just to add there was no VPower Glasgow Pollokshaws Road or Anniesland Cross today :rolleyes:

petrol tanker rolled up when we were in the forecourt and I asked the driver if he was carrying VPower.

Said he wasn't and that he was surprised there was none at the pumps...

Knew there was a shortage last week coming up from Manchester but it was meant to be sorted by this weekend ;)

Tesco Uddingston are pretty good with having 99 for anyone out my way. I think it'll get fairly well recycled with the amount of flash cars in Bothwell. Plenty of school run mums in range rover sports working their way through half a ton of it a week given the speed they seem to insist on going at - standstill or 70mph in a 30.

Looks like a national shortage, if you google shell v power shortage theres quite a lot of forums talking about the v power pumps being dry. A few garages have told people it was a quality control issue that has lead to the problem

I fuelled up at whitburn shell this morning and all their v power pumps were working if this helps anyone close by

I pulled into an Edinburgh Shell station this afternoon and the V-Power pumps were still open.

However, I didn't have the Scooby, so wished to enquire as to whether their stocks might be expected to last until tomorrow evening, at which time I might choose to replenish my supply. The conversation with the (I have to say quite polite) African woman behind the counter went something like this:

Me: "Hi, I've come in to find out how much V-Power you have left."

Cashier: "No."

Me: "No - there's none left?"

Cashier: "No, I don't understand."

Me: "OK. The V-Power petrol - do you think you have enough to last until tomorrow evening?"

Cashier: "No."

Me: "You don't?"

Cashier: "No, I just don't understand."

Me (observing the lengthening queue behind): "Thank you! :) "

So I'm hoping whatever they did have lasts until the morra night... :D

I'm surprised you're not taking advantage of your two Scoobs and doing a bit of stockpiling there, Cath :D

Incidentally, the rumour I read (browsing another forum) is that a 'leaking pipe' at the refinery caused them to have to temporarily cease production of Veep, and that they expect to be up and running again within days...

Here's hoping...
