Tesco brings back popular 5p off a litre of petrol offer

TESCO has brought back an offer that gives motorists 5p off every litre of petrol or diesel.

The current deal is available to customers who spend £50 in a Tesco store or online until this Sunday, February 24.

All you need to do to enjoy the offer is spend at least £50 in a Tesco store, where you'll be given a voucher valid for two weeks.

Or if you're an online customer and spend £50 or more, you'll receive the fuel coupon when your groceries are delivered or when you pick them up in a store. This must be used by March 3.

To redeem the coupon, simply fill up your car at a Tesco petrol station and hand it over to get your discount.

Tesco says it can only be used on one purchase of fuel, up to a maximum of 100 litres.

The £50 spending excludes purchases at any café & tobacco kiosks and of fuel, lottery products, gift cards, stamps, prescriptions, infant milk formula, Tesco Bank, and on travel money.

For the full terms and conditions, see Tesco's website.

As always, it is worth comparing petrol prices to nearby stations in advance to make sure you're not paying more than you have to – though the 5p off a litre may outweigh any difference.

Ways to cut down on your fuel costs

HERE are some tips on how you can slash the cost of fuel

  1. Make your car more fuel-efficient. You can do this by keeping your tyres inflated, taking the roof rack off, emptying your car of clutter and turning off your air con when driving at lower speeds.
  2. Find the cheapest fuel prices. PetrolPrices.com and Confused.com allows you to search prices of UK petrol stations. All you need to do is enter in your postcode and tell it how far you want to travel (up to 20 miles).
  3. Drive more efficiently. Some ways to do this, include:
  • Accelerate gradually without over-revving
  • Always drive on the highest possible gear
  • If you can, allow your car to slow down naturally as your brake is a money burner
  • Re-starting your car is expensive, if you can keep moving
