I bought some 'Premium 98' fuel from the Adminaby BP, about a month ago.
My bike ran like a dog all the way to Tumut, where I filled the tank again to dilute the sh*t.
Ran better from there. Once home I drained the remaining fuel from the tank.

I have had similar things, happen in the past, same as the OP, so fark em!!!

I swear never to go back to those places (even if they were giving sh*t away for free (get that Joyce Mayne )) for me it just principle!

I know some of these small places put up with sh*t, but they need to understand that customer service is a big part of their business surviving.

I was in there a couple of weeks ago. Had a chat to old mate about more rally bikes coming through soon etc. He seemed nice enough to me, joking away etc. Must 'ave got him on a good day.

You could fuck his wagon by contacting BP and let them know he is selling dodgy petrol.

BP is already aware of his poor behaviour, a report or two more would probably be good

Ha ha we used to go to a caravan park every year and the owners were delightful, then they sold it to a couple of right pricks that had no business being in customer service, their motto was "we are not here to make friends" deadset thats what they actually told people, naturally they didn't last long

Ever tried getting BP to admit that one of their servos sold you bad fuel? Got water in my diesel from BP once, cost a thousand $ to flush it. Complained to BP and they said they would investigate the servo. Their result was that it was clean. I asked how they did their investigation. They said they asked the servo manager and he said his fuel was clean. Never been back to a BP servo.
