A simple strategy to saving up on your fuel is keeping those pesky dockets handy at the end of your grocery shop. Whilst it may appear they only exist to clog up your glove box, they feature handy deals right on the bottom of your receipt that could help you save on your next visit.
The upfront fee may appear daunting, but you’ll end up getting more for your buck with an RACQ membership when shopping at select servos. With Puma, you can even save 4 cents off!
The app store is now booming with services to help ease the stress of locating cheap fuel. South East Queenslanders can use the RACQ Fair Fuel app, NSW residents can use Fuel Check and for all other cities, Petrol Spy online has got your back or can use the 7-Eleven app or the Ambol app.
Once you’ve installed your 7-Eleven app, a handy feature is the Fuel Lock option. This feature allows you to hold your selected fuel price for up to 7 days, giving you a bit of extra well-needed time to fuel up.
