  • 79.9 at my local Sainsbury's today.
    AND you get a voucher for 5p off per litre if you spend over £50 on your shopping, so even better :)

    I would rather walk than use BP fuels!! :-/
  • Good news that prices are dropping even if it is only a temporary reprieve. I was a big fan of AApetrolbusters.com which gave all prices within a picked radius of your post code. It has been dropped by the AA as too expensive. Anyone know of a similar web site still working?
  • To be honest Tony i use the BP more than any others near me, sometimes they're a penny or 2 more expensive but 99% they're cheap enough... plus it's on my way to work

    The BP on MY way to work is STILL charging 85.9p for unleaded - the same rip-off price as a month ago.

    I don't know wth they think they are doing - other BPs in the area have already dropped to 81.9p.

    I found another website that offers a similar service to Petrolbusters, although it's not as good (and it's not free).

    https://www.petrol-prices.co.uk claim to tell you where the cheapest petrol is within 10km (6 miles) of your chosen area every Friday, by text message.

    The drawback is you have to register on a premium-rate £1.50 per minute phone number. It reckons the average call would be 2.5mins, or £3.75. For that you get a Friday alert for 16 weeks, so the cost works out at about 23.4p per alert. The website says that the maximum cost to call and register is £5 (about 31.3p per alert).

    I reckon if your car has an average 7.5 to 10-gallon tank (appx 34 - 44 litres) you'd have to fill up from empty at least once a week AND save 1p per litre to be sure of saving money using this site. If you only fill up from empty every two weeks, you'd need to save 2p per litre, etc. This doesn't take into account the cost of travelling further to get cheaper petrol though!

    No idea if they also give premium unleaded or diesel prices, but have sent them an email to ask. Also have not tried the service, but I'm interested to hear if it's any good. Maybe Martin can arrange a discount on the subscription cost for us?!

    PS This is my first post here - hope it's of some use!
