G'day lonewolf that garage is actually closed down and fenced off scratch Their prices must have been a bit high. The last fuel we got was $1.47.9 for Diesel was about 4cents cheaper than it was in Vic. Yes hate to see how much it is along the Nullarbor. We will find out soon hey!!

Thanks Dave will do...

Yes Ash we will try our best...

Cheers.

Mike. cheers

I'm glad you got away safely and that you both have a good trip over there. If you can keep us informed of the fuel cost while your there mate that would be great for others heading over a little later. With the price of gold dropping right now, you will have to find about 8 to 10oz's just to cover the fuel cost there and back Shocked Cheers and have fun.

We had a bit of a head wind today, but not to bad. Thanks again for the replies and well wishes. Probably have no service for the next day or so, but will log on when we do. Very Happy

G'day All well we hit Norseman today around lunch time we drove around the corner to check the other Garages. Alas they were all the same price today at $1.53.4/lt for diesel. Which is pretty good compared to the last lot of places we stopped at. Took a couple of pics yesterday of The Great Bight. Sorry about my finger over the last one.
