    I filled up my car at Asda's last week and it was £1.15.9p a litre, I went back yesterday to fill it up again and it's down to £1.13.9p!

    With everyone pissed off with the price of petrol, it's nice to see them dropping the price. Whether it's a temporary drop or it's going to stay that way, who knows. But for the moment it's a welcome drop. :thumbup:

    Lets hope other companies follow suit ...TBH i'm wary of supermarket petrol, the cynic in me is wondering what they cut it with to make it that cheap lol.... Last time I filled up it was 18.9 a ltr at the Shell garage. That was the cheapest around here, even supermarket petrol was 22.9

    My place (Shell Garage) is competing with Asda at mo and ours is £1.14for petrol £1.17 for diesel. I would much rather go to Shell because they have better fuel which is why its normally more expensive cos shell put additives in their fuel meanwhile Asda don't.

    I've filled my tank up twice in a row at Asda's now, and yesterday I drove over 250 miles on half a tank! Which is unheard of in my car! I'm usually able to do between 300-350 on a full tank of fuel.

    I just don't think Asda's fuel is very good, its not as refined. But its maybe cos I work at Shell.... :)

    Have you seen the price of Extra Unleaded... highest its been at ours was £1.27 a litre!

    The price of fuel doesn't affect the mileage you get from your car!

    I agree... And it's the same with all supermarket petrol, i'd rather pay the few pence extra for good quality fuel. Jon works as a mechanic and they have so many cars coming in with engines knackered up by cheap supermarket petrol, it's not worth the risk imho....

    I thought perhaps the quality of fuel may affect the Mileage...?

    The fuel is basically the same (comes out the same tank in the refinery ;)) the only difference being the Shell fuel has tank additives... but it also started out the same It doesn't make a significant difference to economy, it's in to keep your engine running snoother in the long term... if you're getting better economy, you're driving in a more economical manner, not going over 3k revs, keeping to optimum speed for your cars performance. The optimum speed makes a massive difference to what you get out of a tank.. sadly I like to go fast so never manage this :D

    I think the petrol prices are much to high but I don't know if it will ever go down. Yet another reason why I still haven't learned to drive and still take the bus.

    I think that its not going to go down because of supply and demand.... I don't know anyone who is saying.. when it gets to £1.30 I'm going to stop driving..... they could put it up to £5 a litre and people would still buy it!!!! Fuel companies are in with a winner on that one!

    Its like cigs innit..... hmmm when it gets to a fiver I'll quit..... mine are nearly £6 for 20! :rolleyes:
