Give Shell Hell

Shell has changed their policy on optimax pricing. It was originally meant to only be either a 6.5 or 7 cents a litre difference. But in times of recent fuel prices dropping, they have kept the difference at 12.5 cents, and just changed it today to 10 cents. This in my opinion is bloody criminal. I spoke to the person at the servo, they too had complained, and said that the regional manager said, bad luck, tis company policy. Well that aint good enough. I got myself a feedback form, told them what I think, and shall send it in tomorrow. I think that others here who use opitmax should do the same.

In the meantime I shall switch back to Snergy 8000, dont get as much mileage, but hell at the moment is about 5 cents cheaper!!!!

I gave up using Optimax a while ago - for that reason. Stay away from the pumps! It's the best way of telling them what you think.

Both are 98 octane, but I get better fuel economy from Optimax, I have no ideal why. Have a mate with a worked XF, he gets better economy from Optimax too over Synergy 8000.

Fuel was 79.5 cents litre down here Sunday, yet I had to pay 92.5 cents for Optimax. Didn't realise until almost filled up. So I enquired.........

Well if anyone wants to get synergy8000, the mobil servo near my house has it for 85.?.
I live in Noble Park so if anyone wants it, go get it.

I really like what TripleM are doing, with their traffic weather and radar report, how they also let you know where cheap fuel is.

mad

I know what you're talking about Jas.
I'm not that far from you, and on the weekend I decide to go for a spin in MY car which I don't get to drive too much. As usual,despite my pleadings to the missus to fill up during the early/middle of the week, it's near empty. Straight to Shell to fill up, what's the price...$102.9 bugger it. Normal unleaded at the time, 90.3c or something like that. The gap's growing. Makes the other premium's a little more attractive, especially Mobil.
