Cheapest is 1.349p (ie £1.35) for diesel and £1.25 at Asda Bromborough - all other supermarkets, are 1p more.
It'll probably be 1.35/1.26 next week.

Wonder what is making it ascend to the heavens this time?

Garage opposite the oval entrance has a neat trick. At least one of the pumps has 2 diesel and 1 super unleaded which is 10p a litre dearer than standard unleaded. Once youve pulled up its a bit awkward to try and move to another pump.

On some cars you get noticeably more mpg out of super unleaded because of the higher octane so the price balances out, also super unleaded is restricted to 5% methanol which is the limit before it damages older vehicles.

Unfortunately the premium diesels are over 20p a litre dearer than standard diesel and don't produce more power, they just have enhanced cleaners in them.

Doh, I meant ethanol not methanol.

Ressurecting this one as I drove past the A41 Tranmere Shell and Diesel was £1.52.9 FFS!

Has anyone spotted a more reasonable price at Bromborough Asda, Bidston Tesco or Woodchurch Sainsburys by any chance?

BP made highest profits in eight years, good to see the "free market economy" working well for the world's population - not!

Nice one, thank you.

Shell Tranmere prices below, it is stupid, the Esso isn't any better.

Petrol - £1.48.9
Diesel - £1.52.9

As my bike only runs on E10 that means another 10p more, so takes its to 1.64.9 or £7.50 for gall and you wonder why all the prices are going up, maybe if every one stopped driving around for a few weeks the powers that be would see a lack of tax coming in and oil companies seeing profits going down, it would also help the Planet!

Works both ways, during lock-down the Petrol companies saw a lot less profit because of reduced consumption so this drove the price up to partly re-balance their profits.

If somebody has a commodity you need, they always have the upper hand.


E10 is the maximum ethanol content, there is no guarantee if it is E0, E5 or E10 that is supplied.

Some engines are not tolerant to E10, I don't know any that are not tolerant to E0 (although some old engines still need a lead or lead substitute whatever the E number).

Octane rating (RON) is critical in some petrol engines (especially turbos where a high octane will damage the engine), for some years now this has been shown less and less at the pump.
