Hi From Australia

Have purchased recently a Cessna 182P in the "land Downunder" and based in Albury NSW, on the NSW, Victoria Border. Very hapy with the aircraft, a real work horse, tough and very forgiving.
About to do a major upgrade of the avionics, G3X, GFC500 Autopilot, GNX375 Nav ADSB in and out etc. I know it may be overkill BUT for me its about the next few years of flying about, enjoying it and the safety side of it as well.

    Hi... the fuel price down here are $1.59 per litre (jan2021) so 2.5 (estimate) x my price should be your privce = $3.97 USG ... I think I have that correct :) However prices can vary depending if they are fueling in the "never nevers", just up past whoop whoop :)

    There is some great information on this site, ideas etc and just feeding off the enthusiasm of other pilots... a great digital asset.

  • Thanks for the international update! Fascinating to hear from other areas of the world. Thanks!

    Should be 3.78 x 1.59 so $6 approx a gallon

  • Wow.. Expensive...any refineries in your country? Or is fuel shipped in..

  • We are a progressive nation...we close down all manufacturing, stop refineries, import all fuel, sell the worlds largest gas reserves to Asia and buy them back a massive price, put up wind mills and solar with little to no base power supplies.... so back to your question ... Fuel is shipped in. All china needs to do is position a fishing boat north of us and we would be history... Like I said....very progressive :)

  • Thanks..sorry! It is unfortunately the times in which we live.

    On a more humorous note, did you know that things are more like they are now than they've ever been before? :)
