Asda cut the cost of unleaded petrol by up to 2p per litre

Good news for motorists: Asda cut the cost of unleaded petrol
We’ve cut the cost of unleaded petrol by up to 2p per litre – meaning motorists won’t pay more than 105.7p per litre at any of our 272 filling stations.
Diesel remains at a national price cap of 107.7p per litre.

The price cut means unleaded moves back to its traditional place below diesel after two months of diesel being the cheaper fuel grade.

Unlike other retailers who work on ‘average prices’, Asda is the only retailer that has a national price cap on fuel at all our filling stations, ensuring every single one of our customers knows the maximum price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.

Ha, they put the price up by 1p yesterday

I filled up yesterday and diesel was only 105 in Eastbourne.

Great, very nearly filled up yesterday.

This. My local Asda had unleaded at 107.7 and Diesel at 105.7 yesterday.

A little start, now they need to bring it down to its real value!

supermarket fuel is bad..........hahahahahahaha

Seen people moan about £5 less than rrp on things in here but get hyperactive over 2p....

supermarket fuel is bad..........hahahahahahaha


Yea, but it ok once in a while ......

I love it how people jump on the bandwagon by saying supermarket fuel is bad for you. These people DO NOT have first hand of bad experiences and just like to copy those that say its bad for them.
Ok listen. My car is 10 years old,I have a Diesel Car and im approaching 200,000 miles. I have NEVER had an engine fault,I get the SAME mpg in Asda/Morrisons as say the Shell garage and pay approx £5 less in the supermarket each week which is a saving of £260 a year or £2600 in the ten years. My supermarket saving pays for my yearly fully comp car insurance.!!!!!! I have always used supermarket fuel and my engine is in very good condition.

So for those that come on here and tell others that supermarket fuel is worse for your car then will you do us all a big favour and explain exactly what supermarket fuel has done to your engine in the same comments please. I can only imagine the real reason is that you are not looking after your own car properly with irregular servicing. I have backed up my story why supermarket fuel is ok to use and is not bad for your car.

Asda fuel is the worst I've also seen 105- 107 for esso or bp recently would rather pay the extra couple of pennies for better quality fuel

Explain?

Our local Asda petrol station/mini mart on Vallance Road, London E1, is at 105.7p today...

It's same stuff, Comes from the same refineries, Only difference is the additives used.

Morrisons fuel is awful. It has a lower RON count and is mixed with biofuel (yes, even the unleaded) and caused problems with shuddering and misfiring in three family member's cars, including mine.

Tesco/Sainsburys are both supplied by Flexigrid... it's the same stuff.
Asda's fuel seems pretty decent to me as well.

Asda fuel has gone down so many times that surely they must be paying us to take it away by now?

Fuel is fuel so heat added for the fact it's cheaper. On a side note I've always find I get the best supermarket miles from Sainsbury's and Tesco Esso fuel.

All 'standard' fuels ("FuelSave" at Shell) are 95RON, as set by the relevant British Standard.

Does that mean Asda has put the diesel up then as it was 106.7 the other day at Asda Tipton

well i paid 1.011 at Huddersfield the cheapest ever

105.7 @ Asda Wallington/Croydon.

Been using Asda for the past 4 years to fill up, after initially being loyal to shell, made no difference. MPG is the same, and the engine is sweet and running smooth as ever.

I do know the performance fuel is slightly different, but standard diesel/petrol, there's no difference.

let the people who think its bad fuel go somewhere else and pay more, its upto them to believe that. Ive never had an issue in my life with Asda fuel and I save so much money a year

Given that the cheapest petrol in the UK is currently 102.9p and UK diesel is as low as 104.9p, this is not such a great deal. Our local Asda (Leamington) has been at 105.7p for petrol for ages, and has just put the price of diesel up to 106.7p

Brent crude oil has been hovering at about 10% cheaper per barrel for 3 weeks now compared to what it was at the start of September, but still no change at the pumps. Someone is making a LOT of money by sitting on the price falls.

There is nothing wrong with it, but I knew people would make a comment like that so thought I would get the ball rolling, I personally use Asda fuel all the time and never had any issues

Tesco have followed suit on the unleaded

lol,you go waste your money then, there is no evidence those fuels are better than supermarket fuels,

Base fuel on every single fuel sold branded or otherwise is the same, and comes from the same tanks at the distribution centre, the only differences are the additives.

Sometimes additives increase octane, but end up less efficient as a result

There are no clear tests that any brand/unbranded fuel is any better or worse than others, just peoples opinions, i expect if they did the 'pepsi challenge' (so to speak), most wouldn't tell the difference.

If it bothers you, put your own additives in, it's probably cheaper anyway

Regular servicing is better than expensive fuel

well said JayJay. More people jumping on the bandwagon because they 'heard' someone else making comments regarding the quality of supermarket fuels when infact they have no first hand experience themselves but people who DO use supermarket fuels have NEVER experienced any issues.
Let them waste their money whist im more than happy to save a few pounds a week which pays my car insurance in full!!!

Actually there is evidence that the fuels from some supermarkets are lower quality and actually if u want to mess up ur engine go right ahead that will end up costing more in the long run for a few pennies per litre.

Each to their own but generally I manage to find fuel at the same price as the supermarkets and have the peace of mind it's decent fuel. Also it generally seems to last me longer which means in the long run actually I'm better off but thanks for the advice

kidneybean. 10year old diesel car, 200,000 on the clock, over 80% fuelled by supermarket diesel, saved £200+ a year and car has never had an issue.
Is my an exception then do you think?

Nah, saving those pennies and getting more regular servicing still wins, those pennies add up.

Also, please can you show us this Evidence? thanks

Edited by: "jayjayuk1234" 23rd Sep 2015

Exactly. Tell him to go to the nearest refinery and watch the Supermarket tankers fill up from the same tanks as BP,Texaco etc. Its just a different additives package they put in which has to comply with BS anyway.. If you regularly service your car you should never get any issues from any petrol station you fill up from. If there was ever a case that supermarket fuels mess your car up it would be a rare case and that is probably due to poor servicing anyway.
This Kidneybean guy doesnt seem to have any first hand experiences himself but still chooses to pay extra for his fuel...and his gold plated hdmi cables.

OR just run your car for FREE youtu.be/PZX…kzA

Why not just use good old red diesel? 50p a litre, better mpg and better for your engine

seen it cheaper many places.

Exactly, it ought to be around £102 for unleaded looking at the oil price. big rip off as usual.

Except the pound is weaker.

So should be dearer.

If the pound was still at $2+ it would be well under a pound by now, but it isn't.

Eh?
Let me get this straight. The pound has not moved against the dollar during September 2015. At the start of September 2015 my local Asda was selling petrol for 105.7p. The oil price has fallen by 10% since then, in both dollar terms and pounds. And the price of petrol at my local Asda is still 105.7p

What has that got to do with the fact that it has been age since the pound was worth $2?

How's this a deal when they've just put the prices up and idiots are actually adding heat

Banned

Have used Tesco / asda / morrisons and sainsburys fuel and all do the same or better than shell
