I can easily switch between drinking beer in pints but wine in ml, weighing myself in stones but my food in grams, and driving 3 miles to buy 30 litres of petrol, but I will never understand WTF a temperature in Fahrenheit means
You could tell me excitedly that it’s 73F outside and I would have zero idea if there’s a snowstorm or a heatwave
If one in five Kiwis opt to work from home once a week, we’d prevent 84,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere. That’s equivalent to taking 35,000 cars off the road. If 20 per cent cut their journeys from five to four days a week, they’d save 34.6m litres of petrol i.stuff.co.nz/environment…

Riot was planned. Petrol bombs & stones were used in destruction of property. Over 300 vehicles were burnt. We have suspects but can only confirm after investigation.

Men chain-smoking in a Portuguese petrol station last night. We told the clerk, who said “yeah, this is where they like to hang out. We call the police about 3 times a day but they do nothing”.
Rant: Caught petrol bunk guys trying to cheat
The guy in front of me filled petrol for rs 200.
There were two attendants at that pump. One guys asked me how much I want I said full tank. As soon as the guy in front moved I put my bike there and opened the cap. The second guy came at the front of the bike and was trying to talk about the bike's number plate / indicators. I didn't pay attention as I was focused on the pump. The first guy already put the dispenser in the tank and waiting. My guess is that he was waiting for the first guy to distract me. I saw at the pump it showed 200 and looked at the first guy and asked him to zero it.
I got cheated once earlier with similar tactics. Now, all my focus is on the pump.
EDIT:Registered an online complaint as mentioned in one of the comments.
EDIT: The HP Tumkur area person called now. He's going for an investigation today. He mentioned that he'll check the cctv footage and take action on the culprit.

This is what Netflix server look like. For storage, the hard drive tech is used the most. They are massively huge and store 100TB of data each. Each server handles 10 to 20 thousand streams at once. Also 6 hours of streaming Netflix is equivalent to burning one litre of petrol.
Needing to get petrol and it's 2 days before your MOT test, so you just put £10 worth of fuel in just in case your car needs scrapped.
Why is the petrol prices still going up ?
I understand that the petrol prices were skyrocketing to prevent losses, but now that economic activities have resumed and everything's kinda became normal why is the prices still increasing ? Won't the price rise have effects on food and items for daily use thereby affecting the poor more ? Didn't the center start reducing losses ?
P.s : I also remember an India when a price rise of even 50 paisa resulted in multiple hartals, all india bandhs etc. But now no one cares xD

Going to petrol station for petrol and then queuing for 20 mins because someone’s done their big shop
This was self defence, don’t believe the main stream media painting the kid negatively. He was charged an attack by mob whilst he was carying. One attacked him with a petrol bomb - then chased him down - another attacks with skateboard as he falls. The third tried to pull a gun on him to kill him.
Petrol prices up 40c overnight at my local 7-eleven. Lock those prices in while you can!
Up from $1.05/L to $1.45 for 91, glad I fuelled up yesterday
25 minutes into a ride this evening, I stopped for gas. I don't even have a good excuse or explanation for what happened, but the nozzle slipped, and gas sprayed all over my hair face and shirt.
So I got to turn around and ride home and hop in the shower. Pretty pissed at myself, but also embarrassed... so I figured I'd put myself on blast on reddit.
Anyone have any similar stories to share? I still smell like gas, and could use a laugh.

Hey all. I bought a 2015 24kw leaf a year ago and haven't done any maintenance on it at all. I used to check oil level, brake fluid, battery fluid, steering fluid, radiator level etc on a petrol car but aren't sure what I should be doing to make sure my leaf is in optimum condition. Ideas please :c)
TIL a few grams of petrol in a petroleum burner can stop you from burning the other 19.9 kg of ethanol thats loaded into it.
Petrol burners should really be flex fuel!!!

Suicidal boy who turns into a petrol / gasoline pump
I read this in the late 80's/ early 90's. Pretty certain it was a kids book, not a satrical adults book. It was a short illustrated book about a boy who is bullied and loves gasoline pumps. He does not like his life so stands by the road with 2 fingers in his ear with the hope of turning into a gasoline pump (which happens slowly from the feet up). Weird stuff happens like some bullies force him to eat an abacus. At the end when he is a gas pump, his parents not recognising him use him to get some petrol and say how much their son would have admired this gas pump, and he gives them free petrol and spits out fre money.
I really want to see what else the author has written.

Since the media is only discussing Congress, I want to know how are people ok with the fact that India is charging highest taxes on petrol and diesel. I took a diesel car two years back to save money and now diesel is more expensive than petrol.
Show AusFinance: I created a cheap petrol finder site
So with corona keeping me nice and housebound, I decided to create a new fuel finder site called Petrol Buddy.
Unlike petrol spy, it is not riddled with ads, and I think it has a really good user experience compared to anything else out there. It's a totally free service, and really was created so I could try out some new web ideas.
The motivation for me really was to answer the question: "where's the cheapest fuel near me?". It seems like there are no sites out there that can easily and quickly just show you where that station is.
Let me know what you think!
Chuck us a like on facebook as well if you feel like it :).
Edit 1: The site is currently down for maintenance due to the amount of traffic I have had! Sorry for the delay guys, it should hopefully be back up by the end of the day!
Edit 2: NSW prices are back online, I am working on getting WA back up this afternoon. :).
Edit 3: WA and QLD price

Help out a petrol head
Do we have a thread dedicated to modifications for cars/motorcycles in India? Wondering how the performance modification scene is in India, serious stuff like forced induction and anything under the sky that helps bump the HP. P.S., before you want to lecture me about warranty and mileage, I am aware of whatI will end up with. Point me to the right subreddit.
A Petrol-Electric Power Plant was a cool idea, didn’t work though.
How efficient are modern petrol engines
Hi everyone, looking to buy a new car and I've seen a Skoda rapid 2016 plate with a 1.2 tsi engine. From what I can gather these are pretty decent engines but wondering on the motorway mpg if anyone has any experience with them. I drive 15 miles each on a dual carriageway to work 5 days a week and then once a month do a 50 mile trip each to a second job. My last car was a 1.6l diesel estate which was fantastic on fuel efficiency and I think a diesel is probably better for my useage but wouldn't mind going for a petrol if it wasn't too much worse.
I know these turbo charged petrol engines have fantastic mpg figures published by the manufacturer but are definitely false.
I just bought a mondeo 2009 for 3000 after noticing a smell of petrol I checked and the fuel line has a leak where it’s spraying petrol from do I have any grounds as I bought this privately, apparently I can only get the part from fords and being a bank holiday Tuesday is the earliest when I work

Škoda Octavia petrol
Been looking at petrol cars and wanted to get some feedback about Skoda Octavia 2010-2012 petrol engines as looking to get a car £2.5 - 4k
The engines that i see the most are
- 1.2 TSI (potentially too small?)
- 1.4 TSI (seems optimal)
- 1.6 MPI (not as good as TSI?)
- 1.8 TSI (too thirsty?)
As it's for a potential city family car, MPG and engine reliability are most important. Wouldn't be racing it anywhere.
I presume it would be better to take a bigger engine for the estate.
Looking at some manuals and I have seen that timing belt should be changed every 5 years or 112k miles, is that correct?
Currently debating to buy Skoda Octavia or Toyota Avensis 1.6 or 1.8 petrol. Either as Estate or Hatch/saloon
Any input about these engines would be much appreciated.

Why don't developing countries like India just replace the rupee with the dollar and set Us prices for everything from Petrol and Snacks to Minimum Wage Daily Labourers to salaries of CEOs on big firms?
I'm an Indian btw and I have had this question for a while. At least affordability wise this decision will bring poor countries at par with developed countries and international trade will neither be a rip off for developing countries nor a steal for developed countries.

2006 Mini 1.6 petrol. I’m investigating the oil leak on my wife’s car, and one of the first things I saw was this connector dangling down. It comes down between the bumper and radiator, but I can’t see where it’s supposed to connect to. Any one know what it is or where it goes?
No petrol in this garage.
