    In work (there are 5 of us)

    2 say that they have always called it "peccy"
    2 say that they have always called it "petty"

    One says he has never used either term.

    What do the fellow mancs of bluemoon say?

    Peccy? Petty? Sounds like some half-wit from Didsbury?

    I've always said 'petrol' (even when I want Abu Dhabi diesel) or 'juice'!

    I've often heard it referred to as 'Tiity'.

    Think it was a 50s / 60s description.
