filling up vehicles - the impact on fuel price

Customers are missing out on reductions in wholesale fuel price

The last few weeks have been unfortunate for motorists who buy fuel at their local supermarket as unfortunately whist the wholesale fuel price has begun to reduce, popular retailers have failed to pass on the reduction to their customers.

It goes without saying, that as regular customers to the likes of ASDA, Tesco, Morrison’s, and Sainsbury’s, we often trust the fact that we can buy diesel or petrol at the most cost-effective price. This is because the supermarkets order fuel in much larger quantities and so they can buy wholesale fuel for a much cheaper fuel price. This contrasts with the independent garage businesses who don’t have such a capacity and so refrain from ordering as much.

Whilst some independent garages have lowered their fuel price, sadly on this occasion, this has not been the case with the major supermarkets, which has disgruntled customers, especially at a time when the cost of living is already so high.

Considering this situation, the message is clear to petrol and diesel customers that, by buying local you not only purchase better quality fuel, but you will be cared for as a customer whilst continuing to support local independent businesses as opposed to the big supermarkets.

Reducing consumption also help with monthly fuel price budgeting

Here at Stourbridge Automotive we can also help with lowering the cost of fuel consumption.

Our technicians recommend planning your journey ahead to make the most direct route. Also why not car share and drive your AudiBMWMINI, Mercedes JaguarLand Rover or Range Rover, a little slower than usual to conserve fuel.

Finally, Stourbridge Automotive recommends booking for an engine cleaning and fuel treatment service using highly approved BG products. Within the service, our workshop team will carry out an engine performance restoration flush, replace the oil and oil filters, and then apply the treatment.

The BG EPR treatment not only gives the engine a good clean but also improves performance, which subsequently lowers fuel consumption. To find out more about getting the most out of your monthly fuel consumption, please contact us or see our website further details.
