Bruce,

I took on a couple of thousand litres on Friday at the RMYC and paid 113.00 a litre with the members discount. I am not sure if the discount cuts in after 500 or 1,000 litres ? Cheapest Fuel I have ever placed in this vessel. Last year in Tassie I was getting it for 1.26 litre and I thought that was great at the time !!!

cheers Chris D Liberty

Chris, Quantity might explain it, we took only 583L, maybe the discount increases at some point, or perhaps the base price comes down. I really don`t know, but it was still a lot cheaper than previously.

We've been paying $1.70-$1.80 per gallon, although price is creeping back toward $1.90 per gallon. We will be purchasing some this week in Jamaica at $3.20 or so a gallon which is low for the area.

We can only dream of such prices. Right now I`m seeing diesel at $1.10 /L at the local servo*, that`s cheap here.
(*Filling station/Service station= "servo".)

Actually we were paying close to that not all that long ago. 18 months or so ago.

Yesterday I bought diesel, at a servo, for the car, lowest price ever on the North Shore of Sydney(though almost certainly cheaper out west)for $107.9/L. At a 7/11 Store,they sell cheaper because they work(?ed) their overseas student staff 40 hours while paying them for 20 hours)

In a long fuel line?

Our fuel source is currently showing diesel at $1.90. We paid $1.71 based on our discounted rate on Friday. The $1.75 at a marina is an incredible deal. Current Florida rates are $1.76 to $3.96.

Bundaberg was $1.14 per litre on the 8th of May. Good enough value to top up the tanks!

Not so good when compared to the US prices above. I understand 1 US gal = 4L, so $1.75 per gal = ~ 44cents per litre. Compared to $1.14/L. Also remember it was no time ago we were paying ~ $1.50/L. Make you weep, wouldn't it..?

$2.22 on the Erie Canal. Not bad, although last we paid at home was $1.79, but we're told that is $1.89 now.

Which Marina? Open to the public? I am currently at Sucia Island in the San Juans and was considering topping off at Roche Harbor before heading over to Sidney.

A few weeks ago it was $2.25USD in Neah Bay. I took on 308 gallons for the run between Astoria OR and Neah Bay WA in 13 hours (190 miles)

Just phoned North Saanich Marina as Van Isle Marina switchboard is closed now and the current price at NSM is 96.9 cents a litre or $3.67 a US gallon, this is in Canadian funds. Hope this helps as I have no idea what the price is in Roche Harbor or how much the US dollar is worth, hope this helps............

Fueled up the end of last month at Top Rack in Norfolk, VA @ $1.60 per gallon. A quick check shows them up to $1.70 per gallon now. Still a great price!

$1.89 US per US gallon at Semiahmoo Marina this afternoon. ($1.99 advertised price, but a 10 cent discount for 200 gallons.) Quick calculation... 1.89 USD / USG * 0.264 USG / L * 1.29 CAD / USD = $0.64 CAD per liter.
