    Whats the longest time you have queued for petrol this last week or so?

    Just to see who the winner is.............

    I last put petrol in my car on 22 August (when I last visited the parentals). I haven't ventured to a petrol station since as I haven't needed to.

    However, I will need to drive HWMBO in a couple of weeks' time so I'm hoping this nonsense has calmed down by then or else I won't be getting to St Neots and back.

      Also 0 minutes. Filled up last night - 48 litres into a 50 litre tank, so panic buying but out of necessity rather than hoarding...

      Queues around here seem to be rapidly ending, most places have half a dozen in the queue at the most, little worse than normal rush hour.
      Blog? What blog...?

        0 minutes. Refused to be part of the problem. I will probably need to top up early next week, so hopefully the selfish idiots have had their fun by then.

        (Just a theory, but if they did a survey, I wonder if there would be a strong correlation with the panic buys and the anti-vaxxers/trump supporters)

          I thought my main mower was almost out, and knew my 20l Jerry can was almost empty, so i was about to go out to fill up the can (and look like a panic-buying Tory), but then remembered I had an old 5l plastic can. It was half full, and turns out my mower probably had about 8l in it. Topped the mower up, made up a litre of 2 stroke for the chain saws, etc, and now the cans are empty.
          The mower uses about 4 litres for a cut, so I've got another week before I need to fill. Will throw the can into the car just in case.

            0, but I did get lucky as I did a 250 mile round trip on Saturday but fortunately had a full tank before it all kicked off

              0 minutes. For some reason the two nearest us have had no queues and if you go odd hours it's fine. The one nearer town has had a short queue but nothing major.

                0 for me as well (electric) - so a combined zero minutes queue time thus far - big up

                  about 10 minutes up north.

                  Blooming queues everywhere down here but have half a tank.

                    Very strange you've posted the dumbest response on your own thread.
