    Pretty simplistic report by the AA in comparing the two fuels. Maybe if they used their analytical brain they would come up with a different answer. A barrel of oil can be refined into roughly 40% petrol and 20% diesel. Supply is restricted and demand is high. In the winter months demand is compounded by the requirement for heating oil. Look at how many refineries have been for sale in the UK over the last few years too and no-one wants to invest £500m for a hydrocracker to refine more diesel.

    LPG is 64.9p/litre that £800 conversion paid for its self in 6 months! My 1.6 Astra does a diesel equivalent of 75mpg and that's not driving carefully.

    Northern Ireland is being ripped off? Imagine that. Interesting to see London being the cheaper for fuel though, that is a surprise.
