'Low-cost' fuel not as cheap as many expect

Petrol stations in Portugal are going to start selling simple fuel, petrol and diesel without any additives and therefore cheaper, as of Thursday, but it is not known how much drivers are going to be able to save.

Petrol station association, Apetro, said the price cut would not be as much as many people were expecting as they cannot sell as cheaply as hypermarket pumps as the business models were different.

Less than a week before the brands have to comply with a law stating that all except the very smallest stations have to sell simple fuel, some ‘premium’ pumps are already dry, waiting to be swapped over to low-cost petrol and diesel.


What octane is this new petrol? I have to use 98
