Hey all,

Just wondering if anybody has any knowledge of the quality of the COLES/WOOLLIES fuel. It's already cheaper than anywhere else around, and you can then save an additional 4c/litre by bringing in your docket. I filled up, 160 litres the other day, and it saved me a good $15! However, after reading on recent posts about $3000 diesel pump rebuilds, I was wondering if anybody knows anything about the quality. Can they just afford to be so much cheaper coz of who they are, or is it something more sinister and evil........

Hi , just did the quick calculation of 160L @.04c and it comes in at a $6.40 saving. This is a great saving on a tank of fuel. I save a good 4.75 a tank on my 155l of lpg. No problems with the lpg quality. Can't comment on diesel.

I use their petrol. I also use Shell. Can't pick any difference in performance or economy. Can't comment on Diesel but I hardly think a company of that size would be into dealing in dodgy fuel.

They should be able to provide technical data such as sulphur content or whatever it is that makes good quality diesel.

Good Luck.

Jim.

Mate, in Qld only fill at Woolies on diesel. Had absolutely no problems in the 3lt Nissan. As someone else said, big companies like that are not going to sell dodgy fuel. And as for short litres??? give me a break. They would fined millions if they did that and it would cost them millions in lost sales.

John, as suggested, I have just had a look at 14746 and the others within that thread. Certainly makes interesting reading and I don't suggest for a moment that the content is not true. I certainlt know that here in Brisbane, the Caltex refinery supplies a lot of the fuel. Statements in thread quite correct.

However, I can only speak from my own experience and not from heresay of others. Not to say that I dismiss their thoughts out of hand. Always good to have this knowledge so that you can keep an eye on any suspect dealings.

I can only say that I have never had bad diesel from Woolies. According to my consumption figures, which are very consistent, I have not suffered from incorrect weights and measures. Maybe I'm just lucky. When a home I only ever buy from the one outlet. Obviously when we're away we buy where we can.

Cheers
