Mobile Warning - petrol ripoff Avoid

Just a heads up for anyone filling up around premium outlets.

The Shell petrol station on the right half a mile or so before the outlets as you approach from the 535 direction is selling petrol at 699 9/10 (yes, $7 a gallon! ).

I usually take note before going to a station but nipped in there and just realised after $10 so aborted.

Itís around $2.60 - 2.80 most places - so always check before filling up!

Sorry you got caught, this station is renowned for being extortionate, total rip-off 😡

Been basically the same price since they opened.

I am sure one of the residents said the owners only wanted a shop but had to have a garage to get planning permission . They didn't want to sell fuel hence they put the prices to a silly level.

Maybe they are selling it at standard UK prices so visitors donít get home sick.

We got caught there the other day... were desperate for fuel and didnít realise. I normally check the price so not quite sure what came over me!

Only $2.65 a gallon in Speedway opposite Disney Springs today.

God I wish we had those prices. Cost me just over £80 to fill up last week.

And whats this litre nonsense we have! Why can't we have gallons?

And isn't it great when you're over there watching Brian Shields on WFTV news saying it's going to be 82 degrees today? None of this Centigrade nonsense. If Brian says expect 28 today you'd better be off to North Face at Premium for a thick fleece.
