For those that may be interested, just sharing the current prices at the roadhouses we stopped at across the Nullarbor this week.

Penong 141.9
Nullarbor 191.9
Nundroo 147.9
Border Village 182.3
Mundrabilla 169.0
Madura 182.9
Caiguna 182.9
Cocklebiddy 181.9
Balladonia 177.1
Norseman 150.0

We also did the Nullarbor Links golf course - it was a real buzz (except when the rain wouldn't stop and we sunk down in mud to our ankles!) Seriously, it was all fun.

Sorry, yes they were diesel prices. In most cases more for unleaded.

hi
well there not really that bad on the nulla considering the distance the fuel has to be taken
we are paying here in bunbury for diesel 141.9 w/worths
and all the others 142.9 diesel
busselton 137.9 w/worths diesel
ulp prices for both towns are the same 134.7 ulp
i think ! in fact i know we are being ripped off
w.wths in busso keep their diesel price down as they are trying hard to break the backs of the independant suppliers but havent succeeded yet
such is life cheers

If you think you are being ripped off come to Perth. Just bought diesel at the woolworths: list price 143.9 cents a litre before the discount. So they can transport it hundreds of kilometres and sell it cheaper. makes sense ... a bit like their milk pricing!

hi rocco2010

dont know where your situated in the perth area
but when i go up there i drop off the freeway at - berrigan dr - and you have a choice of 2 servo's woolworths and united half a k apart
and they are usually the cheapest in south metro area

its only a 3km turn around to get back onto the freeway and cheap fuel

if i dont know the prices before i get there i cruise past the united on the right and look at prices and then turn into the w/worths site on left corner of south st and berrigan dr then make a decision either fill at w/w's or go back to
united as its on the way back to freeway and
also a supermarket and pie shop/ lotto etc there as well and toilets
so i have been buying fuel at one or the other for for ages now

also worth noting can park a c/van/camper trailer
as well at shopping center
cheers barry

Thanks Barry


I am not THAT far from there but I'd have to have the ute running on empty and the savings would need to be better than 5c a litre to make it worthwhile as regular stop. Might be different if you are dropping 150l plus into a Prado!

I'll certainly bear it in mind though when heading south.

Cheers

Hi i'machocoholic,

Thanks for that. We're off across the Nullarbor in about 3 weeks - good to see where (and where not) to plan to refuel.

Cheers,
Chris

Thank heavens we are about to fit a long range tank.

That will give us more than 2000Kms on reasonable roads and highways. And up to 1400 kms in rough dirt to hard sand.

And around 100kg extra weight just to avoid supporting small isolated fuel stops which may not be there next time you pass that way.

Not there to avoid fuel stops. Its there to increase the distance for places like the deserts and especially the CSR. I refuse to carry fuel either in the car, one the rear where it can be hit from behind or on top. So a bigger fuel tank was ideal for us.

The 100kg is not a problem as we never tow. Been there and done that and never going back. For us (maybe not for others) it was too restrictive.

In 2005 coming back from an Army reunion in Perth it was amusing getting to the roadhouse at Border Town and their computer was down. No fuel for anyone. There were at least 20 vehicles waiting the 5 hours for the tech to arrive from Adelaide. We were in the Nissan Maxima then. No long range tank but just lucky to have filled up previously. That I don't want again.

Full tank in Birdsville and when you go through the Simpson and get to Mt Hart its flooded. With standard tank/s, what do you do? Wait. We can carry on. That's why.
