Just noticed that the 5p off per litre petrol coupons (obtainable with £50 spend) have a notice at the bottom stating you can try Momentum Unleaded for the same price as standard Unleaded. I have read reports that some people get a noticeable increase in performance and mileage. You may as well fill up with Momentum if it's the same price!

At my local Tesco in Cambridgeshire Std is currently 133.9 (amazingly) and Momentum is 138.9

I just used the 5p off a litre but I didnt notice the Momentum quote.
5p off is better than nothing but last year it meant I was getting £5 back, now I am only getting about £3 due to getting less litres for the price.
Why have we come to accept these prices, I started a boycott with friends so that we dont use the same petrol station for a month at a time, if every one did the same we might get some where?

Surely when it says try it for the same price it means by using your 5p voucher to make it the same price as normal unleaded? As Momentum is set at 5p more than standard unleaded. Therefore you are kissing goodbye your 5p a litre saving, unless of course your car needs super unleaded. Momentum is one of the best supers out there.

My point being....this isn't a deal, it's just the 5p Tesco voucher, which has already been posted on here.

How does that boycott even work?
If people did it, then some people would just not be going to one certain station once a month and others would be going to that same one, but not going to another one for the same month... the cycle would just continue.... ?

I think you've been sniffing the petrol fumes. Unless you have a smaller tank than before then the saving must be exactly the same. It is a smaller percentage of the total price but the absolute saving must be the same.

Also agree with the comments above about your idea of a boycott, the only way of boycotting is to start walking or use public transport. In fact your logic is probably making things worse as it is likely that you end up driving further and further to fill up, using more fuel in the process.

Good point JPS!
The wording states:
Try MOMENTUM99 Super Unleaded for the price of Standard Unleaded with this coupon.
It's typical of Tesco that it could be read 2 ways as usual!
I wonder whether it's 5p more expensive at every station?
#6
Why don't you just put more litres in then, and start getting £5 back again?

Petrol prices may have gone up, but petrol tanks aren't shrinking.

Hehe thanks :)

Yeah Momentum is always 5p more than RON95. My Corsa VXR loves Momentum but I am finding it hard to justify paying any more than I have to for fuel at the moment....
#8
I used one of these vouchers earlier in the week to get Momentum and it just means you lose your 5p discount from the normal unleaded. I am going to check the mileage to see whether the Momentum fuel actually makes a diffrence.

I can no longer afford to put in the same amount of litres of fuel due to the price increase.

Imagine if people in an area all stopped using one particular station, that station would really suffer & it would have to reduce there price, you then start using that station again when the price has reduced a boycott the other garrage whom would then reduce there price to match or even lower it, its starts a price war.

Maybe where I live is different to other areas but I pass at least 7 petrol stations on the way to work so I wouldnt need to drive any further to avoid a boycotted station.

Your assuming they will drop their price, more likely they will just go bust because they can't cover their overheads and the other petrol stations put their prices up because less competition


There is always an assumption before an actuatuion. Even if the petrol station closes which I doubt, it will hit the news & cause some kind of action to be taken. Wheres that fighting spirit gone in our so called UNITED KINGDOM.

And why should the major oil companies care if the profits of an independent retailer are hit ? If you want to make a protest, protest against the high fuel duties and taxes and the global oil industry where the majority of the price of a litre goes. Even the refineries are all losing money at the moment.

All franchised to independent retailers. Big oil companies get oil out of the ground, very few still have downstream refineries and chemical plants let alone petrol stations.

So this time last year you had a 100 litre tank, but now it's a 60 litre tank. Err, have you bought a new car in the last 12 months?

The clue is in getting less litres for the price, read the posts next time.
How many people stop the pump because they have reached their litre limit, most people fill up with cost, ie I want to put in so much monies worth in my tank not I think I will put 60 litres in my tank.

Then you are not getting full value for the money-off voucher. When I have one of these I try to wait until the tank is near empty before using it, to maximise the saving. And yes, I do always fill the tank, to minimise my trips to the petrol station.

OK - found your post. Now you buy less fuel; so you do a lower mileage than you did this time last year? Either that or you fill up more often than you used to?
#29
5p off, is 5p off per litre
it is YOUR choice if you want to use the voucher for a more expensive variation of petrol. so it is still a saving as the voucher says. it IS better than nothing and if you like me live in a rural area where tesco and asda etc have no fuel stations closer than 30 miles then then you would be glad of any saving like this close to you. the local big stores are seemingly going to open fuel stations but who knows when.
as for a boycott of stations it will not work cos the big suppliers will almost certainly still be selling the same amount of fuel even if you target one outlet they are probably supplying one of the stations you go to instead, so you end up just hitting a guy who runs a business and not the big fuel companies.
things are not going to get much better, look at heating oil, same thing. we don't even have a gas mains supplier so oil is really only option, this whole fuel thing sucks,,,big time.
as for the person who posted about getting less of a saving than last year, that does not make sense, i use pretty much the same amount of fuel each week and fill up each time i go to pumps so would get maximum saving on voucher, if i choose only to put in a small amount of fuel and have to come back and not have a voucher then i will technically loose out on deal. i will not use less fuel cos i only half fill my car. (some will argue about carrying extra weight, but i have to go off my normal route to even get to fuel pumps) if you fill up with the voucher you still save the same amount as last year, even if the tank has cost more to pay for.

Surely when it says try it for the same price it means by using your 5p voucher to make it the same price as normal unleaded? As Momentum is set at 5p more than standard unleaded. Therefore you are kissing goodbye your 5p a litre saving, unless of course your car needs super unleaded. Momentum is one of the best supers out there.

My point being....this isn't a deal, it's just the 5p Tesco voucher, which has already been posted on here.

exactly! This deal doesnt even exist!

no. that is not true, if you buy momentum at normal price then you will pay 5p more than reg unleaded.
they are not the same product, you can still buy reg unleaded at discounted by 5p aswell.
what is wrong with all your heads. i can't understand your thinking.

I would be interested in the result of this - if momentum gets you further, maybe it's worth doing after all? Does anyone know...?
#34
At 5p extra per litre the car needs to go about 4% further to justify it - in my case that's about an extra 2mpg or 16 miles per tank.

Tried premium fuels a couple of times before and couldn't see any measurable difference.

Changing my driving style made a much bigger difference - driving a wee bit slower on open roads. In town trying to avoid stopping at lights by lifting off and coasting up to them (modern engines use no fuel at all while coasting) and since I've changed to a turbo diesel I've found that (surprisingly) driving in 3rd gear not 4th is more efficient up to about 40mph.

i know it is not rocket science. if for example the reg unleaded cost £1 per litre (ok) and you get 5p off you pay £0.95 per litre saving you 5p per litre (still with me)
if if at the same day at the same pumps the momentum is £1.05 per litre and you get 5p off you end up paying £1 per litre saving you 5p per litre (you follow)

so anyway you look at this you are saving 5p per litre.
so therefore is it not a saving and also being a deal.

so you have seen the light and take back the above bold statement. The saving is 5p per litre regardless of product so this thread isnt a proper deal as we all stated. (5p per litre off deal already posted).
