Just seen an advert for the 5p off.

I guess it's a spend over £50 job to get the voucher.....

No doubt in store only... perhaps not - see comments below.

Anything that gets fuel cheaper is a hot deal

Great offer IF they didnt add a few pence per litre just before starting these offers!
#11
Shop at Asda - you'll save more money than buying your groceries at Tossco, so saving 5p on a litre of fuel won't matter. :)

I got this sent to me the other day from my uncle who works for shell!


THESE ARE TIPS I GOT FROM A FRIEND IN DURBAN

I don't know what you guys are paying for petrol.... but here in Durban we are also paying higher, up to R7.35 per litre. But my line of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some tricks to get more
of your money's worth for every litre.

Here at the Marian Hill Pipeline where I work in Durban , we deliver about 4 million litres in a 24-hour period thru the pipeline. One day is diesel the next day is jet fuel, and petrol, LRP and Unleaded. We have 34-storage tanks here with a total capacity of 16,800,000 litres.

Only buy or fill up your car or bakkie in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the
more dense the fuel, when it gets warmer petrol expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening....your litre is not exactly a litre. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the petrol, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays an important role. A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.

When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode. If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. In slow mode you should be pumping on low speed, thereby minimizing the vapours that are created while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapour return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapour. Those vapours are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less worth for your money.

One of the most important tips is to fill up when your tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is, the more fuel you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine. Petroleum storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the petrol and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation.

Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every litre is actually the exact amount.

Another reminder, if there is a fuel truck pumping into the storage tanks when you stop to buy, DO NOT fill up--most likely the petrol/diesel is being stirred up as the fuel is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.

Hope this will help you get the most value for your money.

DO SHARE THESE TIPS WITH OTHERS!

Most standard fuels are the same - I know someone who works for BP in Grangemouth and has seen Tesco, Shell, Asda, Morrisions tankers being filled at the same time using the same fuel at the same refinery......
#14
Very Strange how Tesco do this AFTER another supermarket has done the same thing. Wonder how long it will last for.....:thumbsup:

This email has been doing the rounds for months, you can tell "your uncle" that. :giggle: But it's still quite good advice to a degree.
#16
Filled up a my local Shell which was 2 pence cheaper than my local Tesco - is a £50 spend worth £1.20 off fuel, I don't need to spend £50 with them next week
#17
this is a good deal as a lot of people are going to be spending this much instore with the £5 off coupons at the mo:thumbsup:

The problem with that is its about another 5p a litre on top of the 95ron I had a Skyline that started costing me £10 for a 30mile round trip (yep some playing) so decided to sell after having it for 4 years.

or shop at lidl or aldi and get even more of a saving !!

Take it from someone who worked for one of the major oil companies. There is no earthly difference between any of the retailers in one given area. They get supplies from the nearest big supplier. That means that your Shell petrol may have come from a BP refinery or vice versa. Same for the supermarkets. They are all selling the same raw material. The only difference is the additive to the petrol peculiar to each retailer. These additives make diddly squat difference IMHO. I wouldn't pay more than tuppence a litre extra for premium. When I last did, I made about 10 extra miles on a tank. Hardly worth the premium.

welsh_andy from the AOC I presume.
I use the 99 all the time, car performs better on this than Shell Vpower
#22
sainsburys also have this offer I put in £40 of petrol today and got £1.60 or there abouts. I thought is it worth it carry on that extra fuel around for mainly local journeys its bound to decrease your consumption
#23
put tesco fuel in my car twice over the last couple of months and both times made my car hesitant and jerky, went back to bp and all was well again
#24
all well and good but you drive around endlessly looking for a tesco fueling station thats more more spent buring fuel..

i am content with my local shell...but lately, i am ditching the car....

Does anyone have any figures for this? what is the difference driving round with a full tank to having £20 in?
#27
I usually use Morrissons and I've never had an issue. Filled up at Sainsburys and got 50 miles less from a full tank!

There wer no differences to my journey either.
#28
I can save 5p a lite just by choosing to go somewhere cheaper than tesco. Also I agree about TESCO petrol , it doesn't seem to go as well in my car , its the only yime I've heard my lovely V8 sounding lumpy.

lovely V8 .


im going to need to see pictures
#30
I'm in agreement with Columb. I've bought fuel at Tesco's twice. Both times my car had lots of juddering and poor acceleration. This was before they got into trouble for supplying a dodgy load of fuel.

I'd rather pay the extra 5p so their fuel doesn't screw up my car.
#31
if it gets me cheaper fuel then this is defo a hot deal,asda will follow soon pity they can't do it by me thy've gone all cards only now fully automated pumps

I should do a listing for what a bargain a used LS400 lexus is.
Ok , maybe it does only get 25mpg's on average , but it is a 4liter V8 auto.
IMO it is the ultimate car for people who dont like driving.

It's also complete cock
1) The subterranean temperature of a petrol tank varies very little across a year and in no way will it vary significantly during a 24hr period (apart from immediately after a delivery). Have you noticed how constant cave temperatures are - amazingly enough having about 6ft of earth on top of a tank plus concrete etc is an amazingly good insulator.

2) UK petrol pumps do not have active vapour recovery (stage 2) unlike the US, the vapour recovery in UK garages occurs when the tanker puts fuel into the tanks - fuel goes from petrol tanker to tanks and vapour then goes from underground tanks to tanker. It doesn't make any difference how quickly you fill up - think about it logically 60 litres of fuel means 60 litres of vapour out....however slow you pump the fuel.

Christ I really do despair about the stupidity and complete gullibilty of people!:whistling:

Most cars wont benefit from higher octane rated fuel, you're just chucking your money away.
Having said that I've tried the various different super unleadeds and have found very little difference. I now buy standard fuel and add Redex to my tank to improve performance. It makes a noticable improvement to my v6 TDi Audi.
