Guys it's double what fuel is in the north for premium that's it, you always don't need a full tank and we need to keep them in business. I usually fuel up in smooth rock drive up west side add fuel drive down east side to Cochrane. If you buy 20 liters Its an extra 30 dollars to your trip, nothing like ridding miles and miles with no road crossings. I just came back stayed at cedar meadows in Timmins , dinners and drinks are more than the fuel. I would go insane staying up there , you have to sell a shit load of fuel to pay a guy to be there 24 hours and live in isolation,

Who's complaining? Guy asked the price and we told him. You don't need to give us a lecture

Yep, we went up the east side because we figured it would be a shorter run to smooth rock. Took our minimum 10 litres but I really would have like to see if I could have made it all the way. I don't begrudge the guys for making a living. At least it's premium this year.
