$1.84 per gallon!

Wow, I never expected to see this. I'm filling up now for $1.84 per gal, plus sales tax. This is at Covich in Ballard, Seattle. Needless to say, I'm squeezing in every gallon that I can.

Today prices are crazy!

I filled my tanks not that long ago but plan to top off when I get to Savannah next weekend. As long as prices stay low, I'll be happy to have full tanks. Just a bit longer runs for the polisher pump.

if your tanks are empty you can you get a truck to come out? It's better to leave the tanks full anyway right?

I sometimes take a lunchtime walk at the Locks in Seattle and today had the pleasure of seeing Twisted Tree taking Tanglewood through the small lock for some sea trials. Had a nice conversation. Tried to take some shots with the phone but it was stuck on video. Will try to upload 2 short videos. Good looking boat!

Outstanding!!!! I looked at our fuel logs. On May 22, 2008, Lake Union, we paid $4.78/gallon (tax included) and that was after calling every fuel dock on Lake Union and Ballard. That was for 400 plus gallons.

Well, I should have learned by now that when I can't do something on the iPhone, all I need to do is ask my 15 year old daughter. She was amazed I did not know how to do a "scrren shot" from a video. So, hopefully here are a few screen shots of Twisted Tree and MV Tanglewood heading through the locks in Seattle!

I think I paid $3.80/gal in Anacortes at "Krogin" on or about Sept 20, 2014.

Sigh!

Diesel price

Sadly I had to pay $5 a galloon down in Sint Maarten last year.

Any idea what happened to marinefuel.com ? I've not had any luck accessing the site. I go back to the Caribbean in the spring and need to draw a serious amount of fuel. I was hoping to get the latest fuel prices of there site.

Great pictures, THD - thanks and nice chatting with you. The Seatrials were a success, but Simrad still has their work cut to for them. Either way, it was nice to get on on the water.

Twisted, that price is hard to believe if for price of diesel. Diesel here costs about a dollar more per gallon than gasoline.

I know. I called them back again to confirm because I didn't believe it. Then I went over and now have 1689 gal of it in my belly, or should I say the boat's belly.

And here I'm limited to 300-or-so gallon capacity (but good for 1000 to 1400 nm.).

Quantity does matters. I told them I would buy 1500 gal and that I'd pay by check, not credit card. That got the price. I don't know where the volume price breaks are, nor how much they add for credit cards. The other big place down the cove (Ballard Oil) was $2.27 for the same quantity and cash deal.

Wow, was that with cash or credit? They will give a few extra pennies with cash at Covich as well.
