2008vistablue Posted May 3, 2008 Report Share Posted May 3, 2008 Hello - I will be able to finally see my shelby in another month. I'm on foreign assignment and she was delivered in March and has been in storage since. Living in England has been a real SHOCK at the pump. Gas is $8.25 a gallon. No this isn't a typo! They sell it in litres and its 1.10 GBP each. With the exchange rate at about $2 per 1 pound it costs $90 to fill up my little 4 cylinder compact car. Ok the octane rating is 95 (only one they offer). So while my gas mileage will drop in half when I get back the cost of gas is the States is less than half the cost in England. Moving over 2 years ago the cost of gas was .78 GBP per litre. At 1.10 GBP now that means gas has went up $2.43 in the last 2 years!!!! When I fill the shelby up $3.75 it will look like a bargain. If they stop the fed gas tax for a period it will look even better. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
