Breakdown and insurance company the RAC has issued a guide to motorists with tips on finding the cheapest fuel. It recommends that people become familiar with the filling stations close to where they live and work, and take advantage of supermarket ‘price wars’.
“Supermarkets – as well as other fuel retailers – run loyalty card schemes, and while they might clog up your purse or wallet, they can come in handy in cutting fuel costs. The more you fill up, the more points you’ll accrue – you can then exchange these for vouchers off your next fill-up,” the RAC says.
“Some credit card companies offer cashback for spending money at filling stations. While it might not actually save you money at the pumps, it will offset higher petrol or diesel prices by putting something back in your account. Just remember to pay off your account within the month or savings will be cancelled out.
“However, the main way to save money on fuel is to drive efficiently.”
