Should think so to .. there prices are higher than everyone else at the moment where we live. Diesel is 99.9p at the moment...

hate the way they do business... make you spend £50 just to get a couple of pounds off on a tank of fuel... rip you off from all directions..

This would make sense - my local Tesco has increased Petrol prices by 3 pence in the last two weeks.

9/01/09 ?

101.9p/L in Quedgeley. Shell is 99.9p/L. Tescos shoud be boycotted for doing this they pride themselves on being the cheapest for fuel within a certain area. They talk carp. DON'T BUY TESCOS FUEL. Sorry for shouting.

Good advanced knowledge. Petrol prices are up and down like the barmaid's knickers round here.

Got a contact number for that barmaid? :p

Not looked at the Tesco fuel prices recently as Asda are usually cheaper but I've noticed Tesco prices do tend to creep up prior to these 5p off 50 deals. They were doing double clubcard points, are these still on the go or are they stopping in leiu of the 5p off a litre on a 50 spend promo ?
#10
As many have noted, their prices have been going up of late so I was anticipating this happening - don't know about asda but Sainsbury's has been on the climb too.
Local fuel stations have been undercutting them by 2 or 3 pence - what ever happened to their price match guarantee?

The lady said plus double clubcard points to!

Agreed, they actually admitted to me that they inflate the price when the offer is on. Go to Morrisons and use their fuel card. Dont bother with Shell either, their loyalty scheme is a con.
#13
the price is starting to creep up again , wouldnt buy anything from tesco but a good deal for the ones that use them i suppose.
#14
5 times Tesco the con merchants have put petrol up in my area in the past 3 weeks , 82.9p to 87.9p for unleaded whilst everyone else is still at 83 or 84.......

All this while the oil price is still as low as its ever been at around 40$ a barrel but people buying petrol at Tesco give them the ability to get away with it when we should be boycotting them.

Im surprised the media hasnt jumped upon the prices slowly going up while oil stays low........

But this "offer" basically means Tesco sell petrol for the same price as they did 3 weeks ago and get loads more "fooled" consumers spending £50 in their stores just to get petrol the same price as it should be anyway..........

i have noticed that the supermarkets around my area tescon and sainsbury are putting the price of fuel up again but i have not heard anything about the cost of oil going up,
last year oil was at $144 a barrel and now it is $44 a barrel, but the price of petrol and diesel never came down by 2/3rds i also heard that the thieving government are going to raise the duty on fuel so that they have got more of our money to waste on their expences.
#17
i have a diesel peugeot, always used tesco, and it was running ****.my sons a mechanic and told us to use super v diesel from a shell garage , the difference is amazing. tesco sell cheap diesel cheap. imo.

Can you buy a £50 item, fill up, then return it after for a refund of the £50 item?

Tescos always creep the price of their fuel up just before launching the 5p off a litre offer.

i can second that shells loyalty scheme is ****. I was filling up around £300 a month from shell due to work and in one year i only received £12 vouchers off fuel what a con.

Interesting.

With double points at the minute and unleaded at 86.9p/litre the "extra discount" on a 50-litre sale is currently £1.72 (assuming one takes one's Tesco points as Deal Vouchers). If you do, 86.9p/litre has a net cost of 80.02p/litre

Someone has said that the double-points promotion will continue. However if it doesn't then the net price with the 5p discount is 78.8p/litre (remembering, this assumes only "regular" clubcard points). So we're spending £50 for a net saving of 1.32p a litre versus the current promotion.

If the double points continues, the net price comes down to 75.5p/litre.
#23
gotta agree with all the comments about tesco putting prices up. unfortuantely in cardiff its price fixed so much that once tesco puts it up everybody else does, so fuel is 5p a litre more than it was a few weeks ago and the oil price is relatively stable.

That's a bit like saying the priceof a house depends on the price of bricks.

OK, perhaps that was an overstatement, but the point remains. Clearly there is a relation between the price of petrol and the price of its raw ingredient, i.e. oil. But other factors come into play as well. For example petrol normally goes up in colder weather - it's not difficult to the dynamics there.

Of course I'm not saying that Tesco aren't creeping up the price of petrol. But round my neck of the woods we have a Tesco, a Morrisons and an Asda, all with petrol stations. And all have been creeping the price up. And all three are still cheaper than Shell, Texaco, etc.

Tesco bashing is a fair game, but I don't think the petrol price rises are too much to do with promotions.
#25
Like a number on here I too was furious about Tesco's steady rise in fuel prices, so I called Tesco Head Office about the fact that they seem to be the most expensive petrol retailer in most places by about 3p a litre. They told me they scrapped their policy of always promising to be the cheapest fuel provider locally "around 2 years ago" and blamed their high prices on the rise of oil, the ukrainian gas problems for heavens sake and the fall of the pound against the dollar!!!
When I stated - as others on here have said - that the price of oil has fallen dramatically, they tried pitifully to argue their case saying they were giving double clubcard points :x

..... for heavens sake and the fall of the pound against the dollar!!!


Which is correct. ALL oil is traded in US dollars, regardless of where it is produced. The pound is falling against the dollar at the moment, which means oil is trading at a higher price for us Brits. :x

If anyone takes the Tesco deal up, they usually have a limit of 100 litres per voucher. More than enough for one car. If you have more than one car in the family and can organise it, you can line them up and fill more than one so long as you don't replace the pump nozzle in the 'holster' and it stays as one transaction.

As it's one voucher per £50 spend, anyone doing a 'Tesco big shop' could also sort their buying to just over £50 lots.

A lot of messing I agree but, as Tesco themselves tell us, every little helps.

Even so, the full 100 litres only gets a reduction of £5, so if you spend the minimum of £50 to get it, that's still only the equivalent of a 10% reduction on the store bill. Add the cost of the max 100ltr of fuel @ say 90p gives you £5 off a spend of £140 which is a reduction of 3.6%.

As others have said, it's marketing but they're hardly giving anything away.
#28
Don't want to start a big debate, but quite a number of people seem to have had rough running problems with Tesco petrol. I'm in no doubt that both Mondeos that I have owned run a lot better on "proper" petrol, and don't use quite so much of it. My local supermarket is Asda or Morrisons, but the effect was the same. Not a huge difference, but noticeable, and I'm only using the cheaper 95 octane from Esso or Shell.

I don't really agree, every garage where I live has been putting up petrol, even Asda has been creeping up lately, and I've always found them the cheapest regularly. So I don't think you can say Tesco has been putting it up deliberately for this offer starting, as everywhere seems to be doing the same. What angers me with petrol is that when the price starts to fall, they cut production to try and push the price back up.

5p when you spend £50, plus Double Clubcard Points isn't a bad deal if you ask me, provided you are spending the £50 anyway.

i can second that shells loyalty scheme is ****. I was filling up around £300 a month from shell due to work and in one year i only received £12 vouchers off fuel what a con.

I agree about the loyalty scheme however im still using Shell's credit card to buy petrol and still getting 3p per litre off petrol buying it with the card.....

So taken into account that shell in my area is already 2/3p per litre cheaper than tesco + the 3p from using their credit card gives me a better deal than Tesco can without having to spend £50 in their rotten shop :-D

The terms of the credit card say the discount only applies when petrol is over 100p per litre but im still getting the discount showing on my statement each month so the Shell credit card pretty good deal, esp if they are still doing 6p per litre back for the first 3 months like they were before xmas.
