About this deal

I went into Costco Reading and shown are today/tomorrow prices. Compared to other local fuel stations, it was atleast 25p per litre saving for me and almost recovers the cost of the yearly Membership with one visit and when you fill up your car. You will save money with every visit as long as you are local to a costco fuel station.

    My local Costco with a garage is 20 miles away.
    I wait until I’m near empty and need 55 litres.
    Get there at 05.55 am.
    Fill up at 06.00 am and drive home, no waiting or traffic.
    At todays posted price it’s 19p a litre cheaper than an garage near me.
    That saves me £10.45p a tank.
    I make sure it’s when I’m passing or need a large shop.

    Costco fuel is worth the annual fee alone

    Sadly it's out of date or takes few days to reflect the actual price in store

    What are the queues like at Reading? I don't have a membership but tempted to get one just to fill up, I'm in West Reading so just one junction down.

    I was in Reading Gate Retail Park a couple of Saturdays ago and there was a queue right back to the A33, not sure if that was just for petrol or not though. I'd fill up around 9-10am during the week if the queues aren't too bad. (edited)

    If costco can sell at this price then surely others can. Shows why the leading fuel companies are making so much profit..

    If Tesco charged a £30+ membership fee to join, they could reduce their fuel prices.
    They'd be out of business within weeks. (edited)

    I wish Costco in Cardiff had a fuel station. This is a bargain price as by me diesel is currently 1.80 a litre (edited)

    Costco Cardiff need to get this sorted. I've been waiting for years for them to do it 😏

    still way more expensive than it should be and Costco are still making two or three times more per litre than they did 6 months ago but at least they are doing something about dropping the prices. Most supermarkets and nationals are currently making between 20p and 30p per litre more than normal and are racking it in. MSM very quiet on the subject

    Gateshead usually drop their prices when asda do so, generally only 5p cheaper than asda

    Wish there was a fuel station at the Leeds one. Nearest is Sheffield for me.

    They're trying to get planning permission for one!

    I know fuel is pricey but nobody can afford that! You missed out a dot in your heading.

    Great prices 
    I avoid Costco store  now as it takes about 30 minutes to get into the car park because of the cheap fuel

    It was the same price on Friday ( my local BP is 1.83 for diesel and that's not even premium ) that's why I go here twice a week for my van

    Costco seems to vary wildly across the country. Currently 144.9 / 167.9 at the Gateshead store.
    Avatar
    It was 1.65 yesterday and we noticed it as well recently Gateshead seems to be paying for all of the others higher prices. When it went down everywhere else last week we were still on 1.75

    Filled up at Southampton on my way down to Devon on Friday and swung past on the way back today to top up again, doing a load of miles over the Christmas period so the fact it saves me around £14 a tank and is a "Premium" diesel actually means its worth having a Costco membership for once.

    Shocking to see local garages still over £1.80 a litre.

    Now if only the rest of the countries greedy retailers would follow suit!

    Do you need to be Costco member to buy fuel there?
    Avatar
    I'm guessing....YES

    This was discussed widely the other day, Haydock have been charging this price for a while. Costco seem to be one of the few places that keep their fuel prices as low as possible.
  26. Avatar
    Supermarket prices should be tracking closely to this but they're sadly 20p more expensive
    Avatar
    Because they can't subsidise their fuel costs by charging customers a membership fee.
    Would kill their main business, unless you think people would pay £30 a year to join Tesco?

    Wow. We needed a Costco visit anyway but it looks like we'll be filling up the tank too.

    Great price! Unleaded round here is 152.9 atm generally. Echoing the vain wish that the Leeds branch had a petrol station!

    Keep emailing and tweeting Costco. I remember sending them atleast a dozen emails/tweets over the last 2 years and if there is enough customers complaining they might open one

    I'm afraid that for Reading area that is a good price...:-(

    Weirdly Sheffield has gone up to 145.9 according to the link. Has been 142.9 for the past few weeks. How can they be 20p PER litre less than most other places though - it’s disgusting!!

    Tesco Extra and Sainsburys superstore in Reading currently charging 148.9p
    Not quite a 25p saving if you're local to the area.
    Avatar
    139.9p is cheaper than 148.9p though.

    I paid 137.9p yesterday at the Costco in Birmingham

    Excellent price! Not a Costco member? Then not for you!

    With the price difference on this, just consider if you fuel up a lot it might just make sense to get membership as the cost of a year's fuel from costco (if the price gap is still this big) might actually pay off.

    Yep it certainly had been worth it this year.
