Getting the Cheapest Fuel Prices – Tips

Petrol stations such as Repsol are usually more expensive for petrol and diesel as compared to supermarkets and hypermarkets such as Carrefour.

Avoid motorway fill-up stations which are often a few cents more expensive.

Any garage and petrol station nearest the airport is also likely to be adding a few more cents, so try driving a bit further before filling up!

Note that in Spain the supermarkets are usually closed on Sundays and late at night.

People have reported problems when using the automated pumps because of their credit cards being issued in the UK or elsewhere so try pay with notes.

    1. Hi,
      It would be helpful to date-stamp the entries for fuel prices when they are received as there is no way of knowing how recent these prices are at the moment.
