Thanks, I see!

In France we have a different system : farmers are paying the taxes like anyone, but they can ask for a refund for the diesel they used in their farm...

On Spain there are 3 types of diesel

A for cars and trucks at 0.94€/l
B for farmers at 0.70€/l
C for house heat at 0.80€/l

The 2nd and the 3 are cheaper than the 1st, and if you fill your car/truck with B type and police stops you you will have to pay a huge bill.
Types B and C also have one "ink" to allow police to know better if you are cheating.

Does the Police often check the colour of the diesel in your fuel tank?

It looks the ink not only makes the diesel for farmer to have different color, also increases smoke amount, about controls, no idea, never seen one.

The police here do pull vehicles over to check they are not using red diesel in cars.

Gasoline, to burn more efficiently, requires some additives. Ethanol is just a green option to that. In the past, they used additives with lead and other nasty stuff.

I'm under the impression the price gap between highway and non-highway fuel price in Netherlands has never been higher for last 5 years.

Well, you do see a trend where motorway service areas offer discounts on fuel. Until a few years ago, MSA's always had the 'national average suggested price' which is in reality the highest price for fuel. Nowadays it's not uncommon to see discounts up to 10 cents per liter.

Structure of fuel price in Serbia. "Rafinerijska proizvodna cena" is the price before taxes.

Do you mean their "regular" price is normally higher than off-motorway stations, but they also offer discounts off of it?

How common in Europe are frequent-customer deals, where you get a card from your neighborhood Sunoco/APlus and when you buy certain items in the store you earn a discount of X cents per gallon (or liter) on your next fill-up?

^ I have seen something similar in Uk, but never in Romania or Austria.

There is no standard regulated price for fuel in the UK, the tastes depend on the level of local competition, costs of running filling stations in different locations and distribution costs which are higher to remote areas. So you tend to get highest prices at motorway service areas where costs are high and there are no easy alternatives for many drivers, plus in city centre locations or remote rural locations where there isn't much competition. Cheapest prices will tend to be at supermarkets in mid sized towns or suburbs of larger cities.

It's pretty common here, I've been getting vouchers in the mail all year long from Sainsbury's supermarket, they vary but generally it's along the lines of spend 60 in store next week using your loyalty card and get a voucher for 0.06 to 0.10 per litre off fuel. Probably 30-40% of my fuel purchases this year have had that kind of discount, and their prices are usually the joint cheapest in town anyway before the discount.

I think Belgium still has official 'maximum prices' set by some government agency.

German fuel stations often change their prices multiple times during the day, apparently it can be quite a bit cheaper to refuel during the afternoon instead of during the morning rush hour. Dutch fuel stations usually change daily or less.

That seems to be the case: you occasionally see news items that the price of EuroWhatever will be X starting the next day.

I must have reported it on this thread, although God knows when it was, that one day at my lunch hour (I work very close to my apartment...) I did an errand that took me past my Friendly Neighborhood Sunoco. The price was several cents a gallon lower than it had been in the morning rush...and then was right back up by evening.

Of course, now that the price display is electronic rather than consisting of physical number panels that need to be changed by hand by someone on a ladder....

Today I gassed up my Camry for $1.75 a gallon for unleaded plus which is now the 10% ethanol blend.

Prices here are ranging from $1.74 to $1.83 a gallon for the 10% ethanol blend.

At such price you need to switch Camry for a 427 Corvette or 560 Mercedes
