I caved. I still had an eighth of a tank left when I filled up. I figure this could have got me to at least Thursday, but fuel prices lured me to an early top-up. Regular unleaded is 85¢ per litre for goodness sakes! Regular diesel cost me just $1.099 per litre and I didn’t want to risk missing out on that deal. I haven’t paid so little since I bought the car in August of 2007.
