my local tesco use to be cheapest fuel around but not lately currently 106.9 just filled up at an asda for 102.9 so a £50 spend is only a 1p/litre discount for me.....still hot deal but your really have to what fuel prices
[helper]#2
All the supermarkets can easily afford to do this now and make themeselves look really good by offering these "fantastic" discounts.....truth of the matter is, they shouldn't have the extra 5p on the price in the first place. Rip off petrol prices have to be accepted by everyone and there is not much we can really do - and they know that!

With you on that, which is where http://www.petrolprices.com/ comes in handy.

For me, the points picked up using a Clubcard Plus card usually makes Tesco fuel easily the best value, because they tend to be much in line with all the other prices round here. The 5p per litre is an added bonus, but the downside is that it means shopping in Tesco, which is a deeply unpleasant experience in our local store.

agree with above comments, but if we didnt have such a greedy goverment the fuel prices would be lower. If oil was $0 a barrel it would still cost us about 70p a litre with the fuel tax! Another 2p rise to come Tuesday aswell.

Tax isn't just spent by a government somehow on itself. It goes to pay for things like education and the health service.

Just out of curiosity, how would you propose making up the gap in revenues if it isn't charged on fuel? :whistling:

maybe less borrowing, not nationalising all these banks. less immigrants. theres plenty of things many of which im sure you wouldnt like so wont bore you.

Except, of course, that lower fuel tax would mean more borrowing, not less. And if the banks hadn't been taken over by the government, the entire economic structure of the country would have collapsed.

You could increase VAT to 20% of course, but that's probably going to happen anyway, whoever wins the next election.

So you agree with the stupid amount of tax we have to pay on fuel?

At least pretty much everybody has to pay it, including people claiming benefits! :thumbsup:

No - I don't like paying it. Who does? But if the tax on fuel is reduced, you have to find the money for things like health and education from somewhere else. It's that simple. Where do you get it from? Higher income tax? Higher VAT? VAT on food?

Good point - and the ones who cheat on their car tax too.
suspended#12
They should make the offer save 30p of a litre of fuel to actually make a difference to the way to expensive price
Just more money going to MP's new cars
banned#13
Sorry m8 but you only need to spend £40 at Morrisons for a 5p discount.
suspended#14
If people want cheaper fuel prices, which should include everyone
then everyone needs to not be bending over and accepting it, but to protest and be hard to the government, they will be forced to lower prices to almost any price
Works in other countries so it's the only way to stop this government greed

I repeat - where will you get the lost tax from? Are you happy to pay higher income tax? Or would you prefer VAT on your food?

People can cheat by running on red diesel or vegitable oil.

Just charge Tax on things that are chosen rather than needed. such as only put Tax on things such as Cigarettes, Alcohol, Bottled Water, and other products that are unnecessary/ or contribute a lot to global warming.
and then this 1. Stops people causing more harm to people and the world and 2. Still gives the government enough money to kill innocent people including their own, and afford that new Mercedes and swimming pool

How about voting in a govt that doesn't waste so much money that we need to pay high taxes?

A sensible spending govt could reduce taxes.
#19
i like how we moan about something that makes our lives easier so we dont have to use our legs that we were born with. ever since the fuel prices have been going up ive been driving my car properly and instead of getting 32mpg im now getting 40mpg and 50mpg on long journeys.

oh and i doubt we will ever get a govt that will spend less money :(
and to claim lost revenues i would scrap most of the benefits people get for being lazy ***** and not wanting to work.
#20
petrol has hit the roof .... 5p off doesnt make it a deal (not even mentioning how poor the quality of supermarket fuel is!)

voted cold
#21
Thanks for the heads up.
#22
I don't know why but our Fiat Brava hates Tesco fuel. It's ok with other supermarket fuel which is probably of the same quality though....

Only need to spend £0 at Sainsburys for a 5p discount.
Buy a shaver for £50+ use the 5p discount and take the shaver back next time - unused & unopened of course.
Works every time :thumbsup:
#24
Poor deal, fuel goes up 2p from Tuesday, most supermarkets have increased fuel locally to 102.9p, taking the price back to what we paid only a few weeks ago.
#25
Rather spend £50 on food at Lidl or Aldi , get twice as much there as Tesco .

As for fuel , I always buy Shell as it is the cheapest for my area all the time , currently 4p per litre cheaper than Tesco .

you don't have to mention them...as I'm sure there's a lot of people in the country thinking the same...now if they could just rally the vote...
#27
To be honest. You will get better fuel economy filling up at shell etc. Tesco and supermarket fuel in general is poor quality. I get about 4 mpg more when I use shell or murco.
#28
Cold. The maximum value of one of these for most people is around £3 (60 litres), and few will actually use that much.

Better to shop at Lidl - you'll save far more than £3 on £50. Get the meat from Waitrose, though.

I save almost £3 every week that these promos run and would save more but I don't spend enough in Tesco to get a second voucher...

It goes without saying if you have one of these vouchers, you should fill your tank right to the top...
#30
In my area, you will generally notice that just before these promotions come on, Tesco put the price of their petrol up by a penny or so. So basically the non voucher users will make up the money saved by the voucher holders.

Tesco are brilliant at making money, they will save you 50p off an item, but will put a penny on 50 other products, its all relative. We are like oranges, and these companies squeeze the money from us!

What happened to good old business practice? Buy a product, sell it for a profit and thats it.

But not everyone has enough money to invest £50 in fuel. At the end of the day, we buy what we use.

:roll::oops::-D:whistling:

who would that be then ha ha ha

Tories for the next govt they will see us all alright

Go to lidl or aldi, buy the same you would at tesco then put a better fuel in your car and you will still be quids in!!!! not rocket science is it..
#34
Motorway tolls are coming too (at least if NewLab or LibDems are in control).

Wouldn't mind so much if it actually got spent on improving the road system. Currently it seems they can't even keep a decent surface on the ones we've got!

My thoughts precisely. Though there is still a week to go, I have begun the hunt for school lunch stuff a little earlier this year with bottled drinks, cheese triangles, yogurts, bread sticks, and all the little tidbits that have long expiry's. Every one of these items has increased by 10-15p in Tesco since I last got these (in say early July). I have not bought any of these for Summer as they are not really used outside of packed lunches so I know my comparisons are valid - and must say I was dismayed - talk about inflation!

So instead, I only purchased what was BOGOF (so a 45% saving instead of 50% thanks to the increases) and then popped in to Lidl, Morrisons and Sainsbury's when visiting family & friends during these holidays (i.e. non-local branches). Family moaned a bit - but I reckon I saved a good 20% on overall prices from Tesco's, and aside from the regular BOGOF's, their normal prices were as Tesco's were 2 months ago.

This is not a thesis, just my own analysis, and I know I cannot do this regularly, but I am going to try and shop away from Tesco as much as possible from now on!!

They do this often with Air Fresheners, Clementimes and Apples bags, Cod Fillets, Cereals, Rice and Flour, Dolmio/Ragu, Own Brand Pizza's, Pasta, Nutella/ Peanut Butter, Jacobs Crackers, Bread Sticks (Party Sticks) and so much that I have not observed. Basically these items go up from say 44p to 65-70p over a period 2 to 3 weeks, for no particular reason. Then whoomph - you are hit with a Buy One Get One Free - only by now, it isn't really, is it?

Then, after the Bogof ends - the prices do steadily climb down again and they put up little posters saying how much cheaper they are than Morrisons and Sainsburys' with little SEL's showing the penny pinching price cuts. Sickening.

These are items I have noticed, (its quite revealing now that I read it over), and I am sure there are many more examples in freshly baked bread, Fish, Meat and Alcohol (which we either do not buy, or never from Tesco) - smacks of dodgy practice. Is it legal?

You know, you could just flog the 5p/litre voucher on eBay for about £2 - every penny counts!
#36
For some reason I can never see Sainsburys as cheaper as Tesco, although many people on here and MSE think so. If you look on MySupermarket then for a lot of the products you suggested then Tesco is either the same price, or 1-10p cheaper than Sainsburys on it.

I really wish Asda would do something like this :roll:

I can see where you're coming from. Took me years to throw off that image of Sainsbury's being more pricey - quality, at a price. No longer the case. And for the barrel scratchers, they also do a value range!

Yeah I suppose thats what marketing and building a brand is all about, so it gets customers to associate something with the name. I see Morrisons are delaying the 2p petrol price increase, wonder if the others will follow?
