    Petrol Price Checker

    I've been using this website since I first started driving a few years ago. I stopped using it for a while when petrol prices seemed to plateau and were the same at most places but now that everywhere is slashing prices this a great website to check on your phone when out and about to see what the best price for petrol/diesel is near your location. It just occurred to me there that I've never seen it mentioned on HUKD before and couldn't find it in a search so hopefully it'll help someone. There's nothing worse than filling up your tank then driving past somewhere even just 1p cheaper on the way home! You do need to sign up but it's free. You get email alerts but I just marked them as spam and check it when I need to.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned that it's always a couple of days behind and therefore does not give accurate prices.

    For the record, I've been using their site for years now....stick to the cheapest petrol station on your preset alerts and you can't go far wrong (_;)

    i've used this website before too, but because they were never updated regularly, the prices would be different when u go there. Although now is a good time because of falling prices to atleast know who is offering the cheapest. Potentially it will still be at that price or lower.

    is there still a delay on updates?

    and do you get spammed?

    I only get an email once a week, think every Mondays. Never been spammed since I've been with them for a year.

    Thanks justy. I had to change my email address which I'd had for years, about 8 months ago because someone betrayed me and my inbox was littered with never ending spam, so I'm ultra careful now X)

    I just checked and it was 8 months and 2 weeks ago. Good guess eh? X)

    No problem
    Haha it's always best to be careful with anything over the internet, that reminds me I'm still waiting something from you X) or is it going to be sent as a birthday present
    Lol very good guess to be honest I still get quite a few spammed emails, even some mentioning about Viagra pills oO
    Not sure where from but it all stays in the junk folder.

    You can go to your account settings on petrolPrices and pre-set to how often you want updates on prices! which is what I've done. its great for me because it always appears just before my fill comes round

    It's always been pretty accurate for me, maybe they're updating it more frequently now?

    Nah... It's still pretty slow on the updates....
    That said....It's still the best app out there for this purpose. Daily updates would be better....although (given the current situation with the price of oil) maybe hourly would be better X)
