Thinking of leaving your tank empty for another day? Well, we’ve crunched the numbers – and there are HUGE savings to be made by taking advantage of the fuel price on Tuesday 5 July, rather than waiting until Wednesday onwards.

July fuel price confirmed: Read it and weep…

That’s because the July fuel price will rise at MIDNIGHT, by a considerable amount. Some motorists will, from tomorrow, have to fork out more than R26-per-litre, following a monster R2.57p/l rise on the current petrol costs. Our latest figures make for grim reading.

Huge difference in costs for filling-up TODAY vs filling-up TOMORROW

So, you can cut some serious costs *if* you get to a pump before the clock strikes 00:00. By taking the average size of a tank for motor vehicles (around 45 litres), minibus taxis (usually 75 litres), and motorcycles (typically 20 litres), we have calculated the exact differences.
