image for Petrol to be 'watered down'
BP Water dispensers

FuelLeaks, the whistle-blowing energy site have revealed shock details that the government are proposing to water down petrol in order the save money.

It follows a lead by drug dealers who are peddling powder containing as little as 1% pure cocaine as they try to make up for lost sales in the recession. They are mixing it with Benzocaine and lidocaine which mimic the numbing effects of cocaine. Just by sight you are not going to know what the quality of the cocaine is.

FuelLeaks say that Phil Hammond, Transport Minister, has agreed, in principal, to allow major petrol suppliers to mix their petrol with water.

Hammond's rationale is simple: As fuel prices continue to rise drivers will be much less willing to fill their cars up, particularly if their cars don't work properly.

We have worked out that, with a ratio of 1 part petrol to 99 parts water, at current prices the actual cost of the petrol itself will be around £128.70 a litre.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
