    All USD, it works out at about R1.20/L. How is that possible i assume their fuel comes from SA?

    No taxes on fuel?
    Someone got confused between liters and gallons?

    But (depending on the date) even R1.20 * 4.5 = R5.40 per liter and is still substantially cheaper than SA fuel cost rates.

    The Seychelles, to me, is also a surprising stand-out at 10th cheapest.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
