Exxon Mobil has introduced Tesco Clubcard points on fuel at the Esso sites it runs jointly with the supermarket group, and is looking to roll out the loyalty scheme to its wider service station network, including dealer owned sites.

There are 198 Esso-Tesco Alliance service stations in the UK, featuring a Tesco-branded shop and Esso-branded forecourt and fuel.

Simon Herbert, director, Esso Petroleum Company, said: "Over the coming months we intend to explore opportunities to extend this offer to our wider Esso service station network, and will contact our dealers accordingly at the appropriate time."
