Its not cheaper when you consider you have paid an extra $5k to have a diesel engine.Guess most of members don't care much about diesel prices, but you should. It will hit you on grocery prices, household items and building costs. The difference to unleaded is approaching 30 cents per litre, diesel supposed to be cheaper to make.
THAT WAS A QUICK FIND.Due to the rediculous disparity between petrol and diesel fuel I have written two letters off to the ACCC and the Minister for the the Environment. The reason I wrote to the minister was related to the push for diesel cars because they are now more environmentally friendly than petrol engines.
I will try and find the response letters I got from them. One of the responses was to keep the price up to discourage older diesels. Therefore I guess, it will always cost more. However, I can still do a return trip to Melb. and back (600klm) cheaper than in my Falcon, and its pretty good on fuel economy.
It is scary and something we will need to get conditioned too.Filled up the old 300C with petrol yesterday and it is the first time I have cracked the tonne, $104 to be exact :worried: :worried: .
