What is it costing you at the moment?

Our diesel is up to 1.00 and was 1.20 a litre last year. At the moment costing roughly 60 to fill a tank. Thats got to be around $100 US dollars for conversion.

Not sure about diesel, but gas is creeping up now in the U.S. I filled up at $2.33/gallon for 91 octane here in Southern California a couple of days ago.

where did you find gas for $2.33 down here and what brand is it? the cheapest i've seen is $2.4x.


full tank of gas runs about $30-35 and gets me about 270 miles. while a full thank of gas may be cheaper for us diesel does get better mileage. i think the proper way of figuring out expenses would be calculating cost per mile or kilometer.

How much does a litre cost over there or is it priced in gallons?

Over here in Dubai, it's around $1.83 per gallon for 98octane. 98 octane is usually equivalent to 95 octane of US. It's pretty bad in UAE compared to other Gulf states. It's under 1$ per gallon in Saudia Arabia
