$1 Discount Per Litre of Petrol between 12pm and 2pm Metro Petroleum [Barrier Street, Canberra]

660

Cheap Petrol in Canberra.

The ACT government will lower speed limits and close roads on Wednesday afternoon when a petrol station plans to sells fuel for as little as 9¢ a litre.

Metro Petroleum in Barrier Street will host the Canberra launch of app Go2 Rewards on Wednesday and will discount $1 per litre between 12pm and 2pm. The station has been selling petrol for close to 109¢ per litre this week.

The promotion is to launch app Go2 Rewards in Canberra, which rewards users with fuel discounts for shopping at partner businesses.

The service station already has some of the lowest fuel prices in Canberra, with fairly consistent lines of cars waiting to fill up.


12pm: Petrol reported as being $1.09/L before discount = $0.09/L after discount. Maximum of 50L per customer.

        Um, summernats? Fyshwick? And lots of other, less bogany, things as well but I thought the question seemed to be asked in a bogany context.

    even if you have to wait 2 hours, its worth going if you can fill a whole tank. Get some books on tape and watch the carnage unfold

    How much is your time worth? It's an interesting question.

    Personally if I could save $200 I'd be happy to queue for 2 hours. But I'm sure that there are many who would disagree.

      you have a 200 litre petrol tank? most cars have about a 50ltr tank… so assuming you fill that, then $50 saving.
      obviously different if you're a truck driver!

        Or if you have a 4wd and jerry cans!

        But to be fair, this is probably a great deal for many out there.

        Most 4WD nowadays have a 150-200l tank.

          Oh yeah heaps of cars have 200l tanks

        Two hours? The wait will be extremely long! If it starts at 12, you must be there hours in advance!

        •  

          Probably not worth it for most. For someone making say $25 an hour they would make pretty much make back the $50 they could save.

          People seem to forget about time value of money when it comes to these things (other examples include long lines for free burgers that are only worth $10 tops). Although might as well if you have nothing to do on the day :)

          @danzha: it only really applies if you're missing work/not earning money to get the petrol. If it's on an RDO then you're earning money while you wait.

    I am pretty confident there is a limit how much can be purchased per customer. Would laugh if it's 10 liters or something like that.

    I like a bargain, but there's no way I'd queue for petrol with all the bogans even if I lived in Canberra.

    I don't think it matters.
    The promotion has already worked
    The cheap fuel is arbitrary at this point.

    Well Done them.

    I filled at that station a couple of times before. The reason why there's usually queues - wait for it - is because of the eftpos terminal. It is perhaps the slowest thing on this planet. It takes it like 2 minutes to process a payment. I haven't paid in cash but I suspect it will be much quicker.

    If 4 cars finish filling up at the same time, the last customer will be in for 6 minutes wait. Meanwhile couple cars rock up and can't enter even though the front 2 already left. It only takes couple more cars to create the illusion that this place is busy.

    Not sure if this is intentional or a short sighted arrangement.
