View Full Version : Simpson Desert Fuel Planning

28th July 2013, 09:06 PM
Just thought I would let everyone know that if crossing the Simpson, that Birdsville is the cheapest place anywhere in the region for buying fuel, and is also at the Eastern end, with Mt.Dare being the cheapest at the Western side.

You should still fill up at places like Innaminka and Tibooburra as you don't know when and where you can't get fuel like us when we arrived at Mt.Dare, but for filling emergency Jerry-cans and for extra fuel, Birdsville is around $1.70 a Litre, as compared to Innaminka and Tibooburra which was around 30 cents a Litre more.

If you are coming in from the other end, you don't have much choice but to buy at Mt.Dare at around $2.20 a Litre, but it was a fraction cheaper than Finke.

I hope that this helps. :smiley_thumbs_up:
