I just had a look at the petrol price in local Shell, and have been using Tesco Momentum (currently £1.28/L) for the last few months, purely because I got fed up of being ripped off by Shell - even though the Tesco is a lot further for me, just on principal, I refuse to use Shell anymore.

When the oil price went as low as $30/barrel (not too long ago), petrol should have gone to less than £1.00/L, but it didn't. The whole thing is a complete scam.

BP Ultimate was over £1.50 when I stopped to fill up in the Reading area a couple of months ago!

I remember the time of the blockades when fuel went over a £1, seems people just accept it now.

TBH I think I stopped looking at the prices a long time ago, on average though Petrol is around the same price as it was over 8 years ago so not too bad IMO.

It spiked pretty high in 2012 rising to around 20p a ltr more than today.

Gotta thank the Tories for this. Labour planned to have it up at £2.50/l by now.

I find you cant drive a 911 or any high performance car and worry about fuel prices you just wouldnt sleep at night Grin it is what it is and I still use Vmax the money of fuel vouchers that arrive every qtr from my shell card are nice to recieve though usually £20/25 off my next tank full and often a free coffee Thumb . I havent ever calculated what thats worth off per gallon I paid for but it all helps Grin Grin

Oil hit $80 yesterday, so expect it to get worse.

Still, working in the oil&gas industry paid for my 911 so for me it's what goes around, comes, and all that...

I work in the oil and gas industry too. A large percentage of the price you pay at the pump is tax and not what the oil companies charge.

I wish....I have only got about 5 years of experience and hence I get paid just above minimum wage Grin

WTI was 71.60usd/barrel yesterday. Blame the Venezuelans for cocking up their economy, Donald 911uk (renewed sanctions on Iran), demand from China, underinvestment in modern refineries. And a shitload of taxes ladled on top. Dont know

Super all comes from the same tank on the refinery’s. It’s only the brands that put in different additives Thumb

Not true. Momentum has twice the ethanol of v power or ultimate, its cheap way of getting the octane rating. V power has a better base, and uses some ethanol, plus
Toluene Xylene and Trimethylbenzene octane boosters. It has a much higher overall energy density

But the quality control is the main reason. You are playing russian roulette every time you put supermarket ***** in your car

Agree I had the same experience! I even put shell in my mini d and it runs far better!! Wife used to put Tesco in the disco, I made her try shell for a month and even she agrees it runs better.

Who'd have thought petrol threads could be littered as shitty as oil & tyre threads Grin

It always makes me chuckle when I read posts on here discussing discount codes etc aimed at saving a few £££s on 5 litres of oil that lasts 5000+ miles. The cost of oil represents about 1p per mile of running costs yet gets a thread every few weeks.

Petrol costs us around 28p per mile but only gets discussed once a year. Grin
