    We must be a bit cheaper here Redeye. That would cost $121 here today.

    I think the prices are up to where they were before they dropped the excise.

    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    And more pain when they put the excise tax back to normal which is 22c extra so I think from sept oct they way prices have remained high not going to be easy.

    I’ve seen guys in every state jumping on this band wagon. Am I missing something…???

    Interesting that diesel is cheaper than petrol as it should be as it is less refined. Dunno why diesel has to be dearer in Australia.

    Its's one thing to do a good deed, but to put it on social media is just "PUMPING UP YOUR OWN TYRES". They're just out for the advertising. I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty sure you all have some clients that you'll do the job very cheaply, or stuff for free and don't mention it to nobody.
