I Will be driving a rental car in Scotland, England, and Wales the last two weeks of this month. Technically, (Hence Tech Forum) I will need to purchase Petrol. Could someone provide me with an approximate cost per liter?

I am not from the UK, but I live close to it.

I have been told by someone from the UK last week that one will have to pay approx. $1,25 per liter(!) petrol (diesel is a bit cheaper).

I think you will be glad that your 560SL doesn't fit in the overhead compartment...

unleaded petrol is 75.9 Pence Per litre
Leaded **** is 80.9 Pence per litre
and diesel is 81.9 pence per litre.
Hope this helps. It just shows you how expensive fuel is in the U.K or is that (rip off u.k).

Thanks for the replies. I had planned for US $5 per US gal equivalent, so maybe I will have a little extra for a few pints of Britain's fine brews. Or maybe $ to cover another round of fuel price increases.

Too much!

Currently about 75p/L for unleaded, more for Lead Replacement Petrol (LRP/4-star) and diesel (80p/L+). That's down in the south-east, it's more pricey still in remote parts of Scotland. It's also usually more pricey on the motorways for some reason, and quite a lot cheaper if you go to supermarket petrol stations, eg Tesco, Sainsbury, Asda.
