Australia,Start Pumping Up Your Bike Tyres

Apparently, Australia has only 30 days of liquid fuel left. Yes, you heard me, Australia has just 22 days of crude oil, 59 days of LPG, 20 days of petrol, 19 days of aviation fuel and 21 days of diesel remaining. How could this be happening? Seems our government have taken their eye off the ball and don’t have a plan B when it comes to surplus fuel. The US strike on Syria and Middle East unrest haven’t helped. Australia relies on the Middle East for 91% of its transport fuel which basically means I will need to start pumping up my bike tyres.

Hello, The Airfare Doesn’t Include Fuel

OK, here’s the thing about catching a  cash strapped airline, you may end up having to do a whip around to pay for the plane’s fuel and landing fees or stay stranded on a tarmac in Vienna. 200 furious passengers on Comtel Air from India to Birmingham were forced to empty wallets and credit cards to foot the $31,000 bill after the Austrian owned airline went kaput and had no money to finish the last leg of the trip. Hmm, Austria is quite nice this time of year!

Honey, Can You Smell Gas?

I told you not to light that match!

You know what I hate? When a refueling hose and it’s receiving arm fall off a large cargo plane spewing jet fuel all over your roof. I really friggin hate that! No one was injured in the incident at Carmel Mountain but I can’t say the same for the roof.
