    BP Ultimate Ł1.43.9 lt

    Is BP Ultimate really that good?

    I was confronted by massive queues into town yesterday so had to give Tesco a miss for fuel so popped to a local BP garage, i thought the price on the pump said Ł1.13.9 lt as the sun was shining on it, wasn't till i got to Ł20 that i saw the real price of Ł1.43.9 lt

    Is it that expensive across the country, can't believe people buy it if it is, just filled up at Tesco tonight with Super (only 97 octane, they dont sell the 99 octane here) for Ł1.11.9 lt.

    I'm paying Ł1.16.9 around my way for V Power & Tesco 99.

    Ł1.43.9 is ridiculous!

    It normally is an expensive garage anyway (white post in Yeovil) i normally steer well clear of it, well it was for Diesel as they were normally 10p a lt or more than the supermarkets during the summer but their unleaded is only 2p more at the moment so i gave it a try and especially as Asda doesnt do super and tesco is just in the worst place to get to in town, never again though.

    I work for BP, and there is no way that garage should be charging that for Ultimate, when the prices were are there highest Ulmate wasn't even that expensive (i know i was using it back then). It may well be a private dealer franchise, but thats not really an excuse.
    Heres the number of our head office 01908 853000, ask to speak to someone in retail pricing and make a complaint. You never know, you might get something out of them.

    Was that Ultimate or Ultimate 102?

    For standard Ultimate it's extortionate, for 102 it's a bargain!

    I just use the normal unleaded, is there really that much of a noticeable difference?
