In recent months, there are those who have not taken the car even once. But with the lack of confidence – let’s hope we don’t have to go back to it -, the summer and the holidays, there are many and many who have been encouraged to go out, have gone from the interior to the coast or vice versa. And as usually happens, that involves filling the tank.
Although in that task it is possible to pull imagination and science. Science like the one behind several mobile apps that serve a great thing for the long-suffering driver: finding cheap gas stations with the lowest prices. Its science is that they are applications that compare fuel prices in different gas stations on a map in seconds, and that can save you up to 10 cents per liter, 10 euros per deposit, which makes a difference when filling the deposit without a doubt.
OCU Gas Station Calculator
The OCU carried out in August 2019 a study of fuel prices in Spain in which it identifies significant savings of up to 300 euros for gasoline vehicles and 250 euros for diesel vehicles. When analyzing the data collected in each province, comparing the most expensive with the cheapest, the result of the average saving that the consumer can obtain is 17% in gasoline and 18% in diesel. In some provinces the savings may be higher.
In Gerona, for example, for gasoline-powered cars, savings can be up to 26%. The same percentage found in Granada for diesel engines. In the case of the Canary Islands, the average saving reaches 34% due to factors such as insularity, distribution costs and the special taxation applied on the islands. The provinces in which less savings can be achieved are Teruel and Lugo in the case of gasoline with savings of 10%, and the same Galician province in the case of diesel with savings of 11%.
In order to facilitate consumer savings, the OCU has an online tool in the form of a gas station calculator to find the cheapest one closest to your home. It shows information not only on diesel and gasoline, but also on liquefied gases (LPG) and biodiesel. Just enter your home address, the type of fuel you are looking for, the tank capacity of your car or motorcycle, and the space in kilometers of the search area. With these 4 data, the calculator will search for the cheapest gas stations near you.
