Motorists may have trouble finding a fully-stocked petrol station during the next few weeks.

 

Petrol stations around the country are running out of fuel, and it is unclear if the rolling shortages will be fixed in time for the big Christmas getaway.

Fuel terminals in Auckland, Napier, Wellington and the South Island have lower stocks that usual, due to the sustained warm, dry weather and ongoing issues with the leaking Northland pipeline that had to be shut in September.

For the past week, motorists have reported having problems buying petrol and diesel at fuel stations across the country.

In response to frustrated customers posting on Facebook, Z Energy said there would be rolling shortages of diesel and 95-octane over the next couple of weeks. It is unclear how many petrol stations are affected.

Gull in Avondale has 98, though obviously a different supply chain and E10 which some people are funny about...

New to this: Do Gull bump up the octane with E10? and what does the 'Obviously different supply' relate too?
