I wouldnt "bank" on pun

Smaller amounts may appear quicker but larger amounts may be subject to clearance and take longer....why dont you transfer a smaller amount a couple of times to make sure the money will be there to get your petrol, then transfer the larger amount?

HSBC are good for transferring large amounts instantly I've definitely up to 500 but others like A+L put it into BACS if its a large amount which takes a few days. I'd do what StevenA2000-uk says and do a couple of transfers

I've done transfers upto the 10000 limit with HSBC and they always go through instantly (i.e. seconds) via Faster Payments - it should tell you on the final confirmation page if the payment is eligible.

I bank with Barclays, so not sure if HSBC handles it the same way. Last time I lost my wallet, bank cards, etc... I walked into my local Barclays branch presented my Passport and they allowed me to withdraw funds - don't remember them setting a limit on how much I was allowed to withdraw on that occasion.
