Morrisons shoppers can get 5p a litre off fuel until next Sunday

MORRISONS has just launched a deal giving motorists 5p a litre off fuel.

All you need to do to enjoy the offer is spend at least £40 before April 7 in a Morrisons store, where you'll be given a voucher.

To then redeem the coupon, simply fill up your car at a Morrisons petrol station between March 27 and April 17 and hand it over to get your discount.

Morrisons says it can only be used on one purchase of fuel, up to a maximum of 100 litres.

The £40 spending excludes purchases at Morrisons' cafés and of fuel, tobacco, lottery products, gift cards, stamps, infant milk formula, mobile top-ups, and online games.

For the full terms and conditions, see Morrisons' website.

As always, it is worth comparing petrol prices to nearby stations in advance to make sure you're not paying more than you have to – though the 5p a litre off fuel may outweigh any difference.

Morrisons has previously offered motorists 10p a litre off fuel, while Tesco last month ran an offer giving shoppers 5p off every litre if you first spent at least £50 in a Tesco store or online.

Ways to cut down on your fuel costs

HERE are some tips on how you can slash the cost of fuel

  1. Make your car more fuel-efficient. You can do this by keeping your tyres inflated, taking the roof rack off, emptying your car of clutter and turning off your air con when driving at lower speeds.
  2. Find the cheapest fuel prices. PetrolPrices.com and Confused.com allows you to search prices of UK petrol stations. All you need to do is enter in your postcode and tell it how far you want to travel (up to 20 miles).
  3. Drive more efficiently. Some ways to do this, include:
  • Accelerate gradually without over-revving
  • Always drive on the highest possible gear
  • If you can, allow your car to slow down naturally as your brake is a money burner
  • Re-starting your car is expensive, if you can keep moving

Morrisons' new offer may come in handy as petrol prices are set to soar by £160 a year.

A planned merger between Asda and Sainsbury's could also be stopped over fears it will push up prices of fuel for customers

Meanwhile, three months of fuel price drops came to an end for motorists in February as retailers "instantly" passed on wholesale price rises.
