How To Save Petrol

The British Solution to Save Petrol

Brown wants us to cut the amount of petrol we use......

The best way to stop using so much petrol is to deport 3 million illegal immigrants!

That would be 3 million less people using our petrol. The price of petrol would come down.....

Bring our troops home from Iraq to guard the Channel...

When they catch an illegal immigrant crossing the Channel, hand him a canteen, rifle and some ammo and ship him to Iraq ....
Tell him if he wants to come to Britain then he must serve a tour in the military....
Give him a soldier's pay while he's there and tax him on it.....

After his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defended this country....
He will also be registered to be taxed and be a legal resident..... .

This option will probably deter illegal immigration and provide a solution for the troops in Iraq and the aliens trying to make a better life for themselves.. .

If they refuse to serve, ship them to Iraq anyway, without the canteen, rifle or ammo......
Problem solved......

Go play outside, boy. Don't come back 'till supper.
I have a good idea how we could save some 02.......Idiot.

I got this link at work a while ago, which may help.


I don't know what you guys are paying for petrol.... but here in Durban
we are also paying higher, up to R7.35 per litre. But my line of work is
in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some tricks to get more
of your money's worth for every litre.

Here at the Marian Hill Pipeline where I work in Durban, we deliver
about 4 million litres in a 24-hour period thru the pipeline.
One day is diesel the next day is jet fuel, and petrol, LRP and
Unleaded. We have 34-storage tanks here with a total capacity of
16,800,000 litres.

Only buy or fill up your car or bakkie in the early morning when the
ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations
have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the
more dense the fuel, when it gets warmer petrol expands, so buying in
the afternoon or in the evening....your litre is not exactly a litre. In
the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the
petrol, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays
an important role. A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for
this business. But the service stations do not have temperature
compensation at the pumps.

One of the most important tips is to fill up when your tank is HALF
FULL. The reason for this is, the more fuel you have in your tank the
less air occupying its empty space. petrol evaporates faster than you
can imagine. Petroleum storage tanks have an internal floating roof.
This roof serves as zero clearance between the petrol and the atmosphere, so
it minimizes the evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where I
work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every
litre is actually the exact amount.

Another reminder, if there is a fuel truck pumping into the storage
tanks when you stop to buy, DO NOT fill up--most likely the
petrol/diesel is being stirred up as the fuel is being delivered, and
you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.

Hope this will help you get the most value for your money.

Hey Jest if that was pointed at me why don't you go and inster your face in a meat grinder there by saving us all the waste of skin you so obviously are.

Fortunately, nobody else requires my skin, thus meaning that my using it is not a waste. I think evens a burns victim would turn mine down in favour of the usual pig skin.
Drive Less!!!!
Stop these chavvy barstewards driving around in those annoying little M/N reg cars that wouldn't pass an MoT in a month of Sundays - you know the one's, the one's that you either hear the exhaust 5 minutes before you see the car or hear thump, thump, thump, thump,thump from the stereo as they drive around aimlessly at night thinking they are cool. Well you're not cool and when I find that little tw@t who keeps driving past my house at 0100hrs waking the whole road up I'm going to fill his exhaust up with expanding foam and beat him around the head with his speakers!!!!!!!!!!
