Yes, we have no petrol.
This was one of the last things I expected to happen in Dubai: Last night I was driving home with fingers crossed that I wasn't going to run out of petrol as Madame's fuel gauge was showing below empty. I pulled into a petrol station only to be told that, incredibly, they had run out of petrol "No Madame, khalas, feeneesh". How could a petrol station in Dubai run out of petrol? That would be like a NZ butcher running out of mutton. Brings to mind "The pub with no beer" but that would be soooo inappropriate wouldn't it?
