ASDA Summer fuel deal - 105.7p unleaded 106.7 diesel!

265
Found 1st Aug 2016
Noticed this today, from 1st August ASDA have promised to fix prices of Unleaded and Diesel at 105.7p and 106.7p per litre!

"
Drivers will pay no more than 105.7p per litre on unleaded and 106.7p on diesel at all of our 272 petrol stations.

The move comes just in time for holidaymakers getting ready to head off on their travels, from the Scottish highlands to the South coast, meaning there will be more left in their pockets to spend on holiday treats."

Filled up this morning at this price!
Thanks for this, I'm touring in uk this month so this will save me a good few quid.
I don't know why but I find Asda tesco fuel doest last asking as other the established brand's own stations

Should've gone to spellchecksavers
OOooo thats so nice of them,what a lovely gesture,they must love their customers to do this ?

Or is it because the price of oil has dropped from $51 a barrel to c. $44 barrels right now. A 10% drop and they only knock off a penny or two.

hooray henry

Couldn't really care less if it's cheaper to fill up...
Finally going in the right direction again

Marketing con. You`d save more instore by buying a buy one get one free box of cornflakes.

​It obvious that sky is on a tablet or phone, it's because of Android /spellchecker that the sentence came out like it did.

On the subject of fuel quality all the supermarkets buy their fuel on the "spot market" so the quality of fuel will vary (but not by much). Motion lotion pricing is still a bit of a rip off although the government is mostly responsible as it taxes by the litre not by the cost of the raw material.
Typical. Always in time for the english holiday.

Heat added anyway

False economy - you'd better off filling with a superior quality fuel given that Asda fuel is a much lower grade. Shell V-Power Nitro Plus, for example, has higher octane, so it gives more torque at low revs and more power at high revs. If you use the greater torque at low revs to upshift earlier then you can enjoy upto a 10 per cent improvement in economy. That pays the extra cost of the fuel. The other benefits of a clearer fuel system (valves and injectors) comes free of charge.
I did notice that prices had started dropping very recently.

High Octane Shell costs around 115.9p where I am... The amount my GTI drinks, I assure you it'd cost a hell of a lot more to use the premium fuels
Supermarkets fuel will destroy your car. You'd rather go to shell. Pay a small amount more for a higher quality fuel which will give you a few more miles to the gallon but won't mess up you car either.

Why not just post the Shell promotional leaflet that told you all this ********?

Meanwhile here in the real world, if fuel is 10p a litre cheaper right now at ASDA than it is at Shell stations then I, along with most other people, will make my savings right now (average car about £5 - £8 a tank) over some hypothetical, unproven in the real world, unspecified savings that Shell claim I might make in the future (as long as I adapt my driving style to accomodate Shells' 'super-fuel').

No - I've personally tested this and not only notice the performance difference, but when coupled with Shell vouchers and using a cashback card, then it works out cheaper: I get 9% better mpg for 7% extra cost.

Supermarket fuels are cheaper for a reason: lower grade fuel.
Same price in my local Morrisons last Saturday when I filled up

All pump fuel sold in UK has to pass EU specifications!!! So supermarket fuel will not destroy your car at all. 'Premium' fuels may exceed EU specs and have better detergents or better anti knock properties but you are paying for them.
just think back when Shell introduced 'Formula Shell' that was unleaded petrol but there was no British Standard for unleaded! Shell didn't tell people it was unleaded with a lead substitute. They also charged regular or higher prices for the 'Formula Shell' and due to UK tax laws they paid less duty and thus more profit on the petrol! Subsequently it was proved that 'Formula Shell' was destroying engines (lots of Rovers if I remember).
Hence why pump fuel now sold in the UK has to pass EU test.

Sorry for long post, I used to test fuel and lubricants and it always bugs me when people say XXX brand of fuel destroys or damages engines.

Best advice is vary where you buy your fuel from. If you can feel the effect of premium fuel, can afford it, your vehicle specifies it, or think you will be keeping the car for many years then the extra cost may well be worth it.

I'll stick with my local jet garage who match the prices of the local supermarkets.

Ignorance is bliss - Don't remember this then?

Sure supermarket fuels have to pass "EU specs" but it's a lower grade fuel, resulting in poorer lubricity and poorer economy.

You conveniently ignore key points: Firstly, premium fuels like V-Power keeps the engine fuel system clear of hydrocarbon deposits that can cause damage costing thousands as noted previously by somebody else. Secondly, it gives more torque at low rpm and if you use that to shift up earlier then you will be using less revs for the same performance and will enjoy an improvement in fuel economy as I've mentioned and benefited from for years. Thirdly, all modern engines are certified for mpg and CO2 in the ECDC lab tests on the best fuel available (to give them the best chance). Fourthly, you also get more top end power, typically 10% more, and if you want to use that rather than the increased torque you can enjoy better performance but, of course, by using more revs you won't get better fuel economy.

But hey, keep using cheap fuels if you wish to.
always wondered how the price to customers can fluctuate daily even though the delivery of fuel is weekly or longer!

Yes I will, thanks.

OK, so you are now becoming rather boring and tiresome.

The link you posted quite clearly states that the petrol was contaminated with silicon at the refinery/storage stage. This has nothing to do with the quality of the fuel itself, contamination of goods happens in all industries (horsemeat lasagne anyone?).

Admittedly if I could afford to drive (never mind own) a 'supercar' I would probably put 'Superfuel' in it. By 'supercar'; I mean Aston Martin, Bentley etc. or very top-end German/Italian. I cant afford one, so I dont and it doesn't matter. IF I could afford one I wouldnt give a toss about fuel costs anyway, and I dont think I would worry too much about adapting my driving style to make sure I get the best MPG either.
I drive an ordinary 7 year old average family car that doesnt give a flying **** what I put in it, or how much it costs. It just works - and it does about 45-50 to the gallon and thats all i want it to do.

That's not exactly answering the question, is it? Plus for the price of a bottle, often £2 in my local supermarket, it offsets the cost of filling up with premium fuels/
Well I use a mix of 3 tanks or normal (usually Asda as a) Its closest and the only one with 24h pay at pump. b) cheapest) to 1 premium (Either Shell or BP but on occasions Tesco99).

This gives me a mix of good price and some extra cleaning (probably). While the engine defiantly sounds happier and probably produces a little more (unnoticeable) power I find I get less miles per gallon (guessing engine is running a richer mixture). As I claim expenses from work I pay lots of attention to mileage and fuel usage.

I also use redex for two tanks of fuel before service times (twice a year) of which one is before its MOT.

This routine has served me well for many years and will continue.

Wrong given you can often get superior economy as a percentage for the marginal cost. But don't let that stop you...

I won't, but thanks for your concern. I drive around in the wife's American, petrol drinking POS. So an extra 5mpg is neither here nor there for me.
