Sainsbury’s is launching an offer which it says will provide customers with unleaded petrol at less than £1 per litre.

From Thursday 26th February until Wednesday 4th March it is offering customers spending £30 or more in store or online 10p off per litre of fuel at its forecourts.

Sainsbury’s says the deal could save a customer driving a family saloon car on unleaded fuel as much as £12.44 compared to prices from the same week last year.

The saving is available to customers shopping in supermarkets and convenience stores, and online customers will receive a coupon with their grocery delivery.

Sainsbury’s retail and operations director Roger Burnley said: “We’re delighted to be offering customers this super saving on fuel. For the cost of their essentials, they can take advantage of some of the biggest fuel savings in the market. Customers can fill up at nearly 300 petrol stations at our stores straight after their shop.”
