Always check on PetrolPrices.com before you to fill up. It compares 11,000 petrol stations to find the cheapest one in your area. Just type in your postcode or town and it does the rest.

Or, if you’re into apps, download Waze, a smart community-based traffic app which allows you to join forces with other drivers nearby. They share traffic info so you don’t waste time and money in jams—and also report petrol-pump prices so you can avoid paying through the nose.
