Red diesel, white diesel

New European laws mean that we are no longer allowed to have red diesel in our tanks.
By a surprisingly good piece of planning we are down to our last 20 litres of red diesel. Our new tanks and the new white Deutz will only ever know the white stuff.
Our first litre of red diesel cost us 33 Guilder cents in 1994, now we pay more than 150 Euro cents; ten times as much, almost twenty years later.
