Please give generously

Christmas is coming, PETROLBLOG’s wallet isn’t getting fat. Please put a penny to support our French Tat. If you haven’t got a penny, a couple of quid will do. If you haven’t got a quid, well… we love you anyway.

If you like what you read, please make a donation to ensure the site keeps producing waffle and bunk. That way, PETROLBLOG will remain free of ads and pesky sponsored posts. Thank you.
