're proposing and the petrol prices we came across are as follows (in cents):-

18/05/10 Erldunda Shell 173.0
20/05/10 Ayers Rock Mobil 161.0
22/05/10 Kings Canyon Mobil 172.0
23/05/10 Erldunda Shell 171.0
24/05/10 Alice Springs W/Cal 143.9
27/05/10 Alice Springs W/Cal 142.9
31/05/10 Alice Springs W/Cal 143.9
1/06/10 Barrow Ck BP 176.8
2/06/10 Tennant Ck BP 149.5
2/06/10 Barkly H/stead Caltex 179.9
3/06/10 Camooweal BP 171.9
4/06/10 Mt Isa W/Cal 125.7
5/06/10 Cloncurry W/Cal 140.9

* There's no fuel at the Devil's Marbles
* 'W/Cal' is Woolworths/Caltex and would have been 4 cents off normal price with a Woolies docket.
* Both Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon are owned by the same company ('Voyages') and want an extra 1% on anything paid by credit card, including fuel.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Chris. I need those numbers as well.

At $1.40 / litre it is $415 to fill up my tow truck so any help is appreciated.

Your numbers allow me to by pass a fill up at Barley Homestead and Camooweal as I can cover the 656.7 kilometers from Shell at Mt Isa to Tennant Creek. By making sure I fill in Mt Isa at $1.19.9 (using my 6 cent a litre shell docket), I save 60 cents a litre. Over the 297 litres I would need to buy, makes fuel $178.20 cheaper.

Because Tennant Creek is $1.49 however, perhaps I just save 30 cents a litre so I just save $89.10.

Whichever way you look at it, I would rather the money in my pocket.

Sorry, but we got to Alice from Brisbane via Broken Hill, Adelaide and the Eyre Peninsula so have no idea about Camerons Cnr or Poeppel's. :-(

You're right about the fuel maths! The only reason we had to refuel at Barkly was that we've been pushing a 20~40kph headwind all the way east from Tennant Creek and I didn't want to try running out of go-juice short of the Isa. The wind's still blowing here at Winton ($1.40.9 today) but hopefully it'll ease off soon.

While towing, we haven't managed any better than 25lt/100km or about 11mpg since Tennant Ck, even sitting on 85kph. :-(

Diesel price at Birdsville on 28/5/10 was $1.60/litre and $1.84/litre at Innamincka on 1/6/10
Interestingly on 30/5/10 diesel at Maree was 35 cents per litre dearer than Lyndhurst!! Work that one out.
