Optimax (98RON) Shortage (NSW)

I dont kow if this has already been brought up on here, but over the last three weeks around my travels (Blacktown, Northmead, Pennant Hills, Berowra, Revesby) no bloody Shell Servo has Optimax at the pump...anyone else finding this and does anyone know what the deal is (just incase its just not my mind playing tricks on me)

Re: Optimax (98RON) Shortage (NSW)

Shells all over Sydney having being running out of fuel for the last month or two. Someone on here explained why I can't remember something to do with having issues processing the crude I think but they said they expected them to fix it soonish. It seems not to be as bad as it was a little while back tho.

According to someone who works for Shell in Canberra down here something at the Sydney refinery has broke therefore there wont be any Optimax or LRP for 2 weeks..

Re: Optimax (98RON) Shortage (NSW)

Tis not just optimax....
Have noticed for last 6-7 weeks that shells have been running out of ALL unleaded / opti / LRP (mainly unleaded & opti though) & have been left high & dry for 3-4 days or so. This is DEFINITELY an issue for those that use a fleet vehicle meaning that shell are the sole fuel supplier. Hope they sort it out sooner rather then later.
