Good find.

They must have a dodgy batch of fuel.:w00t:

No V-Power though!

I filled up at Total earlier, didn't see any signs for this.

Being a little sad i gave this deal 10mins thought to see if it really is that good of a deal. Here were my thoughts (only thoughts - i am not attacking this thread);

Superb if you always fill up at Total, but.. if you do more than 3 miles in a week to fill up at a total garage (easily possible) rather than just stopping at a petrol station on route you could of afforded the years breakdown cover in the first place.

Resources:

Average running cost per mile (i took the cheapest!):
http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/running_costs/

Top 20 breakdown packages (again i used £25 no intro discount):
http://www.money.co.uk/breakdown-cover.htm

Other thoughts:

*Dont forget running costs are average, - yours could be lower (or higher!).
*Intro deals can bring the cost of breakdown down significantly
*Check to see if your already eligible for breakdown cover - ive got AA and RAC "free of charge", one through my bank account, the other through a motor club i am a member of.

[SIZE="4"][COLOR="DarkRed"]I've not voted either way[/COLOR][/SIZE] - but for me, to detour to Total every week would be around 4 miles on a weekly top up so not worth it.

I have a total right outside my workplace, which usually has at worst the same prices as everywhere else...

Unfortunately, my car is a Jap import, and the 97 Ron super unleaded they sell isn't good enough to run my car on :|

Just saying there isn't a total near you would of been enough


no not really, because for those members of the site who arent savvy enough to spot it, the poster pointed out some key areas.

1) Breakdown cover can be had very cheaply (£9 for a year for RAC after quidco)

2) This only represents a deal if you dont go out of your way to get it, or normally fill up at total.

Some people might think "Cool; free breakdown cover" and then drive to the their nearest total, going out of their way to do so, and incurring themselves unnecessary expenditure.

In the same way I havent voted either way. It's something for nothing if you fill up at total normally, or as the op rightly pointed out, if you have a long trip to go on and dont wish to have breakdown cover for a year.

But if you're worried about breaking down, surely it makes more sense to go for a cheapy years breakdown cover and carry on getting the clubcard points on your petrol...

Great post jimsdeals, very insightful. Saves us all doing the home work or getting stung just by jumping straight in. Have some rep.:thumbsup:

Shame you didn't consider like for like policies though ;)

I got AA cover with help of Quidco/MSE for £10 - later that week it became £9 through same method but with RAC. Why bother with 14 days when you can have a whole year at this price?

Many people would expect more than the basic cover provided for the two prices you mention. This policy from Total is not particularly good but it does include homestart.

Lol, Homestart! We once broke down in the driveway but didn't have Homestart, so pushed the car (a large people carrier!) along to the end of the road and called out the AA. After telling us the car was bu**ered, they very kindly towed us home :-D:oops:

Spot on - I have experience of the very same! :thumbsup:

Members of the AA without homestart are required to be over 1/4 mile away from their home to be covered. That's one heck of a long way pushing a large people carrier!

With AXA assistance, that distance is expanded to 1 mile.

As long as you are outside those distances, or have homestart cover, then normal recovery rules apply. i.e. they will attempt to repair the vehicle roadside if possible within 1 hour or will tow the vehicle to a nearby destination of your choice whether that he home or to a local garage.

Theory (the written) and reality (the actual) are very different things. We are speaking from real world experience! I was 6 doors away from my house and he got us started (alternator stuck).

"In theory, theory and reality are the same thing....In reality they are not"....:whistling:
