Hey mate....

Fuel is 2:16 nzd per litre ....
Nz dose not have buffets as such unless u head to hotels, mongolian or a place called vallentines.

Fruit and veges can range from town to town,easist is sopermarket otherwise u wil see lots of botique fruit veg stands on road side.....

Also lots of fish and chip shops head to white lady in auckland...

Grab a tikiwai cup www.tikiwai.com and it can give you free coffee and cheap food and beer across New Zealand and cost only $3.

Hope that helps
