There is no shortage of fuel the only stations that are dry are the 1s being bled dry now most people put a few quid in but there all flustered so there putting full tanks in so 50plus rather than a fiver so it's just keeping up with demand
True, I was going to fill up anyway, it's all those who put a fiver in here and there who are hoarding... fckers.
I've got access to works cars & vans if it get really bad and they are always kept full lol

Indeed.
I was talking to one of the ladies at the local Morrisons station, she was fuming that someone had sat in the queues, and then complained about it loudly when they came to pay....for £5.26 of fuel.

Well, that's me told then.
I just wanted to flag it, in case anyone was sucking on fumes and wanted to preserve what they had in case of Ampe longed fuel drought.

As everyone appears to be fully fuelled, and I've got a nearly full LPG, 60miles of super in the tank and 340milesnof diesel in the other car, we are still on.

I've never done a cruise or meet before, so be gentle😁
See you @ Lidl @Gwilo365 !

Suggestion, if you're running low, wait until later tonight and think of the last fuel station you'd use. Chances are they'll be fine. It's the supermarkets and main stations that are being hardest hit today.

I'm actually ok, no run on LPG round here. Was just a thought for those trekking from further afield.
I'm hopeful the nonsense will subside by next week as more daily mail inspired scaremongering.

It's some charity race. Shut between 11-1pm, so should be all clear by time we are meeting up.
16:15 at Lidl squires gate. At least, I won't get there before that, but by all means 1600 if that's when you get there.

Plan, in my head anyway, was meet up for a chat/ogle at each others vans if nice.
Then down the prom to NOTORIANNIS ice cream. Then carry on up to Mary's Shell for the beach for a bit. After thats it's a free for all.

Thanks Joe @Gwilo365 .

Had a busy morning.. Elgrand collected and made up a few LPG tanks to get ahead a bit for next week's LPG conversions. But will have a chat with the others, not sure if we're coming yet.
