I know this is'nt really a deal but have Just had e-mail notification that as of this morning ASDA have dropped the the price of Unleaded Petrol and Diesel at all of their 176 stations round the country down to 99.9p for both Unleaded and Diesel, as they feel they can no longer justify prices about the £1 a litre mark...

AND IF YOU ASK ME ITS ABOUT TIME TOO....
here is hoping other retailers will follow suit and push the price even further down to where it shoud be based on the price of oil.....

Yep, but at least it is headding in the right direction.... plus they are also making diesel and petrol the same price, and its about time that happened as well... this time last year there was about 13p a litre difference betwwen the two types of fuel...
#3
Hmmm and on the same there's a fuel protest on the M62/M60/M602 lol
#4
Thanks. And we have an Asda credit card that we only use for fuel that gives 1p a litre off.

LOL... Very True.... it seems to have been going up weekly for no reason at all round where I live...

Fair play to Asda, they are already 2p a litre cheaper here than the theiving ***** as Tesco who have been overpriced ever since they had the contaminated fuel and decided to recoup their costs from their customers IMO.
#8
Agree!
I pay 105.9 for diesel at tecos!!
Unfortunately no asda anywhere near me :(
#9
At last something cheaper in Spain, Diesel works out about 77.5p a litre
#10

'I know, we've been putting the price of petrol/diesel up weekly, almost 20p a litre over the last three months, but lets try and make ourselves look good by putting it back down 2p. That way we'll make all the idiots think we're on their side and we're saving them money!'


Net results are that we're still paying 18p a litre more than we were three months ago and I know for sure the price of producing the stuff hasn't gone up that much. So Asda can suck my balls if they think they're convincing me they're doing us a favour.

Hopefully this will be the start of a price war, and start the price going down to when it was in the 85p range...

I read somewhere that supermarkets are able to sell fuel cheaper than Shell, Esso, etc because they dont bother adding the beneficial additives to the fuel mixture (e.g., injector cleaner, etc) that helps keep your engine clean. In fact, performance car owners were advised not to use supermarket fuel.

Can someone who knows about this confirm whether supermarket fuel is identical to "normal" Shell or Esso Fuel? (i.e., I dont mean the performance fuels such as BP Ultimate etc)
#15
Diesel now cheaper than Unleaded at my local Asda. Haven't seem that for a while.
#16
Great, I`m gonna stock-up while it`s cheap:prop:

Not really, Darling puts 56p duty on each litre of fuel then slaps another 15% vat on top of that.

The real scandal is he has continued to increase taxes on petrol in the recession and there has been barely any medi a coverage
#18
Always vote these deals cold because I hate the fact we're paying far too much for fuel (not OPs fault, appreciate the info). Still should be below 90p mark even with recent tax increases and stupid yanks driving our price up.

They've put the price down a whole 1p. Fantastic. Good move mind, but oil prices only just decreased in the past week, which will take time to filter in.

Dunno where you get 20p from.Diesel never went lower than 94.9 and asda has never been higher than 100.9.

You all seem to be forgetting that the price of brent crude HAS increased over the past 3 months. Mid April ICE Brent Crude was $51 and reached a peak of $72 mid June. It has now decreased to around $61.75.

A lot of you need to start looking at the facts rather than using this as an agenda to fly off the handle about tax. Tax makes up a large proportion of the price but is ultimately driven by the raw product.

This is a nonsense. Each forecourt bungs in its own mixture. You can argue whether International brand A gets you 0.8 extra miles over supermarket brand B due to the superior additives, but fuel is much of a muchness. Of more importance is basic hygiene, filtering etc. You don't want a repeat of the gunk that Tesco dished out for free. Don't forget that a number of supermarkets also sell branded petrol: Sainsbury with Shell pumps and Tesco with Esso pumps, for instance.

Agreed the raw product price drives the costs but here in the UK the prices seem to go much higher in proportion to the price increase of the raw product....does that mean that the UK buy fuel at a higher cost then all of the other countries that also import but manage to sell it cheaper? I doubt it....

I am sure we wouldnt mind paying at a price that is a few pence more then the raw cost and a little mark up but selling it at £1 a litre is a rip off!!

We get taxed enough as it is and I have been watching the price of fuel rise over the recent months - the sneaky ****** have been increasing it week by week and then decide to drop it by a few pennies to fool us into thinking they are doing us a favour!!
#25
my Shell has been selling diesel and petrol for 100.9 for 3 weeks now, while tesco and the others charge atleast 2-4p more. ASDA has always been the same as the 2 cheap shell stations we have here... !! Agree fuel should be cheaper, but it is a good thing that ASDA has decided to take the initiative.

Different brands have their own mixtures but they all have to comply with certain standards all of which meet or exceed the quality required of most cars (exceptions being high performance cars that need higher octane values/ethanol).

Good news - how long before other follow suit?

My thoughts exactly - haven't seen lower than 95.9 in I don't know how long. Can smeone tell me why heating oil remains high - it seems they keep it high and ignore the price drops in the hope they will rise again and we will not notice - gits

All fuel has to be of a "certain standard".
The base fuel that Shell, Esso, Tesco sell is all basically the same (although you'll see 98 RON in some stations and 99 RON on others).
Different companies use different additivies - however supermarket fuel being "bad" for performance cars isn't true.

I drive a car that can make use of better quality fuels - it has a seperate set of maps for the higher RON fuels.
I happily use Tesco 99RON - mainly for the double clubcard points we had for ages, but price wise it's usually less than the Shell and the Shell, Esso stuff really doesn't give me any more miles.

i dont use the tesco fuel near me now i fille dup at shell a while ago and yes i paid a little more but it lasted so much longer and further i aont mind paying a littl emore there. tesco fuel goes through my car like a bad curry
#30
I haven't used Tesco for petrol for ages as their prices are always higher then both asda and Sainsburys! Its as if they arm trying to keep their prices near BP's! Boycot tesco petrol, I say!
#31
I certainly notice my car performs better and fuel last longer from Shell rather than supermarket fuel.

I have heard (no idea if true) that supermarket fuel can be up-to 5% bio-fuel. My local Shell is the same price as the supermarkets, so I always go there.

blimey! is it really this dear. Last time I filled up it was about 83p per litre for unleaded (admittedly about 3 months ago but didnt think the oil barrel price had gone up that much!).

Oil was up to £70 a barrel last week, back down to around $60 as US stocks are higher than predicted....

To be fair the price of oil went up about 40% over that period and has now started dropping again, a little. The Pound strengthended by about 20% against the dollar over that period so a 20% increase is about right.

love the fact that diesel and unleaded are now at the same level, should help increase the price of my diesel car when i come to sell it

tesco uses greenergy as their fuel supplier, which was using 5% bioethanol last time I checked. Somewhere on their website they do have the info.
Whether this is a good or bad thing depends on who you listen to really; as a fuel ethanol is very clean and very high octane, some worry that it could damage engine parts though. As others have said, all fuel is certified to a minimum standard.
#39
Petrol and diesel were both 100.9 here before this announced decrease anyway, can't wait for the 10p drops we seen last year
#40
How I wish now I had bought one of those underground water storage containers that was on here a couple of weeks back. Wait for a price drop and then go buy a nice stock :-D
