Correct me if I am wrong, but I think you used the wrong conversion here.

1 British imperial Gallon = 4.545 liters.
1 United States liquid Gallon = 3.785 liters.

So it should read GBP3.14 / gallon or USD5.69

Still damn expencive though!

Today I paid AUD0.963 a litre or GPB0.404 or USD0.733. 1 US Gallon = USD2.77

I thought I was getting ripped off.

Australian ULP = 91 RON. How does that compare to US or UK?

Right.  Buying a Prius to reduce pollution and consumption of a
non-renewable resource is not as rewarding as adding another kid to an
overpopulated planet.
