Well it costs more than that for a litre here in Germany, at the moment my
local Aral has regular diesel at €1.149 ($1.45) a litre, Ultimate Diesel is
€1.229 ($1.55) and unleaded is €1.239 ($1.56) ISTR. Luckily I get around
5,3L/100 out of the Mondeo (~53mpg), which isn't bad for something of its
body size (family station wagon). It drops to the mid 40's when I'm doing
long motorway trips cruising over the 160km/h (100mph) mark.

And Germany is cheap next to England, my brother is currently paying around
$2 a litre for Petrol and a little more for Diesel.
