    I have found the gas in Rotorua has been consistently cheaper than anywhere for months. They seem to be having a wee bit of rivalry between stations

    There is never any competition on fuel prices down this island.

    Gull fuel contains ethanol. Ethanol attracts water.

    OK, I should have been more specific. Gull Force 10 contains ethanol, I'm assuming that this is why it's not a good idea to use in boats given that, well... they're kind of around it a lot.

    Yeah not sold on that one. Can it make water jump up, open the fuel cap and get down into the tank? Im guessing Hayden may be refering to the performace of the fuel?

    People can introduce water to the inside of a boat through a variety of methods. Force 10 is a great fuel, if the engine it's being used in has been specifically tuned for it but I digress.
