5p off per litre of fuel with £50 spend at tesco

Just seen this in the paper,spend £50 in store at tesco and get 5p off per litre at the petrol pumps.I was due to do my shopping today but think i'll wait now until tomorrow

guess who went yesterday ..... typical

damn i just spent £75 yesterday!!

Im pretty sure that you can buy something instore for £2+ then get £50 cashback and still get the 5p off coupon as it means that you have spent more than £50 on the receipt:thumbsup:

No that wont work you have to spend £50 on shopping so it does not include cashback:thumbsup:

Ive always wondered if you actually save anything......For example put £50 of petrol in and you save £2.50 approx. But you have really made your car heavier and then burning more fuel. What do you think?

I agree...best to run on fresh air, better for the environment as well :whistling:

yeah but, if you have a big enough family you'll need to spend £50+ on shopping to feed them therefore its win win

Thanks for the link to the extra info.

I know I'm a bit cynical but I can't help but think that Tesco will probably make a profit out of this because many people will forget to return with their "One free voucher" later. :whistling:

ahhh so thats the reason all my local tesco petrol stations went up 1p a litre yesterday!!! Always the same when they do these promotions.

Good idea that, although it gives Tesco the opportunity to not stock the item in future meaning you never get your free item.

Excellent!! I have a rather fuel hungry drive to London next weekend!!

I thought Tesco always offers 5p off fuel....I seem to always receive these vouchers with my online shopping anyway.

BOGOFL seems to be a decent idea, although I can imagine they'll have to give out millions of vouchers.

Tesco always more expensive for fuel in my area so this usually works out at 2p off. Dreadful service station too - always some empty pumps so long queues; dirty pumps; rarely any gloves, etc. Local Sainsurys has to compete with Shell so it's cheaper.

just done my shopping today! should have waited until tomorrow lol

or save yourselves a potential repair bill.......supermarket fuel is cheaper because they dont contain the detergents that modern engines require, and branded (often at the same price) does. Of course it does conform to the required basic standard for sale and use, just that with say Shell, you get less bang for yer bucks :whistling:

Shell often sets the base price in an area and it's true that supermarket fuel may have fewer additives, but a lot of BMW drivers were unhappy a few years back when branded fuel (Shell in particular) was blamed for wearing their engines out by 30K miles! Something to do with the plated cylinder lining (rather than steel liners) being worn out by the sulphur content.

The supermarket fuel criticism is frequently raised but is there really any evidence to support?

My local Tesco is 4.9 per litre dearer than my round the corner Shell garage , the food is also a lot dearer than my local Morrisons .

With modern diesel engines it is the exact reverse. City diesel is low sulphur but it was the sulphur that lubricated the diesel injection system.

It has been suggested that some supermarket diesels do not contain a very effective replacement for the sulphur & hence will cause diesel engine problems over time.

Considering tesco is the uk's latest supermarket this deal is only useful if you go anyway.

My local tesco has no fuel pump and nearest tesco with fuel is like 4-5 miles out so for me this isn't useful

Ours does exactly the same too.........every time there is one of these promotions they increase their petrol prices by a coupe of pence per litre.

Reaching Outtttttttttttttttt

Touching Meeeeeeeeeeeee

Obviously from purely a numbers point of view you're 100% correct. 1 litre of petrol weighs approx 0.72Kg, so using your example 50 x 0.72 = 36Kg
Let say your usual fill is £20 so we're only talking about approx 20Kg over and above what you're normally carrying, but when you consider an average car weighs > 1000Kg we're talking small numbers in the grand scheme of things. On the other hand if you're serious about cost implications of carry extra weight you should never offer anyone a lift
How I see it is how much do you value your time? If each fill takes up 1/2 hour of your time do you think it's worth doing the 2 fills - detours you need to make (also wear & tear).
My tuppence worth.

I've used Tesco diesel a couple of times in our Diesel and it rattled like an old tractor by comparison to the shell fuel,

I also got roughly 6 miles less per gallon (approx) using Tesco's dishwater *cough I mean fuel...I wouldn't put it in my car again!

i,ve only got a small fiesta so with 5p off i save about £1.50, hardly worth going through the hassle off queuing up to pay, i usually pay at the pump.

Exactly.Always the 1st to raise price of fuel in my area and last to lower it. Wish everyone would boycott them............ :thinking:

Went shopping today and Kingston Park's fuel stations' being refurbed or something so it'll have to not matter.

As for Asda's cheaper, they're all much of a muchness. You'll find something cheaper in Asda one week, then Tesco's cheaper the next.

And save another 3p a litre (even without vouchers) by buying your fuel at Asda too!

Yep agreed. Same reasoning is applied to instore bogof on grocery items. The 2/3 weeks before they are about to run one, they inch the price up 20-30% then offer a bogof, which in reality is more like 25% off (instead of 50%) AND they get you to buy 2 of the product.

The BOGOF or BOGOFL is cack as we all know (but all subscribe to), in reality, if they can run bogof deals, why can't they do 1/2 price deals only?

Of course they could - but they're a business, not a charity!

The whole thing is a big game but sites like HUKD give the interested consumer a bit of help.

bummer just been today!!!:x

Yep precisely. It annoys me when people talking about ASDA as a 'nice company' and you got Tesco which is a British success story.

Do you really want to help the giants of the world Walmart? I know I wouldn't

Does this apply to LPG ?
