Supermarket giant Tesco is the UK’s favourite fuel retailer according to a new survey of motorists conducted by independent market analyst Datamonitor.


A survey that asked car owners about their motoring habits puts Tesco top for fuel price, customer service and quality of its forecourt shop offer. Second place was also scooped by a supermarket Morrisons. BP came last in the top five, and scored particularly poorly for the price of its fuel.


Alex Jeater, service station retail analyst at Datamonitor, said: "Supermarkets have been popular with consumers for fuel for a while due to lower prices. However they’re now beating traditional forecourts for service and shopping as well."
