I get my diesel only from Tesco or Asda and commute the same 500 miles a week with some other random miles at the weekend. My consumption varies between 590 and 530 a tank depending on traffic. This week my route had about 5 sets of roadworks traffic lights so higher consumption. So a variance of about 10%. The only difference between fuels is the additives which may slightly affect consumption but will really only help the long term wear and tear of the engine.

My point is 25% - no way due to the fuel, just driving style and traffic.

My bonus point is that diesel is different in the cold season to stop it getting thicker and clogging the engine which lowers consumption.

This happens every time they cut petrol prices and I ask myself the same question
But it ends up going red hot :-/
It's always the same.
Weeks of prices edging up daily,followed by static prices for 2 or 3 weeks while they should be going down until one of the cartel makes the move.

Sainsbury's petrol £1.14 diesel £1.15 been that price for week s so should be even cheaper from tomorrow

Because it’s cheaper today than yesterday - that’s how deals work . You may not agree about the underlying cost of fuel, but that doesn’t stop it costing less now than 48 hours ago
Tried to open the deal and thumb hit "cold" instead, why can't you change your vote on this site? Sorry

Is that because you are driving much more efficiently after buying shell, to get the same price per mile?
Get it back to under £1 a litre then I start voting with some heat.
Wow thats 20p a week saved then.
Thanks, I was going to fill my car up but I will wait now.
Good as it helps to save a bit of money.
Nice one, thanks taswir1. 😄

Don't think people care about your selfish hot vote.

A deal is when something is on offer at a cheaper price than it usually is. Thought I would explain that as you clearly don't understand, having not posted one in almost 2 years of being a member
When I read the word’s fuel prices cut I got excited, but then realised it was actually a tiny graze
Price for petrol round where I live is constantly around the £1.20 mark, however, if I drive about 10 minutes up the road it is always 2p - 3p cheaper (same with diesel but I'm not sure on price as don't use it). I remember when I past my test, it was 63p a litre!
I filled up near benidorm and paid 96p for a litre of diesel its a shame we are being ripped off by our government
My brother took pleasure texting me yesterday while traveling around Canada saying he paid £1.30 for a gallon (3.78 liters) of diesel. I tried really hard not to bite! I failed
About time, they been increasing the Prices steadily over the past few weeks. Hot deal
Way cheaper at Costco. Cold.

That would be pretty cheap. When I was in Canada a few years ago petrol was around $1 per litre. Much cheaper than the UK, but not even remotely close to £1.30 for a US gallon.

Honestly if this was true Shell would be advertising the hell out of this even if it was 5% difference
Its only 115.9 at my work (sainsburys) so doubt that will go any lower

You're making the standard idiotic claim, though even more idiotic than most, that crops up every time supermarket fuel get's mentioned.
You're making claims that Shell, BP, Esso would treat as garbage. If there were gains to be had on the scale you say, don't you think that Shell, BP and Esso would make them? They all talk in terms of possible minor improvements.
If you can provide a link to a properly carried out series of tests (and that's not any of the silly TV "motoring" rubbish), I'm sure lots of people would be interested.

In your dreams maybe
Sainsbury’s and Morrison’s is and has been for weeks £1.119 and £1.117 respectively. Asda at £1.127

So a little cheaper from tomorrow, however it’s still overpriced.

I have to disagree I have a high business miles diesel and doing the same journeys shell and BP give me better mpg than the supermarkets. Its not just additives the supermarket fuels tend to be lower octane around 95% whereas the others are around 97%, higher octane 99% can be bought but pricier
It probably is true that a better grade like Shell will give you more miles per mpg but I have a diesel energy efficient car,low emissions and no road tax payable too due to this.
I only use Asda’s diesel and on a run e.g. Leeds to London I get over 250 miles more, mainly due to 50 miles where there are road works.
It also depends on how you drive too & how you maintain your car etc. E.G. Tyre pressure and other factors. Looking after my car well too.
P.S. Iam female!

Man, you must be sniffing something that is making you believe all this crap. Do some research and read previous fuel posts, including some of mine, the fuel all comes from the same source. Some add snake oil (additives), but octane rating is exactly the same. I give up, you eeejits with too much money just keep wasting your money.

What piffle. Where are the supermarket only refineries? Where is the evidence for your claims? It's possible that branded fuel may have better detergent packages that might result in a minimal increase in mpg, but not enough to offset the higher cost.
Where's the evidence to back your claims on RON?
Does your use of % reflect your knowledge?

It's been proven look at the UK with supermarket fuel. It causes much more engine issues due to low quality fuel which isn't allowed on the continent. AA and RAC both say its due to low quality fuel
