That gasoline would have melted that bag by the time she got home and she'd just have a car that stunk of spilt gasoline forever.

 

I wouldn't mind it. I love the smell of gasoline. 

 

But I do not think this was her intended result.

 

 

 

She's probably panic bought enough bog roll to soak it up anyway 😂😂😂😂

An anti-British arsehole chimes in. The entertainment industry was a mistake, I swear.

"David Baddiel"?  Wasn't he that unfunny bloke that used to be on the TV?  Frank Skinner's sidekick?  I was wondering what had happened to him.  Talking shit on twitter like the rest of the wankers.

So, does fuel have an 'expiry date'? If so, its an interesting theory. However, if fuel doesn't 'expire', then its sadly just 'misinformation'.

UK electric car inquiries soar during fuel supply crisis

Sellers of plug-in vehicles say petrol shortages are driving people to adopt the new technology

 

As petrol stations in parts of the UK started running out of fuel on Friday, business at Martin Miller’s electric car dealership in Guildford, Surrey, started soaring.

After what ended up being his company EV Experts busiest day ever, interest does not appear to be dying down. This week the diary is booked up with test drives and the business is low on stock.

 

“People buy electric cars for environmental reasons, for cost-saving reasons and because the technology’s great,” he said. “But Friday was one of those moments where people said, ‘Do you know what, this is a sign that we need to go electric’.”

While scenes of chaos play out at petrol stations across the country amid shortages, for many electric vehicle (EV) dealers the fuel crisis has led to an unexpected surge in inquiries and sales.

I think you might be getting near the real reason this has been engineered

 

No might about it! It's obvious. The push for electric cars has been in the media for months. In case you didn't get the message folks:

 

BUY AND ELECTRIC CAR IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE PLANET!!! IF YOU DON'T REPLACE YOUR PETROL CAR WITH AN ELECTRIC CAR THEN YOU ARE VERY SELFISH! YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT KILLING THE PLANET!

 

Joe minimum wage bloke: I can't afford to buy an electric car.

 

YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT THE WORLD YOU POLLUTING PLEB! NO PETROL FOR YOU!

Manufactured crisis to further push the need for electric cars, which of course will transition into driverless vehicles which will decide where you can go and can't go.

 

Classic problem-reaction-solution. 

 

The attack on good ol' petrol vehicles has been building up for quite some time now. Demonising it for "damaging the environment", the introduction of E10 petrol which damages older vehicles, and many relatively new ones as well. Now manufactured fuel shortages which will introduce small petrol limits as the norm, making it a nuisance and seriously restricting the freedom for petrol and diesel drivers.

 

The clowns that are the normies can never see the forest for the trees.

 

Spot on, and as others have noted here the Grid cannot support a load more electric vehicles/cars on the road, even if Joe Minimum Wage could afford them. 

 

Joe Pleb will be expected to use driverless buses and trains in the future.

 

The only travel that will give him some sort of freedom is the trusty bicycle!

@Grumpy Owlthanks the insight. I don't think there will be a genuine food shortage, i do think its possible we will see empty food shelves and possible rationing. All manufactured by the elite.

 

I'm not worried. I have plenty of food stocks (and I eat very little anyway) and ride a bicycle lol.

Sorry didnt notice.

Delete post please.

 

 

I'll let you off this time! 😄

 

While I did initially think it was some junk misinformation designed to make us conspiratorial types look silly, it was pointed out that it was actually true. So yes, it puts a new 'spin' on this situation, and explains why the media have gone into overdrive with this.

 

Interestingly, while browsing my local Reach Plc clickbait journalism spewer earlier, I came across this:

 

Does fuel expire? Everything you need to know about storing petrol

Quote

With panic buying happening across the UK, there are a number of people looking to store fuel in the worry that the crisis may not stop anytime soon.

As fuel stations continue to run out of petrol, a £30 limit has been brought in at some petrol to try and stop people from filling up more than they should.

Despite Government officials telling people not to panic buy, drivers have been queuing up across the country to fill up their cars and spare tankers of fuel to avoid having to queue up.

From: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/uk-news/fuel-expire-everything-you-need-21696040

 

Before I even clicked on the link, I admit I was expecting to read some kind of 'debunk' or 'fact-check' of the above social media post.

 

Thankfully no, but it irked me more that this article appears to be giving people ideas on the best way to store amounts of petrol and diesel at home.

 

THERE IS NO NEED BECAUSE THERE IS NO FUCKING FUEL SHORTAGE!!

 

Fuel stations are only 'running out' because the brainwashed masses continue to queue up for up to two hours just so they can fill their tanks up.

 

Look at this shit:

 

Driver in two hour petrol queue for fuel orders Nando's to car

Quote

A driver waiting TWO HOURS for fuel today left fellow motorists stunned - by ordering a Nando's to her car.

Lily Potkin, 40, found herself trapped in "the mother of all queues" so ordered Nando's chicken wrap and peri-peri chips from Deliveroo.

Lily said : "It was really funny. The people behind me saw him delivering it and the mood changed.

From: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/driver-two-hour-petrol-queue-21703582

Haha very funny. Queuing up for two hours for fuel, got hungry, so ordered a Deliveroo. How have these people got this kind of free time? I wonder if she got to pick her kids up from school on time...

 

Next week: "I spent all my money on petrol and Nandos, now I can't feed my children, who can I blame for this?"

 

(Also I do wonder, these fucking idiots who choose to queue up for hours just to fill their tanks, do they leave their engines idling while they are queuing?)
