    There is one beer I couldn't drink, Fiji Bitter! :puke2
    Apparently it was bottled in Fiji from kegs imported from CUB in Oz. (that was in the '80s so I don't know about now.)

    I just checked the FuelWatch website for prices of 98 RON in Perth metro area and the prices vary from 148 to 155 today. Nothing over 150 down here in Albany,
    And I thought being so close to NSW was the high price you paid for living in Brisvegas...

    When you run without a muffler you need more octane rating...

    It's $1.76 AUD for a litre of lead free 92 at the local servo in Oregon. That's the price for regular everywhere else in California.

    Victoria and NSW of all places, when I rode down south to visit my son in Canberra and mother in Vic in May last year. Even ACT and QLD were under 90c for 91 ULP, for around a month or so, if you shopped around.

    I bought a little Titanium stove thingy from the States, and for a laugh I also grabbed a "Keg stove" that was on special, actually works quite well. Buried in the garage somewhere. Like this but a big Fosters can. Img0098-500_0_large.jpeg

    Thought the pic above was a different brand of beer. Here's mine, all the can is good for, the beer itself is awful. 20210915_123242.jpg
