The price in Zim usually differs by about 10-15% of the ZA price. More expensive.

PS. In any case, that is how I budget.

At today's exchange rate, US$1.30 = ZAR10.83
Exchange at US$1,00 = ZAR8,33

Douwe thanks for the up-date. I'm so keen to get there and the 16th is so far away. I'm like a kid about to get a present. The way I feel right now , I don't think it would matter if it was $2.00 a lt.

FJ40Cruzr, what is Blend - is that "leaded" which is what my Landy uses? Can a 1:9.3 compression engine run on that? thanks
