Heads Up! Cheap Oil and Stuff in Tesco

Recommended Posts

As per title, Fully synth £6/2 litre instead of £12, 5l screen wash £2.49, large WD40 £2.49 and others I can't remember. Looks like they're having a clear out of all sorts of discontinued stuff. Couldn't move for staff and their trollies. I thought they employed night staff to save getting in the way of paying punters! 😡 /rant

£12 for 2 litres was overpriced. I can get Valvoline Synpower at £6 a litre at my local motor factors.

Well, £6 for 2 litres i.e. £3 per litre in Tesco is still cheap then isn't it whether or not £12 was overpriced?

It certainly is. But I'm an oil snob.:rolleyes:

BTW. Shell Helix Synthetic at my local Shell service station, over £20 per litre! Now that is a rip off.

Everything from a Shell garage is a rip off, in my area (and surrounding areas) they are always the most expensive for petrol/diesel, even worse than BP.

£20 for 1 litre is ridiculous even by petrol station standards.

£20+ was for the Ford spec stuff. The other Shell Helix was an absolute bargain at £18+ per litre. :biggrin:

Yeah, they depend on the panic buyer don't they? From the "Oh I'd better check my oil while I'm putting a tenner in, I haven't done it for a while.." to the "What's that flickering red light, where's me glasses Doris - Oh blimey that's the oil light - I'd better go to that garage around the corner!"

Chances are, if the oil light's flickering, he'll have to buy two at that price. Kerching!!
