Are you paying the most for your fuel


You have 3 choices. Choose wisely!

Petrol pumps

You are going to fuel your car, you have 3 choices.

  1. £1.50 per litre. This is your regular trusted supplier that you use all the time.
  2. £1.20 per litre. This is another well known trusted supplier just offering a cheaper price.
  3. £1.10 per litre. This is a new supplier that you have never heard of.

Before you make your selection, weigh up the pros and cons

  1. This is the easiest choice. You don’t have to do anything at all to keep paying the most. But, because this is your regular supplier, you just stick with it and, go with the flow.
  2. This is a bit more complex to get a cheaper price from another well known and, trusted supplier. You will have to spend around 20 minutes going through your type of fuel, the amount you use and, making the application.
  3. This is the cheapest, but you have never heard of them. You don’t know their track record as a supplier. Also, you may even have to pay 1 month in advance before you can fuel up.

This has been an analogy for switching energy supplier

This analogy has been put together to assist you when making your choice to switch energy supplier. If you have been put off in the past by any horror stories about switching supplier, we don’t blame you for staying where you are. However, you can avoid many of the pitfalls when you have the information that helps you to make good choices.

When you switch to a cheaper online tariff, it’s equivalent to getting around two months of free gas and electricity over a year.

Good luck. If you have any questions, please leave your comment below.

    I would think about changing ,but to get the best tariffs they want you to do a direct debit .and then they charge you over and above what you have used and you have to argue with them to get your miney back .I prefer to pay as i go .

      Hello
      Dave
      Many thanks for your comment.
      I understand your concerns
      about paying by monthly Direct Debit. However, most of the issues with
      Direct Debit increases are coming from some of the newer suppliers.

      If you switch to one of the longer established suppliers, you can
      greatly reduce this risk. You can find a list of these at:

      In addition, Npower offer a
      quarterly Direct Debit which means you just pay for the energy actually
      used.
      First:Utility, offer standard quarterly billing.
      I hope
      you found this information helpful.
