Beryl Beemer's 1st $A30+ fuel fill up
Like night follows day, it is just another one of those things that you can guarantee is gonna happen...
Beryl Beemer's first fuel refill that exceeded the $A30 mark..... $31:14 in fact.
I vaguely remember when Beryl exceeded the $A20 and here we are pressing forward through another pioneering milestone...hmmmm wonder how many crotch rocket pilots get to spend more than $A30 on a fuel refill??
The fuel warning light had been on for a day or two but only nipping back an forth to the tennis courts and such like...at refill, 368kms on the clock.
20.5litres of fuel was dumped into Beryl's innards, so I had say another 3 litres still there sloshing around....the fuel guage was now starting to get into the red zone....
Given that Beryl is mostly doing the commute trip to work, I am probaly getting the 6 litres/100km...so say 50kms left in the tank...(418km cant be bad doing commute work). (just changed Beryl's battery so BC setting got zapped off)
$A1.519 per litre for the 98octane stuff....yeah I know I dont need to put the 98 stuff in Beryl but you gotta treat the oldies to a bit of luxury, and as Beryl is creeping up toward the 200,000kms, heyyy why not?
Probably Chris has already exceeded this $30 barrier when he was being gouged on his trip???
