UK fuel pump: Drivers can secure free fuel at supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsbury’s


Drivers can secure £10 worth of free petrol or the money off a more expensive petrol fill at a range of top supermarkets this week. Shops which are offering the deal include major chains such as Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s. Asda and Co-Op.

Other common petrol stations such as Esso, BP, Shell and Total are also offering the cheap fuel deal.

However, the deal is only valid until midnight tomorrow (31st October) or after 10,000 drivers have snapped up the offer.

To secure the discount, road users need to simply keep their receipt which proves they have spent at least £10 at the pump.

Once they have the receipt, road users need to create an account with money-saving site TopCashback.

The Money Advice Service says drivers can save on their fuel costs all year round with a range of simple tips.

They urge road users to drive their vehicles more sensibly with less harsh braking and smooth acceleration.

They say that well-maintained tyres are essential for economical driving with lighter vehicles also key to saving fuel.

The AA says that dropping speeds from 80mph to 70mpoh can save road users 25 percent.

Back in January, petrol stood at 127.33p per litre before slowly falling over the following weeks and months.

Diesel prices have also remained consistent since August at 118p per litre with costs at 118.08p for the second week running.

Speaking in September, RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said that further price rises would be “unlikely”.

He said: “While it’s always difficult to predict what’s going to happen with fuel prices, imminent rises would now appear pretty unlikely.

“With the summer travel peak behind us and with ever more coronavirus restrictions being introduced, the demand for fuel is likely to wane.”
