When did the UK switch from imperial to metric fuel pricing?

Wholesale changed in 1976

Retail changed in the mid 1980s when the cost per gallon approached £2,

(the most that the majority of petrol pumps of the time could cope with),

the Retailers successfully lobbied to be allowed to sell in litres and so not have to replace their pumps.

Though they could still sell in gallons if they wanted to, until 1995 when the Imperial Gallon creased to be a "primary unit" of measure.

I think there was also a psychological barrier at £2 which hastened the change

I think you’re right I remember paying £189.9 per gallon around about 1984/85. I don’t remember over £2 except in the far north of Scotland in the early 80s.
