I would use it fairly often and haven't noticed any reduced mileage and I do checks fairly often. I use there or Groody mostly.

Stopped getting my diesel there ages ago as I always seemed to get less miles from a full tank. Stopped getting it at Tescos too, found the car down on power a little after filling there. Tend to stick with Maxol or Topaz now.

Have also heard this so never bother going there. Usually go to amber on the old cork road or apple green if i'm out that way.

I never really notice a difference in petrol stations to be honest. I usually get about the same mileage out of a full tank no matter where I go.

Low Price Fuels (Kilcornan) was closed yesterday afternoon when i passed. Last week they were 143.9 for Diesel and 155.9 for petrol.
They didn't last long if they are closed. About 2 months.
It has to be dodgy fuel at that price, the man who has/had the lease is from Monaghan, so you can guess where he is getting the fuel, well thats my thoughts anyway.

€1.549/l at Amber, Old Cork Road, today at lunchtime.
€1.599/l at Topaz, Thomondgate this morning.
€1.600/l at both Singland/Groody this afternoon.

I haven`t seen 5c gap in a long time.

Damn, I`m starting to doubt myself. I`m wondering was it Diesel that was displayed on top? Amber usually have the petrol on top don`t they?

And a 10c difference if you compare the cheapest on your list to the 164.9 at the Topaz beside the Regional hospital.

Sorry lads,
In a liberal democracy "cartels" don`t exist, you all need to upgrade your vocabulary to version LibDem2.012. The accepted term is "oligopoly".


Here is a definition:
ol·i·gop·o·ly/ˌäliˈgäpəlē/

Noun:A state of limited competition, in which a market is shared by a small number of producers or sellers.
