Beware the secret rip off at shell petrol stations
I went into my local shell station this morning to put some deisel in the car which was advertised as £1.05/ltr/ However half way through putting the fuel in i noticed that the price was £1.11p/ltr.
Looking around it was evident that the fuel i was putting in was one of those super dielsels made primarily for high performance cars. There was only one pump out ot the 8 on the forecourt that was selling it at £1.05 and you couldnt have got to it without waiting ages.
Usualy there is a choice of deisels at the pump and you can choose cheap or "super diesel" but not at this garage.
I shouted to the bloke on the next pump and told him. He didnt realise what he was doing either.
Rip off merchant oil comanies at it again
So just check the price you are paying at te pump. Might be worth checking at whatever garage you use.
