Free 14 day car breakdown cover when buying 30 litres of [email protected] UK

Filling up at TOTAL now gives you more than just a tankful of fuel. We're giving you the option of FREE 14 day breakdown cover whenever you fill up with 30 litres of fuel (or 10 litres if you ride a motorcycle).

Your policy will protect you whether you have car trouble when you're out and about in the UK or when you're at home. It also includes recovery of your vehicle if the breakdown assistance team can't repair your car. And all of this is free for two weeks.

Of course your free cover could last a lot longer. Simply fill up again with another 30 litres of fuel to benefit from a further two weeks of cover.

All you need to do is visit any participating TOTAL Service Station and fill up with at least 30 litres of fuel (again, 10 litres for motorcycles). Use our handy Station Finder to locate your nearest TOTAL.

What a [SIZE="4"]HOT[/SIZE] Deal!!

Shame for me that I've just renewed my RAC a few weeks ago, but it's got to get hot in here with this!! :thumbsup:

There's 3 of these stations around me and my wife gets hers from there all the time.

Great offer unfortunately both my bikes only have 18 litre tanks! :oP

i really should read the whole post. 10 litres for bikes! :oP

hmmm... clever idea..

Wonder if cover begins immediately… Just have to get buy some extra cans, then pop down when I next break down

HOT from me!

Well that cuts me out! Smart cars either have a 22 litre or a 33 litre tank, but unless you run the 33 liter tank right down to the point whrere you are about to run out which might not be any where near a Total petrol station!

As I have one of hte early Smarts which has a 22 liter tank it is not even worth trying!!!

Regards,

John

A couple of petrol cans will give you an additional 10 litres :whistling:

Got to love the typo on the FAQ:

"What do I have to do to get the cover?
- Buy 30+ litres of any fuel (101+ for motorbikes
) ...

Can I delay the start date?— The cover starts from when you text your details to the number provided. You need todo this within 24 hours of purchasing the fuel. You will receive a policy number andbreakdown telephone number within 2 hours of sending the text.



So much for thinking I can change my service station and get the cover for the whole year

Total need to offer something because their petrol is the most expensive around my area that is Stevenage,
they are always more expensive than Sainsburys, Tesco and Esso.

Interesting and HOT

I'm sure many will argue agaisnt, but isn't the total/shell etc gasoline better than the supermarket stuff?

Everyone seems to argue they get better MPG out of non-supermarket juice.

Tesco diesel for me seems to be a lot of water! It just goes really quick. Considering it's only a penny more per litre, an full tank is only about 55-60p more....but I get a 1p discount per litre on shell diesel. so it's negligible!

Total diesel isn't too bad I find. Shell and BP is the best for MPG I find!

To whoever owns the Smart......how do you cope with a 22 litre tank!? Even if you managed 60mpg you would get about 290 miles from the full tank!

I drive a little pug with a 2 litre turbo diesel, on the motorway, I can get upto 70mpg if I take it easy and 60mpg if I drive normally on the motorway which gives me a range of around 750 miles on a full tank!

Isn't there British and International standards that petrol and diesel have to meet. I honestly think the whole better MPG from nonsupermarket fuel is rubbish. Wherever I fill up I tend to get almost exaclty the same miles from every tank of fuel. No doubt somebody will have evidence to disprove this now and make me look silly. On my old petrol Fiat Brava 1.8 I only used to get 320 miles from a full tank of fuel. Was about a 50 litre tank iirc.

but i think total petrol is more expensive
and with cashback offers you get a whole year free (fatcheese gives £28 cashback with RAC cover which cost £28)

There is lots of variables on which fuel is better. Such as engine, perception, calculations, heavy foot, distance travelled, temperatures, road conditions etc.

The ECU in my car gives a engine load in percent. The lower the better. When the engine is warmed up to 80c (normal operating temperature for my engine) tesco diesel places a heavier strain on the engine on idle.

So that suggests you have a 60 litre tank. 750 miles using 60 litres of fuel only achieves 56.83mpg.

I'll second that, I can get 700 miles out of a full tank on my HDI 306 before the 6 litre reserve tank light comes on (if i stay below 80).

Bought some fuel from total today but didn't get a number to txt, just the receipt... does anyone have this?
