Tips for saving money on fuel

When it comes to saving on fuel and comparing prices, Compare the Market has these tips for motorists:

Timing is everything

With petrol costs often following a fuel price cycle of up to three weeks, the key to getting in at the right time is identifying the trend in your area. Picking the days when prices are lower in the cycle is the easiest strategy to cut down your fuel costs long term. By regularly keeping watch using our fuel price app, you can easily see when the prices are at their lowest.

Better quality fuel for less

Another advantage of comparing fuel prices is that if you find a better deal on petrol, you could put this into a higher-performing fuel and come out equal. So essentially, you’re getting improved performance for the same price. Play it smart and compare your fuel with us and see if you can save.

Prepare for an emergency

You might want to consider storing fuel in case of an emergency. This can be a smart idea, especially if you live in a remote area outside the capital cities. However, keep in mind that there are specific ways to store fuel safely.

How do I compare fuel prices near me?

It’s simple! With our Simples app (available on iPhone and Android), you can compare petrol prices at fuel stations near you by entering your postcode or location and the type of fuel you’re looking for. We’ll then display some fuel prices near you, and you can compare which option is best for you. You’ll also see the address of each service station, which makes it easy to track down a deal.
