I noticed as I was passing on the bus this morning that diesel is down to 102.9 Petrol had also gone up to 89.9. Could this be Diesel and Petrol closing the gap a bit?

TESCO 104.9 for Diesel but if you shop there and spend more than £50 you get 5p off a litre - thats about the cheapest - actually may be cheaper now because I last filled up before the VAT reduction...

note of caution, supermarkets buy the crappiest of the crappiest fuel, shell is premium fuel and better all round, take a look at fuel reviews(google it)

Do we really need these rubbish threads everytime saves a penny on a petrol station - COLD

Yes.........And their ham and cheese baggettes at only £5.99 are such good value,while you are at your friendly Shell forecourt why not have a bag of crisps.....only 79p........and wash it down with a coke...only £1.49 (50cl)

...sorry I thought the deal was for the price of fuel, surely no one purposefully heads off there with the sole thought of buying lunch...:thinking:

Tesco have an extra 5p off when you spend £50 at my local. So this was the first time I actually filled the car for less than £1 a litre....
You think it is cheap.. but it was less than that a the beginning of the year...

what has any of the above got to do with the OP ???
THANK - YOU OP HEAT ADDED.:thumbsup:

Original Poster

I thought I was posting a new milestone. I know it was much cheaper last year but it isnt anymore. Any discount i see as being a good thing. With regards to food, why would you buy food in a forcourt anyway? Thats like saying Getting a meal deal at tesco is so expensive when I could go to lidl and get a meal deal for 99p. Its a good price for petrol. The best I have seen in a long time and what is better you dont need to spend £50 on other things to get it at that price. It is the standard price. Its like people saying post the real price not the cashback through quidco, the tesco deal shouldnt be seen any differently.

Anyways rant over.

Regards

Because it mentions cheap petrol...and I was simply pointing out that in certain circumstances you can get it even cheaper.... ah well never mind I thought I was on a website discussing good value for money and deals etc - didnt realise I clicked on "lets not talk about anything but the OP forums" again...

no offence intended - the tesco 5p voucher thing is/has been well publicised on this and other forums but is not much use to people who fill up a car/van/truck daily for work. ;-)

As far as i have understood the VAT reduction has been applied to fuel, however the Chancellor has increased duty by 2p. If fuel continues to drop this means that we will be paying a greater %age of tax/duty than before the reduction. :x

Very true.....and this was a stealth tax snuck in via the back door.

All the ranting over 2.5% coming off but nothing about the 2p duty being added. Technically speaking all fuel should be the same price as it was before the VAT drop.

Give with one hand and take with the other.

I remember unleaded being 44.9p a litre at the height of the Gulf War and everyone was up in arms over the hike from 36.9p. Where are the complainers now?

Everyone has got used to paying over the odds, and that's the worry.

Fuel at the moment should be 45p a litre cheaper, and Diesel 60p a litre cheaper as a result of the Crude price being very low, at the same levels of the Gulf War infact!

Bear in mind also that VAT goes back on at the end of 2009 and that will still include the 2p duty hike added from today. On the back of that duty is due to rise for 2p a litre from October next year.

Looks like the motorist will pay for this country to come out of recession!

Have you completely ignored basic economics?

None taken - totally agree but as the thing was cold anyway I was kinda pointing out why it may be / another way of getting cheaper fuel (granted most people will know about it already but if one person didnt then my work here is done )

What you should do though is put lots of empty open containters in the back of the truck - fill the truck using the voucher then sneakily also fill the open containers as well - then you may have fuel for a couple of days assuming you don't explode in a gigantic ball of flame in the meantime....

p.s

for anyone thinking about this - don't use the open containers as ash trays whilst driving !!!

we already do. fuel duty went up 2.3p and vat drop takes about 1.8p off the price.

Shell supplies supermarkets from its refineries. Same fuel as it supplies its own retail outlets, BP etc. Please let this myth about substandard supermarket fuel die, folks.
