Why is this going cold? Best price I've seen from BP in yeRs

And in many parts of Scotland too, if anyone hadn't noticed

Surprised thought they were still paying off for the spillage, they are always more expensive than everyone else.

Isn't that the going rate for petrol/diesel nowadays?

shame it's not this price in n.ireland

people are voting cold as they think all fuel is the same product - look at the number on the pump handle next to the grade next time you fill up, higher the number the better the product and the better for your car/mileage.. bp fuel is the best out there, followed closely by shell. as for supermarket fuel , might as well pour mazola in there. this is a great price- hot!!

Asda petrol (not diesel) had been under a pound for a while now

​Are you talking about the octane? Tesco is equal to or above BP. It is other additives that make BP fuel better in my view. I voted cold because I find petrol price posts very tedious, I am hardly going to drive miles out of my way to save 2p a litre on fuel

I never listed to the debate before about supermarket fuel being crap compared to fuel companies own stations. But a couple of weeks ago I filled up at Morrisons as I had vouchers off fuel from buying gift cards and lord is my dash showing a much lower mpg. One one particular motorway journey I usually get over 70mpg showing, today I did the same journey and it was under 60mpg, no difference in traffic level etc

Even around town it had previous always got into the low 50's but its mid 40's recently, so looks to me like Morrisons fuel is getting much lower milage than Sainsburys / Shell which is where I usually get fuel from

More tosh.........

muffboy

Ok I must be imaging the numbers on the dash are way different on the first occassion ive used Morrisons fuel in a long time

Maybe your just the font of all knowledge on fuel

muffboy if you dont drive distance or drive a low end car you wont notice much difference. I do know about fuel ( not a font of all knowledge). if its not for you no problem. but refining the product is where its at when it comes out of the ground. products like redex don't work with bp/shell fuel as they add nothing whereas supermarket fuel it benefits. The only reason I care about this is so many people don't get it, you can save money by paying slightly more at the pump in terms of mileage and car maintanance. as i sais earlier look at the number on the pump handle. your choice,

ps jase.2 nice to see somebody has actually given it a go and checked. good effort sir

How ludicrous to suggest the supermarkets sell inferior fuel, it's all from the same source/depots!

Someone should tell the BP services near me as they have it as £1.21, it is a services I suppose

no more talkee to silly person. google/read a book/any other source. you're embarrassing yourself. before you comment again post a link to a source (yourself excluded) where what you state is correct - good luck on that one. (not trying to be nasty but i genuinely know what I'm talking about rather than your guesswork). pals though.

I am not trying to claim something that isn't, hence it falls to you to post some proof of your ridiculous claims!

Haven't you noticed the refineries behind your local supermarket?

im so bored with this. if you dont agree fine. no problem. just don't put off other people without knowing what you're talking about. so far as i can tell you've dismissed those on here who have backed up what I've said while supporting your stance with nothing. I work in the fuel industry and get no gain from promoting bp/shell. what i say is factually correct, end of story. peace

-146, guess I WIN.

going with comments sir-easy to push a cold button. still waiting for facts. but of course you don't have to provide them even though i've given you my line of work. genuinely i'm done, you can lead a horse to water etc. have a nice time, looking at your name i'm guessing i've been trolled but so many people don;t know. pay at shell/bp get more miles and its better for your car . I know muffboy doesn't agree and if you do low mileage or have a sub 1.2l car its correct in some cases. everyone else give it a go, final comment.

just to add to the above sensible comments, there is difference between supermarket and non-supermarket fuel and its easy for everybody to test himself... usually on the same quantity you get 3-5% more mileage, sometimes even more..in addition the fuel pump, especially on diesel car, has more wear on long term on cheap fuel...

Muffboy. You are wrong on 2 fronts. Take petrol. Hydrocarbons of the correct volatility and octane range go into the gasolione pool. Despite the mixture being suitable for petrol, not all the compounds "burn" as well in an engine.
If you take ASDA petrol as an example, they take tanker loads from a depot or refinery with whatever additive is provided by the supplier. That additive will vary by the week depending on the supplier as well as the source of the gasoline.
Esso still has a refinery, at Fawley I think.
BP sold their Grangemouth refinery to Ineos and sold their Thames refinery to Petroplus.
So, the major suppliers will still be selling their fuel with their own high spec. additive
Sometimes, supermarket fuel will offer the same performance and mileage as major brand fue.
Ask yourself why the major companies spend so much money developing additives.

​Stop offering bad advice muffboy, if you don't like the fuel don't buy it and leave it at that. Your wrong advice could fool other people into believing you and buying inferior fuel based on your opinion.

Blimey, it' not hard to understand. The base fuel all comes from the same refineries and different companies then add different additives. Some end products may help improve mpg and other characteristics.

I have a mate at work who insists on putting Shell V power into the tank of his Ford Fiesta. He also buys Krispy Kreme donuts that cost 4 times the price of supermarket own brand ones! Moral of the story is the marketing boys know there are suckers at every corner willing to buy into the brand/hype. A few of them reside on here by the sounds of it.
-182 and counting.................

Do you know what a "muff" is?
You clot!

and there it is muffboy - your a tightass. finally we've got to the bottom of your issue. why pay for quality and look at the long term benefits when you can save a few sheckles. hehe. still as long as you're happy on your amstrad computer (it's a computer, only suckers would buy alienware - they're both computers) or happy watching your argos basic power hungry tv (why pay for a samsung? they're both tv's) before you slip into your comfy sleeping bag to count some zz's (only a fool would buy a bed) then it's all good. those marketing guys sure haven't got you.......

How wrong you are. I have the best of everything I desire, big house, big car ( BMW ), big T.V. ( PANASONIC ).
It's all about value for money sunshine, hotukDEALS.........paying over the odds for fuel and donuts is for fools sucked in by the marketing.

At least he knows how to start a sentence with a capital letter. Still what good is education today?

He's actually right in some aspects, a brand name doesn't always mean quality, it sometimes means paying well over the odds for something identical but without the branding, and the company laughing their bloody heads off, thinking LOL what a 'sucker!' For an example, we really appreciate you paying a premium for nothing more than simply advertising our company on your jacket ...and in such a predominant way. Long may it continue and our profits soar. Thank you.
The truth hurts doesn't it?
