I've come to the conclusion now that the petrol stations just make their prices up, such is the lack of consistency in their prices!

Hopefully its not like the Argos & B&Q 15% sales, whereby alot of the products are put up in price before the 15% offer.

rubbish fuel, mpg drops to the level where is no savings at all.


I now avoid Tesco's fuel for the same reason, ever since I overheard a conversation between a fuel delivery driver and a forecourt/store manager whilst filling up last year.They basically suggested that they keep additives to a minimum for their normal unleaded fuel, to save costs, so it only just passes the necessary quality standards, and so he wouldn't put it in his car!.From what I understand, all fuels in their crude state, start out the same, but at the refinery stage, different additives are used depending on the customer's requirements, and this is why fuels from different supermarkets will vary.As the deliveries are just carried out by contractors, it means that just because you see a Shell lorry delivering a supermarkets fuel load, doesn't mean it's Shell going into their tanks, it just means they're using a tanker with the Shell livery.I don't know how bad Tesco fuel is, but I'd rather not risk shortening the life span of my cars engine, for the sake of saving a few pennies.I now generally fill up (actually we haven't filled up in ages, I should say top up!) at Sainsbury's on the way home occasionally, or Morrison's, when we shop, or one of the mainstream garages, whichever happens to be cheaper at the time.

Thanks for the heads up on the petrol prices.

Yep, this store is expensive. I can only afford to visit there for very specific cheaper items like value ground coffee and, lately, the value nappies. You need a big budget to shop in Sainsburys.

Absolute rubbish. There's always going to be differences between the big supermarkets with some items cheaper/more expensive at one than the others, but generally Sainsbury's is very competative

i myself live in an area where you have the choice of sainsbury's or icelands to shop at.
and sainsbury's is also the cheapest place to fill up at a price of 135.9 a litre so a 5p saving to me is very much welcome.
if i came up to you and offered you £2 you wouldnt tell me where to go would you..

Just filled up at Sainsbury's like I do every week was 128.9p per unleaded litre +5p off makes it 123.9p, so bargain + Nectar points. I always shop at Sainsburys as they have a huge range to choose from.

Cold just like all these other spend a packet save 3% on your rip off fuel deals.

I Only use Shell unleaded and Sainsburys Super Unleaded in my car and yes it makes a big difference to performance and gives 38mpg instead of 34mpg.

So you dont use a petrol station because you "overheard" someone saying it wasnt good, rather than trying it out for yourself and seeing if it made any difference? And do you really think that the fuel at morrisons or sainsbury's would be any better? The general care/maintenance of any car (servicing, the way its driven etc) will have more of an effect on the lifespan of the car than the type of which supermarket you buy your petrol from. (_;)

Always wondered what that super unleaded was all about. Is that difference in mileage enough to justify the higher price though?

Seems to be worth it,extra 10% in mpg and better performance for an extra 3p per litre or 1-2% cost.

No, I wouldn't base my petrol buying decision just on a conversation I overheard, and infact prior to that, we usually used to fill up at Tesco, as it was on the way.But it was overhearing that in combination with the fact that I'd realised that I was getting better overall performance, and economy with the Shell or Morrisons fuel, which made me think that there must be something in what they'd said.So based on my personal experience I would say yes, the supermarket fuels do vary, but yes, I also appreciate that other factors like servicing, the way you drive etc are just as important.

Hot -5p per litre at the cheapest petrol station in town, which happens to be my most conveinent station (literally on the way home from work with no detour at all) and also at the supermarket I do my local shop at...

Can't say better than that.

And as to different quality petrols giving better MPGs that really doesn't matter when your missus drivers the car like its stolen! Think that wastes more mpgs than any type of fuel can make up ;)

Sorry to say completely true. Take your shopping list to other stores and buy the same items. Your shopping bill will fall dramatically.

just to let you know. a few months back in an ingear article they tested fuels for best mpg.
The supermarket fuels came out on top (but not by a lot)
Basically they found out there isn't alot of difference (pennies worth) in the fuels (basic and super duper ones) if you drive in an economical way.

Tesco Hoover Building have excellent prices for Diesel, however, it's a 15 mile round-trip for me to get there and I'd probably lose the savings I would have made :( Unless I'm going that way, I tend to go to Shell in Uxbridge as it's only a 2 mile round-trip and it's only a couple of pence more, plus there is the Shell Drivers Club which gives points that can be redeemed for money-off vouchers.

Not completely true. I do my shopping in whatever supermarket has the best price for a particular project on whatever day. This means I will get part of my list from each supermarket, and quite a bit comes from Sainsburys. Some even comes from Waitrose.

As for this fuel, I am never surprised that the price of fuel at my local Sainsburys always goes up by 2p per litre in the couple of days before this deal becomes active. The 5p a litre saving is more like 3p.

I use fuel from various places and do a regular commute everyday and I can say that according to the in car computer that works out consumption, it doesn't seem to make the blindest bit of difference where the fuel comes from and the distance I get is always about the same. As ErrorIndicator says in the post above....

This is better than a kick in the teeth, if you shop a Snotburys and would get your fuel there too, otherwise, it's probably not so hot.
suspended#38
I have a Tesco, Sainsburys and Morrisons to choose from to do the shopping, all are within 1 mile of each other. I end up going to Sainsbury a lot and don't find a huge difference in the prices. All supermarkets have their own special offers, really depends what you buy.
#39
Massively cold; why is anybody voting hot? OK, worth it if you already shop at Sainsbury's but their prices are so much more than Tesco / Morrisons / Asda that you will lose cash in the end (check The Grocer if you don't believe me). Marketing gimmick like Nectar cards.
