    getting cheaper by the day! I'll wait a few more and lock in when its in the 1.20s

  •  

    thats a good deal.

    Too bad that I have already locked the 135 and 133 haha

      The notifs are stuffed for me.
      I've cleared cache and data, uninstalled, restarted phone. Reinstalled and my thresholds are still there, but example I've set 1.30 U98 but just notified me 1.31 help

        Have you only got 98 set?

        I think mine notifies me of all prices when one is below the threshold. E.g i set it for 91,95,98 when 91 gets below $1.25, it seems to send an alert for all. If you haven't set the others, try setting them to max.

      • +3 votes

        Let me create a quick function for user to "Reset all their settings"
        That way it will unsubscribe all the alerts and user can re-setting them again

        Will be in the next version :)

            @ccrap: Ok whoops lol. Saw the negs and then bothered to look up the real meaning behind the meme. KB, for the record I was genuinely thanking you (you can see my plus on your comment before my post haha).

    Just filled up at 1.35 earlier this arvo. Gonna wait till the 20s now.

  •  

    Lock it in, Eddie. Even if it goes down another couple of cents it'll save me less than $1. I may be sad if it goes down another 10c though. Or I'll just fill up and lock that in too.

  •  

    Finally working for me but when I lock up price asking for card details and than verify personal detail.! Any way around it.!

  •  

    Will the cashier deny the lock in price if I am in QLD? Will they suspect and prevent me from purchasing?

    • +12 votes

      Yes, it's a jailable offence

    •  

      No. No.

      Nope, even if they suspect you they will still process it. The one time I got called out the 711 staff just said he had to report any suspicious transactions and that was that. Acc is still up and running.

      •  

        Some stores are a bit funny about it like that. One store I went to said he's system froze and was unable to process it. When i insisted I was only going to pay the lock in price he did some manual override b.s apparently.

  •  

    Literally as I was walking into the servo to pay with my 135.7 lock, I got the notification.

    Thanks universe.

  •  

    So I have had $40 loaded onto my up to lock in fuel as you do

    I only pay with my debit card for the locked in fuel

    But some how my balance is $1.10?

    There doesn't seem to be a transaction history on the app

    Thanks Op

    thanks OP

    anyone managed to use n_x to lock?

    Time to teleport!

  •  

    First time using the app, got Nox to work as well. Do I have to top up/pre-pay to lock in? On the 7/11 website it states "No, there's no pre-paying when you create your Fuel Price Lock voucher on the App".
    Does everyone just keep $X in their account for the purpose of locking in and paying cash, if it requires you to prepay?

  •  

    What app do you guys use for teleport?

  •  

    Hi any help for Android Reno z please Trying to teleport

  •  

    Any way to have more than one fuel price lock in the app?

  •  

    Is It possible to take a screenshot of the voucher and send it off to my family member to use?

  •  

    Can you put this in an ordinary unleaded car and get better economy or is it no good ?

      Waste of money

        My car has an annoyingly small (40L) tank and since having swapped from using apco 95 to 7-11 98 I'm getting an extra 150km out of a tank.

        I don't call that a waste of money but if you would rather fill up more often for the same monetary cost then you do you.

          It sounds like your car has a turbo and could have used the more premium fuel type rather than anything else.

          • +1 vote

            @ATangk: It's irrelevant what car he has. I have a cerato koup turbo and kia recommends 91. I've tried 95 and 98 and it made absolutely zero difference. Noodlenoggin is spewing garbage. Only reason i even tried 95 & 98 is due to cheap 7/11 prices like this.

            You use whatever is recommended by your car manufacturer in the user manual. The engine has been designed & optimized to use that fuel type.

      You can use an octane level higher than what's specified in your cars manual, but don't go lower.
      My car is supposed to have 95 or higher and I've been getting significantly better economy out of 7-11 98 then I was getting from apco 95.

      Lock yourself in some cheaper fuel and run 98 for at least 2 tanks and compare what economy your getting then decide if it's worth it for you.

      • +2 votes

        There's no way you're getting 150km extra from a 3 octane increase, it's just not possible all other things being equal.

        •  

          Agreed, most likely noodlenoggin has done a long freeway/highway drive after putting 98 fuel in, which generally gives about 30% improvement in fuel economy vs city stop/start driving.

          • -1 vote

            @billy_bob: I've had the car for 6 years and done many lots of freeway driving in it, and never gotten the economy I'm now getting. Absolutely nothing else has changed. Haven't even had the thing serviced because it's rusty and not worth the expense.
            I used to get 350-380 kms out of a tank, topped up yesterday and I'd done 430 on 3/4 of a tank, with no freeway driving.

        • -1 vote

          Honestly not convinced apco premium fuel actually is 95.
          Nothing else has changed. Unless shampooing the seats did something magical?

        •  

          The difference between 95 and 98 isn't supposed to be nothing but an extra 3 octane. It's supposed to have additives which 'clean tanks' and 'improve economy', among other claims.

          The car is for sale if you'd to buy it so you can see for yourself, although I'll bet you'd rather keep your blinders on so you can protect the alternate reality you seem to live in and attack those who dare mention it's real.

            @noodlenoggin: If you understood what the octane meaning refers to, you'd know it doesn't mean energy density.

            RON is research octane number which means the fuel (which is compared to octane) has an ability to resist self detonation to a same property of a 98% iso-octane mixture (forgot the other 2%)

            It refers to the ability to withstand higher compression ratios, before self igniting (which is known as engine knock) than it's supposed to

            Yes, there are additives, as well, there's no denying that.

            But 91 to 98 fuel, assuming the fuel injectors are clean, should not yield any difference for a car that was designed to run at 91 fuel (meaning slightly lower compression ratio) compared to if it was running 98 RON fuel.

            Unless, the engine was able to change its compression ratio on the fly.

            •  

              @cwongtech: I have never claimed octane levels were energy density levels.

              My forensic chemistry associate professor was actually recently part of a study into fuel compositions, he was pretty interesting to talk to.

              I'm also not mechanically illiterate. Just because I am willing to admit there is much I do not know, does not mean I know nothing.
              But this is completely irrelevant to the fact that I am getting significantly better economy by changing a single variable: fuel.

              You really can't assume the fuel injectors are clean if you're running cheap fuel.

              Again, the difference between 95 fuel from apco and 98 fuel from 7-11 is NOT merely 3 octane.

                @noodlenoggin: Well, I can tell you I have no noticeable fuel economy difference from 95/98 Caltex and 95/98 7-11..

                I fill according to price.
                4c+6% e-gift at Woolies is cheaper than normal 7/11 prices if the price cycle is low

                Only noticeable fuel economy difference is for when I do highway driving, or extreme weather where I need to turn on the AC to full blast, which could mean the intake air is warmer, thus less dense and available for combustion, leading to less power output

        I get better fuel economy from the E10 from United than the 95 from country Shell servos, so that's what I was using before I started using the 7 eleven fuel lock. There's zero reason why that should be the case, especially because I was only using it when I was doing long trips 100km/h no stop/start, which is when I get my best fuel economy - a smidge over 500k/tank. I get a smidge over 400k/tank from the 95 from Shell servos, which is worse than what I normally get from suburban driving with the United E10 with short trips. Getting around 550k/tank using 98 doing only suburban and short trips. Tank is 40L

        •  

          I don't use E10 but everything else is almost exactly what happens with my car. I stopped using shell a couple of years ago when they decided they would always be about 6c a litre more than the apco over the road, and the price jumps between 91, 95 & 98 were bigger.
          I've been doing more suburban driving and less highway trips lately but the economy is still 150kms better then the 95 I used to use.

          So unless bert-lifts is gonna tell me that the higher stress suburban driving is more economical he's the one spewing garbage and needs to stop making unsupported claims and petty attacks on those merely stating facts.

      Use whatever is recommended by your manufacturer. Don't listen to the muppets saying you'll get better fuel economy from 95 and 98. It's complete bs.

      • +1 vote

        I actually have never said he would get better fuel economy. I've shared my personal experience with 7-11 98 fuel, and suggested he compare the economy he gets from each fuel while it's available for cheap and make his own decisions based on the results.

        You can believe what you want, I can't do anything more then share facts of my own little experiment.

    A technician is fixing their tank not so I guess the price will be changed soon as U91 tank is fixed. So be quick if you still haven't locked it.

    It expired while I was on my way there.

    The guy at the 7-eleven joked that I had been in Vic. I should have made a helicopter joke.
