Can't even buy a cup of coffee with the savings.
Agreed the only saving I gain is 8c per litre ,full tank that's only 16c a tank ,certainly not going to send me broke

I prefer the premium more because the standard of filtering , storing and regulation is a lot higher and better ,over here in Au the regular mix is notorious for being of much lower quality dirtier fuel ,at one point a mates car was rendered useless for a few months due to water in the tank/fuel because of contamination in the regular fuel from a discount fuel provider , it killed the motor and no compensation was offered as the fuel is at Byers risk ( which is a load if you ask me )
