The price of petrol and diesel is getting more expensive again. However, if you compare the different prices between petrol stations, you can save a lot. The Spanish Organisation of Consumers and Users OCU indicates which are the most expensive and cheapest chains.

Fuel prices have been rising steadily over the past few months, making saving money when filling up more important than ever. The Organisation of Consumers and Users (OCU) has carried out a comprehensive analysis of more than 10,000 petrol stations throughout Spain, with the aim of finding the cheapest chains and providing motorists with the tools they need to make informed decisions.

The cheapest chains of petrol stations

According to OCU’s research, a few chains stand out as the cheapest, with BonÀrea leading the way. This chain, which operates in Catalonia and parts of Aragon, has the lowest prices for both diesel A and gasoline 95 and 98.

When it comes to diesel, GM Oil (linked to GM cash), Beroil, Campsa Express (Campsa’s low-cost variant) and Petroprix stand out. With the exception of Beroil, these are chains of unmanned filling stations. When it comes to gasoline, GM Oil, Campsa Express, Petroprix and Plenoil stand out with more advantageous prices.

The most expensive chains when refuelling

According to the OCU, it is more expensive to fill up at the most popular petrol stations. Diesel is the most expensive at IDS and the three petrol stations with the largest network, Repsol, Cepsa and BP. In the case of petrol, the most expensive chains are BP, Petronor and Petrocat, but Repsol and Cepsa are hardly lagging behind.

Save up to 10%

By choosing a cheap petrol station, you can save an average of 10% when filling up. This equates to about 20 cents per litre for diesel and about 15 cents per litre for petrol. For example, if you fill up with 50 litres of diesel at an average price of €2 per litre, you will pay €100. However, if you fill up at a cheap petrol station, you pay €80, a saving of €20. On the OCU website you can check at which gas station you can refuel cheaply in your area.
