This is a rare mechanical fault which can happen due to someone putting their card in at "pay at pump" and then deciding to pay at the kiosk. Tesco have a maximum amount of £60 for each pay at pump transaction, and therefore regardless of what vehicle you are driving you cannot get fuel to the value of more than £60 when paying at the pump. Tesco are aware of the problem, but they obviously have to be vigilant as to who they refund. You temporarily lost £77 (£92-£15) however Tesco lose £107 (£92+£15) once you've been refunded, as you are entitled to your money back as well as the fuel under Tesco policy. Tesco lose more and are therefore keen to correct the problem. This should happen in the 12 weeks after Easter where Tesco are aiming to change all their "pay at pump" garages to "chip and pin", which will then allow you to see how much you are paying at the pump.

This vehicle is a 2004 VW touran diesel. No problems except filling up at Tescos.

Tesco is excellent, offering consistantly low prices, which do not fluctuate as often as other garages.
Best by far

I think Tesco is doing a good thing by rolling out its 99RON Super Unleaded and at the price. I would like to find out how it stacks up with keeping engines running smoother and cleaner, compared with the only other proper Super Unleaded - Optimax. Perhaps Mr Clarkson will be willing to help on this one??

Mr. Clarkson dealt with this issue two or three months ago and his findings were essentially that high octane fuels only benefit high performance cars, otherwise they are a waste of money. Three asides: (1) In the 1960's I used to buy 101 octane fuel for my motorcycles. Sadly, this has now disappeared in the U.K. (2) Whilst I struggle to find the recommended 99 octane fuel for my Bentley 'Turbo R' (most 'high octane' fuels in the U.K. are only 98 octane) my Mazda 'Tribute' (3 litre, 4WD) has been tuned for 91 octane (great for Russia's 73 octane or 92 octane supplies) and so I constantly waste money by loading it with the U.K's 95 octane fuel which seems to be the lowest octane (cheapest) fuel available. (3) Having just returned from Egypt where fuel is 9 pence a litre I am struggling to come to terms with paying 96 pence a litre for fuel here. I suppose that the Chancellor has to find money from somewhere to gift his promised multi-billion pound gift (over 10 years) to the third world. Surely charity begins at home?

I travel all over the country on a weekly basis and I have noticed the fuel at Wolverhampton Tescos is always cheeper than Catterick Tescos this should be one standard price.

written by Vera Robinson on 29/05/2005

Beware of the Tesco Petrol Station in Essex When I was there no prices are visible from the road. The forecourt is often gridlocked when I visit, due to not having a dedicated petrol till. You have to queue with other shoppers.

“I disagree with the two negative reviews of Tesco...”

★★★★★

written by andrewlam67 on 17/04/2005

I disagree with the two negative reviews of Tesco Petrol. The main complaint in both cases is that the fuel might be cheap but it has damaged the reviewer's cars.

It is no secret that Tesco's fuel stations are supplied by Esso. So you need not worry about getting "inferior" fuel when paying a penny or so less for a liter of fuel.

I might also add that Sainsbury's fuel stations are supplied by Shell, so the same points apply to Sainsbury fuel as well.

Where as there petrol might be suspect, there security is nil, at Tesco Swansea Fforestfach
<br>I had my TomTom Sat Nav stolen from my car whilst I was at the back filling up, and with a passenger sitting in the front passenger seat (blind).
<br>The only camera to witness this was inside the shop, and showed only his lower body in his actions.
<br>The Police have confirmed that the security is very lapse at this service station.

I take it you work for them as I used a Tesco station for some time and didn't notice until I used a diferent one that out of £20 i was getting 70 miles as everywhere else at the same price I get £105 which sounds about right for the car I drive. Answer that.

written by cyberwally on 13/12/2004

Reading the other reviews, I don't agree that petrol from Tesco is any different to other petrol stations. I've run my car on it for many years, and apart from it saving me money and getting those extra Clubcard vouchers, I haven't had any performance issues at all.

I am sorry to hear that people find tesco fuel a problem? i have been using their fuel in my Vauxhall 2.2 feul inj Sintra for over four years and have never experienced any of the problems that are being described. Are the people sure that it was Tesco's fuel and not a problem with their own vechicles? Tesco are working hard to help provide the service that families like mine need, good avordable fuel and the points that we earn from staying a loyal customer help pay 'almost pay' for our anual holiday. Wedone Tesco's keep up the good work and we will endeavor to use you a loyal customer and friend of Tesco.

I have just read with alarm the review of tesco petrol stations. My car was fine today until I refilled with Tesco petrol then it conked out after 1/2 a mile. It's now in the garage being repaired. I don't know yet if it was this petrol but two independent mechanics said it looked like a fuel problem. DO not use these cheap fuels. I usually use BP or Shell and have no problems.

I have used Tesco fuels without any problems for 3.5 years and would be confident to recommend them.
<br>
<br>Do you realise that Esso supplies Tesco with fuel?
<br>Esso is a premium brand and Tesco sells Esso fuels at low prices - not to mention you also get club points.
<br>So unless there is contamination at the Tesco station, I do not see where the problem comes from.
<br>Do you have final confirmation that it really is a fuel problem?

I agree but it's not just Redditch, Stevenage too. In Leeds it's 3p cheaper than Redditch, why - because there isn't a Tesco there! Bradford too is very cheap but the motorists have so much choice, that Tesco daren't increase to 105.9! Why do the people of Redditch stay so loyal to them?

“Well what can I say - Tesco petrol is cheap. Cheaper...”

★★☆☆☆

written by eddiedraycott on 02/06/2004

Well what can I say - Tesco petrol is cheap. Cheaper than any where but does it work out that cheap really.

Well I dont believe its value for money. It doesnt perform as well as other makes. I get less acceleration from Tesco Unleaded Fuel. It also doesnt get you as far as other brands like BP.

Normally I use BP for a full tank it cost me £38 driving average I got 350 miles.

Oh and Tesco is not meant to be good for engines, so it could mean your car wont last as long... yikes!

Esso was also rubbish.

After using Tesco it cost £34 I think and only got me 300 miles. make of it what you will.

BP ultra cost me £40 and was the best by far, high top end, Quicker acceleration and lasted 375 miles...

Generally all supermarket fuel are of the lowest ron rate thats why there cheap.
Many people don't see the gradual drop off in economy or performance. I use these low grade fuels myself, but use a fuel addative by Forte when i get my car serviced. This reduces the damaging effects of using these fuels and maintains my cars mechanical efficiency. By doing this i get the best of both worlds.
