Drivers are being warned to avoid buying fuel from certain petrol stations, with experts warning “never fill up there”.

According to the RAC, the average price of unleaded fuel stood at 165.86p per litre at the beginning of November.

While the average price of diesel was at 190.31p per litre at the same time.

And while the cost of both fuel types are expected to stay roughly the same for the time being, petrol station prices can still be different depending on where you buy the fuel from.

As a result experts are warning motorists to be selective about where you buy your fuel from.

For instance, it is usually more expensive to buy fuel from motorway service stations because they do not sell the same amount of fuel that supermarkets do.

And a spokesperson for Ocean Finance has urged drivers never to top up at such petrol stations.

The spokesperson said: “Never top up your fuel at a motorway service or near a motorway exit.

“Even though fuel prices have risen across the board, not all petrol stations are charging the same amount.

“As a general rule, petrol stations at motorway services, or near motorway exits, tend to be the most expensive.

“This is because the operators know they have a captive audience.

“If you’re running low on fuel, better to refill while you can than risk your tank running dry before you find a cheaper petrol station to use,” as quoted by the Express.
