    I was interested in Fuel Prices ATM in the States, particularly Diesel. Unleaded Petrol (Gas....) is $1.45 per litre, Diesel is about $1.35 per litre. As the Yanmars sip on next to nothing they are extremely cheap to run. We also have LPG here (Liquid Petroleum Gas) which is about 60 cents per litre. I know you guys have a few types of Diesel too so whats its price difference? Maybe a few other parts of the world could also throw their prices in too, mine are from Melbourne Australia.

    Now i see why every one runs deisel in foreign countries, its cheaper!! Ours use to be cheaper. But now there is so many blends of gas and the deisel is Ultra low sulpher, and the gap seems to be wider than when i was driving a deisel mercedees 10 yrs ago.

    Neat, here's more than you ever wanted to know.
    GasBuddy.com - Find Low Gas Prices in the USA and Canada
    You can dig into that site and see maps showing individual station prices in any community.

    Oops I see Fordman just posted that.


    For me, an hour north of San Francisco: Regular $3.90/gallon locally (farm community), $3.60 if I drive a half hour to an urban discount store. Diesel more - same price as top grade premium gas. Off-road diesel (no road tax) is about the same as regular gas.

    I'm amazed how little fuel these burn. A 20 gallon purchase lasts me for months.
