Fuel Surcharge calculation:

Our price for distribution are based on various costs the largest of which is diesel. Our prices are based on fuel costing no more than 90ppl. Should the price of fuel rise above 90ppl we reserve the right to introduce a fuel surcharge based on the following calculation. For every 3p increase over 90p we will charge 1% to cover the additional cost of diesel.
