Price Check, Price Check on BP Ultimate

unwritten law

Recommended Posts

Check out this crazy price of BP Ultimate at Tamworth (Central NSW) on friday avo as I was passing thru on my way to Sydney. I had to fill up because it was the only stop closest to Warwick and Newcastle that had Ultimate (filled up at Warwick). lucky I looked up on the BP website where the stations that had Ultimate were before I left. Has anybody paid more?

18c/L more than regular unleaded?!??

I've noticed lately that ultimate has been 9c/L more than reg. unleaded around Brisbane, which is crazy considering that optimax was only 3c/L more than regular unleaded when it was first introduced... get everyone hooked on the good stuff then jack the prices up...

damn it, i was hoping you were a good looking check out chick doin a price check!

as for bp ultimate, there is a bp round the corner from my work on fairfield rd, that has 10c difference. I know it's only 1c but i try not to make a habit of using that servo for that reason. Im a povvo bloke!!! hehe

yep the price is getting pretty high, especially if you need to refuel on the weekend.

Mid week you can usually buy it on the Coast for under 90 cents, but come the weekend add 5-10 cents on top of that.

ops... so sorry... that's the price for the normal unleaded... i forgotten to add another 10c to it. so yeah, it will come up to same as Gold Coast.

but i noticed the pattern for the past few months that prices are cheapest on tuesday, wednesday and thursday. is it the same in GC?

Yep usually Tues, Wed and Thurs are the cheap days.

I try to top up on Thursday in the vain hope that it will carry me through to Tuesday, but as we all know the weekend is cruising time and there goes the petrol ;)

I went through warwick on my way up here, and was only a few c more expensive than rest of QLD. Me thinks they jacked it up for holiday season and a quick buck.

Last i paid was 86c a litre the other day for ultimate.

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
