Now take into account the rise in number of cars on the road, plus the rise in average mileage per year and that graph doesn't show the full story.Regarding the length of queues...
We have lost a significant number of filling stations in the UK over the last 20 years;

All other factors being equal, this alone will increase the average queue length at each site.
In the town closest to where I grew up in mid-Staffordshire, there were seven petrol stations forty years ago, and now there are three.
What? You have to be joking!That explains the economy! However you will have paid a considerable amount for the car and suffer high depreciation I expect,so no travel can be really economical.
I can’t say I’ve ever seen a second hand car appreciate in value and become worth more than it was new.Hybrid or anything the value falls after being bought new as far as I know,What? You have to be joking!
I paid less for it than I would have paid for a new petrol Karoq, and currently the second hand value is increasing.
And it's MY car, not Urrell's.
You don't get it, do you?
Cap HPI has found nearly 50 six-month-old used cars with 5,000 on the clock are fetching higher prices than the list prices of like-for-like brand new versions.
Leading the data was Britain’s cheapest car.
Not the brightest bunny in the field, are you saying I can run my diesel yeti on a mix of diesel and Morrison’s rapeseed oil?Any fuel additive is fare game for taxation as a fuel, even the likes of injector cleaner.
The only non taxed fuel (that's for road use) is vegetable oil / biodiesel and there's a 2500L per rolling 12 months limit on that, this is also per household, and you have to keep records to prove the amount used.
Yes and no.Not the brightest bunny in the field, are you saying I can run my diesel yeti on a mix of diesel and Morrison’s rapeseed oil?
That's why on most diesel Yetis I've ever checked, there is a sign inside the the fuel filler flap that says "NO BIO DIESEL" in a red circle. Recycled veg/frying oil in particular does not do well under the extreme pressures found in the injection systems of CR engines.Your Yeti would probably run on a mix of diesel and veg oil, however it's not something I'd recommend in a common rail engine.
From my own experiences I completely agree.That's why on most diesel Yetis I've ever checked, there is a sign inside the the fuel filler flap that says "NO BIO DIESEL" in a red circle. Recycled veg/frying oil in particular does not do well under the extreme pressures found in the injection systems of CR engines.
Older diesels, like VW's PD series or indirect injection Ricardo designs (older still) would run just fine - till the fuel delivery system eventually gummed up that is. In fact the more miles you did on bio in those, the better. Less chance for the bio part of the fuel to cultivate bacterial and fungal growths while parked up with fuel in the tank that had been there for weeks, absorbing water and condensation from inside the tank walls.
