Is that a thing now?
Apparently all the garages in a local town are out of fuel.
Hardly surprising as since gas prices have skyrocketed, petrol can't be far behind.
I'm going out now to fill up all our cars incase people start panic buying..........
Me too. Taking down some buckets and a couple of watering cans to our local BP. Can’t do any harm
Nothing like the Internet to set the rumour mill on fire
No and yes.
Fuel is transported by HGVs and as widely reported there are not enough of them.
So refineries have all the fuel, but its difficult to get it to all petrol stations at present.
Looking at proper news sources seems to suggest in real terms that this means longer between deliveries, so you may experience some short term lack of fuel. Trouble is as seen before a shortage just prompts some to stock up, even if they don't need it, which just makes it worse.
Don’t forget, wheelie bins make excellent fuel storage tanks, and are especially good for wheeling up onto your box trailer
Iv had to go to 3 garages today to fill my company van up none at all at all 3 bp garages

Just remember that all brands fill up at the local oil terminal. And then the specific brand additives are added if needed.
So its a BP driver shortage problem originally plus panic buying.
So hows Brexit going? Hmm ?
And once filled, they allow @Merlin Cat1 a steady platform upon which to balance.
Our local BP has just been reported in the paper as being closed due to lack of supply. How a great has fallen.
I believe you can also use plastic bags. These will squash into small spaces.
Take back control
Aylesbury Tesco had plenty of unleaded - well until my convoy arrived and filled up. I also hired a 12 yard skip and paid the driver a score to fill it up with Super and drop it back at my house.
Got to go - the fire brigade are at the door.......
The skips round your way must be better condition than ours, it would come out much quicker than it could possibly go in here.
That'll be the E10 then.....
I thought you didn't have any
