Filling the tank

It is almost worth carrying five gallon cans to the boat.* The gas station price for Diesel is any where from .25-.45 cents less than the marina price.* Off road here in NC is*even cheaper.* Five Jerry cans*at $2.50 a can savings*comes to a*$12.50 savings or three gallons for free.

RE: Filling the tank

Everyone can thank me as the news says that fuek prices MAY start coming down as much as $.50 by summer. That's because we just put 200 gallons ($700) into Skinny Dippin' when we were at the Osprey Marina a few weeks ago.

You're welcome.

RE: Filling the tank

Thanks, Gonzo!! At $3.50/gal, you're still beating our California prices by $0.50 or more.

RE: Filling the tank

My problem is that I now have about three years of fuel onboard. So much for the tank cleaning this season.
