Has anyone else noticed that the two remaining filling stations in Dawlish are about 4 pence dearer for Diesel than surrounding areas. Filled up on A38 yesterday at 136.9. Is this why Dawlish needed a supermarket. Even Trago are a lot cheaper and thats quality branded fuel not supermarket crap.
Here we go again its so simple if you want cheaper fuel then go and get it. So you drive to Exeter to save 4 pence per litre 60 litre tank saving 2..40 cost to get there and back wear and tear tax insurance fuel etc etc get the idea. So the filling stations know this and realise that any motorist with any brains will realise its cheaper in real terms to fill up in Dawlish but the choice is yours. Average car doing a average 12000 miles per year costs 52 to 60 pence per mile to run so if fuel within 10 miles was 18 pence a litre cheaper and you purchased 60 litres in real terms you would save 80 pence being conservative i took running costs at 50 pence per mile
Glad I use the train 13p a mile to Exeter, just takes 15 mins to St Thomas and no traffic. £2.60 return on a devon card. What lea says makes perfect sense.
Whatever happened to local business supporting local people. who in return will support the local businesses?
Case in point, I drove past a local butcher today in Torquay. Their prices included £10 per kg rump steak, £10 for 5lbs of pork chops or £4.99 per kg, steak mince £2.99 per kg. a brace of pheasants for £8.00 .......... I know where I will be stopping off next time.
Thank you Nelson ..just been visiting friends. The new rail bridge is smart!
Just been around Bristol and Bath and saw petrol price varies by 5p a litre between filling stations on the same road just 3kms apart, and both places busy so even where there is plenty of competition price variation is amazing. Cheapest was ASDA 128,7p a litre which they gtee to keep I think till the new year.
Coming back through Pinhoe today I noticed the price of petrol at Sainsbury's is 136.9. At Sainsbury's, Dawlish, it is currently 140.9. Why???
Cassandra if you read the second post you will see why its 4pence a litre dearer its as plain as the nose on your face
Morrisons here I come (on 14th January).
What makes you think morrisons fuel will be cheaper i would bet money it wont be more than 1or 2 pence a litre cheaper it will be priced 1or 2 pence per litre cheaper than Tesco
Every little helps.
If you're a keen Sainsbury shopper, £60 spend gets you 10p of a litre at the moment
Cassandra fuel at Morrisons will have to be 5 pence a litre cheaper just to break even for arguments sake it will cost you 3 pounds to drive to Morrisons if you fill your tank with 60 litres saving 5 pence a litre you will save 3 pounds. Take into consideration your carbon emissions and damage to the enviroment is it realy worth it
