UK Fuel Prices

Summary

If you fill up with £75, a 1p per litre price differance is about 50p.

  • Location: Motorways are much more expensive ( +14p )
  • Location: Supermarkets are little cheaper ( -3p )
  • Region: Northern Ireland is the cheapest region ( -7p ), everywhere else is similar (within 2p).
  • Brand: The supermarkets are cheaper, but except Shell and BP, not by much
  • Brand: Shell and BP are the most expensive ( +4p )

Tax - Fuel Duty and VAT

The formulae for the price of petrol is :

   ( {net price} + 52.95p {fuel duty} ) plus 20% VAT 
 ⇒ ( {net price} x 1.20 ) + 63.54 p 

Data Quality and the actual price

Data quality is a bit suspect in places (we're talking about you, Tesco).

It may take some time for updated prices to feed through to our data feed.

It sometimes pays to check the price at the pump is the same as the price on the Big Sign. Even with well known brands, which I assume are franchises. Sometimes, they forget to update the Big Sign...

The process of marking a fuel station as a 'motorway' one is a guestimate :)
