Haulier working out of our yard told me yesterday his trucks were filling up at the pumps as he couldn’t buy bulk for his tanks anywhere near as cheap at present.
More normal times we decided that it wasn’t worth it unless using it very quickly because the price at the pumps only had to drop a penny or two and you lost out.

I wonder how many farmers will try to teach the young who tend to have one speed (flat out) to just take it a bit steadier this season. Ok I was young once and tried to drive the tractors of the day at max while silage and corn carting, but I wasn’t paying the bill! Can much really be saved by having a lighter touch and or setting auto speed a fraction lower?

considerate driving will save a significant amount of fuel, and reduce maintenance considerably also.

If you were really switched on ( OK, not me ) you could buy quantities at the right price. Imagine if you'd bought 1000 L before Xmas.........

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
