I've been wondering this for a while. I fully support your views and It
wouldn't be the first time this approach to fuel sales have been taken.
Sadly for me it would mean going to a Petrol Station in the 101 as no one
else would recognise me or any of the other vehicles... and putting £5 in
the 101 would just about cover the trip there and back. :0)
I'm actually in a silly position that since before my tour of Europe in
July/August I filled the Rangie with diesel and leftit with Ma and Pa as
they were Baby sitting our dog. They didn't use the car, it's still got the
same tank of fuel in and It goes (hopefully if the friggin DVLA get there
act together!) as a trade in next week. ICBA to start syphoning fuel out and
it's little use anyway as I don't have another diesel motor. More to the
frustration the New motor will no doubt be dry. But hey thats life!!!!
Then again ... I do have a diesel motor come to think of it... but I don't
think the Gaffer would be too impressed with a 1954 Fergie parked in the
back yard :0)
My concern is that if fuel protests do go ahead, if we do get panic buying
of everything else and it does continue for any length of time we could well
end up seeing the breakdown of civisation in the UK... though fortunately in
our case we don't have quite so many guns dotted around. There is a very
very fine line between Civilisation and every man for himself.
During the last fuel protest I was given a voucher for fuel (still had to
pay mind!) as I'm a member of the Emergency services. Never used it as it
was a storm in a tea cup. I am fortuante though that I don't have to comute
very far and if push come to shove is a real emergency could walk the 5
miles. My Dad has a petrol voucher from the war which he is keeping safe
