Morrisons ups the petrol price war

With unleaded and diesel prices reaching new highs it is great to see that the supermarket seem to be starting a bit of a pricing war. Last month Tesco were giving away 10p off each litre of fuel, but now Morrisons are offering an amazing 15p a litre if you spend over £60 in their store. For the average motorist this will save around £7.50 on a full tank of petrol, so it is well worth taking advantage off. Read more »

Santander Credit Card

Here's another great way to save money on filling up with Petrol. Get the Santander 1,2,3 credit card. Not only do you get 1% cashback at supermarkets, and 2% a department stores (not sure what that applies to), but you also get a whopping 3% cashback for petrol purchases. So with unleaded at around 130p/l, thats equivalent to almost 3p a litre discount! Read more »

And of course, if you are driving slowly you will have more time to react, and do less damage if you do spin off the road!

On most cars there is a small arrow next to the petrol fillter symbol, and whichever side it is on indicates the side to use for filling up your car/ Very handy if you have a hire car, or perhaps are just forgetful.

Tesco 10p of a litre of fuel

Thats around £5 of a full tank of petrol! And to cap it all they are also offering a further £5 off your next spend over £40 in store. Read more »
