Filling my car with diesel cost me over £50 and its not a big car! A friend told me about this site to ensure I wasn't paying too much per litre. https://www.edinburghservicestations.com

  • Wish they had a site like that for my area. BTW, are prices really as "low" (and I mean relatively) as that in Edinburgh or is the site in need of updating? While 89.9 was achievable here a few weeks ago, it's hard to get anything less than 92.9 now around here.

    My local village station is up to 99.9p for Diesel now, their displays can't go any higher than 3 digits so i wonder what they will do :)

    Giving my age away now. My first car (Anglia) cost me £60. I have just bought a Frontera ( I call it Asda but that's another story) and filled the tank with Diesel for £74.44 at Tesco.

    Apologies---I thought this was on the Wales board:confused:

    Thanks for that. It would be useful for places I don't know, in order to get a rough idea of which filling stations are reasonably priced. However, for my own area, I notice that the pricing is more than a week out of date which at the present time makes quite a difference.

    I couldn't find a "date last updated" type comment but then found the explanation: "[font=geneva,arial][size=-3] Pricing information is compiled using monthly transactional information from Arval cards and calculates the average price at the petrol station"[/size][/font]

    It's a shame there isn't a collaborative site where people can contribute the latest prices for filling stations they visit. I know that could be open to abuse but hopefully not too much.
  • The Edinburgh site invites people to email in with latest prices - presumably they will be watching out for abuse. They also ask for site development ideas - maybe someone should suggest they do the whole country?! I live in Edinburgh so I'm already covered!!
