Phone the boatyard and ask them how much gasoil is for heating.It's the 100% domestic price I wish to derive from the 60/40 advertised price
Yes, I strongly recommend Chris on Merchant too. Good price, efficient and friendly serviceNot sure where you are but Chris of narrow boat Merchant covers most of the River and he sells good fuel.
He is always steaming up and down from his base near Staines.
It's a modern setup not a nackered old work boat with dodgy tanks. In fact he has just had a new engine fitted - JCB 444.
This means he can get to you even quicker
Home - Thames Diesel
still rip-off prices, it should be nearer £0.50Phone the boatyard and ask them how much gasoil is for heating.
I did this with Caversham Boat Services the lady said 93p so I carried on to Better boating which was 89p.
Diesel heaters with a cooking plate or diesel cookers are great devices to have on a boat.
This is true specially given the massive drop during the covid problems but nobody seems to want to sell proper cheap red diesel on the Thames.still rip-off prices, it should be nearer £0.50
