How generous of these companies to reduce the cost for us plebs. Or maybe it has something to do with the oil price at the moment.
So cheap even the Tesla drivers are voting this hot.
The price of crude has tumbled by 30% and could get even lower as a result of a price war! By rights it should be pushing a £1 a litre soon but I bet it doesn’t!

Oil prices have crashed on the international markets, as demand has dropped off a cliff with all the cancelled flights and lower economic activity due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Arab oil cartel OPEC and Russia also recently failed to agree to cut production in response, in fact they're pumping it out even faster - so increasing supply, while demand is falling.

That is cheap. Wish it was that price down here. Wonder if it will be that low tomorrow after the budget?

I bet the chancellor sticks fuel duty up tomorrow. Saving the planet,doing our bit,next generation, BS, etc etc etc
wow that's cheap .... i'd drink the stuff if i could at that price

Brent crude 1wk price change is 39%
Wti crude is 38%
OPEC is 49%

So pretty big changes much more than 15% on those ones.
Hmm, just need to work out if it's worth driving up to Cheshire from London to fill up!
Wait a few more weeks and the price will tumble further
loving this oil price wars for the short term.
Might have to think about sticking heating oil mixed with veg oil into the old diesel. Only 36p per litre now?

The price will surely go down further if no agreements will be made.
Fuel prices will drop more
Fuel prices should be below £1 a litre. No excuses for it not to be given the 30% drop...
asda was 114.7/116.7 yesterday for petrol/diesel, my local costco was 113.7/115.7
Wouldn't recommend fuel from Tesco or supermarkets. They are cheap for a reason as they add additives and put their own stuff in, thats how they save on costs and are able to sell it cheap. Whereas Shell for example have pure fuel so better for the engine, better for millege and you won't need to clean your tank as often.

Surely this is really easy to prove, got a link to any research? The logical conclusion to me is that they undercut petrol stations because it gets more people to use their shops, they still make a profit on it just not quite as high.

Complete nonsense, show me some studies backing your claim and I'll believe it. By law all fuel sold in the UK has to have the same base. This means that the fuel that shell sell and the fuel that Tesco sell is no different in its raw form. You're claiming that they taking additives out, but actually the difference is in the additives they put into the fuel, taking stuff out would be illegal.

As for better for the engine and better mileage, this is hearsay, literally nobody has tested it in labaratory conditions with a dyno. As to my knowledge this has not been done, only your run of the mill top gear style tests have been done. Of which there is about a 10% variance which is nowhere near accurate enough to guage the quality of the fuel.

Stop spreading misinformation.

What percentage of the cost you pay at the pump do you believe is due to the price of Oil? it is not as high as one would assume so the fact this Texaco has reduced the prices to the extent they have compared to others, who are feathering their prices to increase their margins, makes this a good deal for me. The Texaco dropping will cause competitors to move their prices too.

If this was complete nonsense then why does shell and BP even exist? They charge much higher prices than Tesco and other supermarkets so if the fuel was all the same it would be a no brainer and everyone would be going to these places. If you go to any specialist mechanic I'm sure they'll say the same. How else are supermarkets able to sell fuel cheaper? By law all oil paints have to have the same base but that doesn't mean all oil paints are the same? Yeah you're right it has not been tested yet but you can see the difference for yourself. I went from Aberdeen to Sheffield at a speed of 70mph with cruise control on using Asda fuel at 2am at night with hardly any other cars on the road it took me a full tank and then I had to put an additional £5 in to get to my destination in Sheffield. I did the same trip a week later using standard shell fuel at the same time in the same weather conditions but it cost me just under half a tank. How do you explain that?

I don't usually comment, especially not when it involves my background but I will clarify a few things. Working in the global retail fuel market which involves me travelling to, seeing and using fuel in other countries... I can assure you, nothing is removed. That process itself would be too expensive. Where in the UK you may see Shell as the 'Top Dog', go into the US or European markets, sometimes Shell fuel is sold for less than brands you will not have heard of.

Fuels vary widely but from a UK perspective, branded fuel tends to have additional additives which are there to prevent soot and carbon build up, sometimes these make the fuels easier to ignite so can infact make the car more fuel effecient.

BP, Shell etc, their main business is actually fuel refinery, not fuel retailing. See my other comment, hopefully it clears some of the confusion up.

Ah right ok it does make sense but im not sure why the fuel from Asda cost me a full tank plus £5 whereas shell cost just under half a tank to get to the same desitnation despite the weight of the car being the same, speed was the same, traffic was identical, weather conditions were similar, tyre pressure and tyres were the same?

It really is car dependent, if your engine is able to ignite the additives in the fuel more easily which are non existent in the supermarket/unbranded fuels, it means your engine does not need as much fuel to maintain your speed. Also wind direction could be another factor though I doubt half a tank can be justified by this.

I thought I ought to validate this so here is an example (there were alot to choose from), based off the prices today. (Be mindful this is per US gallon, not litre)

The Arco you see is the equivalent of Costco in terms of how they price but they are not membership only. The other brands are your regular fuel brands

That's a huge difference, under half a tank versus over a full tank for the same journey. If the ASDA fuel was so bad that it returned less than half your normal MPG then I'm surprised your engine would even run it.

As @SR94UK said the wind direction and speed may have had an effect. If, say, you drove at 70mph into a 20mph headwind then that's the equivalent of you driving at 90mph without any wind, and drag squares with velocity. And there may have even been a tailwind on the other journey which exasperated the difference. I'm not saying that's the answer in your case but wind speed and direction definitely do affect MPG which you would notice more on a long run.
