Does this always work for you and at multiple locations? Also have you tried this recently? If it does work this would actually be a good buy especially if you use it with the previous post about shoppers drug mart gift card promos or with a cash back cc.
Yes it did work in multiple locations. Last time I had a fuel savings card was around 4 months ago.

So would this work:

Prepay $100 on CC - less (say) $6 fuel savings, but only fill $10 = $4 on credit card

Go back in, say the pump cut off, prepay another $100, uses up another $6 in savings

Thanks! If anyone who bought this already and tries prepaying $100 combined with the discount card let us know how it went.

So prepay $200 and refund the difference after filling $25 would ne5 me the best bang for the buck on 5his deal?

Unless things has changed....

When I had the fuel savings card last time, I would go in and prepay to accelerate usage of savings card.

Say gas is $1.50 a liter. I would prepay $100. The system would automatically deduct the 10 cents/liter savings = $6.60. I ended only filling $45 (30 liters). My net cost is $38.40.
What am I doing wrong?

I prepaid $100, swiped my Esso Extra/2.5c privileges card, filled up 40L but when I looked at my receipt I only had 2.5 cents x 40 deducted in savings.

Did you check the balance on the Savings card?

My case.
Prepaid receipt showed the equivalent 2.5 cents for the $100 of regular fillup. I am not enrolled in Esso Extra.
The final receipt from the pump wasn't clear.
I waited for a few days until the charge was posted on my credit card account.

This must be one of the worst ‘deals’ ever. More of a scam really. Don’t fall for it. All you’re really getting is $0.0166(6) off a litre, yes a penny and a half off for paying $135 up front and that’s if you use all 1500 litres and a GC. This shouldn’t even be on this forum let alone be considered a hot deal.
Not a deal,Scam!
Lots of esso stations have disable swipe privileges card at pump. You have to walk in to pay. Even I can save 2.5 cents a litre, most time I ignored it.

....or you can save 85% on fuel costs by switching to an electric car.......(the Ontario $14k incentive is a large factor but even without it you'd save money)....
Talk to me about this.

12kms commute each way. I would only be commuting to work. What's the cheapest car I can get after (friendly neighbourhood taxpaying subsidy) rebate & what would the finance or lease be?

I simply despise small cars, but 85% of fuel costs is not something to scoff at.

Well, if you don't like small cars, then the Nissan Leaf is probably your best bet because it's a mid-size hatch. Most other EV's other than the Tesla's are compact or subcompact. You're not going to save a ton of cash if you only drive 24km per day. Also, being from NL, you don't qualify for any rebates right now, so the pricing for an '18 Leaf would just be MSRP of $36,000 for the S, $39,600 for the SV (the best value) or $42,000 for the SL.

Like half the posts in this poor deal thread are about you bragging about your EV. They aren't right for everyone, especially condo dwellers and those of us who use our cars for longer distance commutes or to see customers.

Are you just going to jump in any petrol thread and derail it with your buy an EV right now kuz blah blah blah?

I like EV cars but you posted like 8 times basically the same rhetoric that buying gas doesn't make sense anymore.
I dont know if bragging is the correct word but I think hes just showing the cost analysis of having an electric vehicle. Being a user of this website I think many of us have a frugal side in us and if driving an electric car isnt your thing, maybe reducing your carbon might sway you. If not, thats fine. But some of us have enjoyed his informational posts and I know I did!!!

I will def consider an electric vehicle.

Yeah, I know........my Intrepid R/T just sits in the garage for the past 3-1/2 years since I got my Leaf. Can't really afford to drive it. Couldn't afford to drive my Civic either, so that's why I sold it. I have much higher priorities for my money than paying for gasoline.

I'm just trying to help the average public realize how much money can be saved on vehicles. Probably nobody more accepting of this than the people on RFD.
You couldn't afford to drive a civic yet you can buy an EV? Aren't they generally more expensive regardless of the tax rebate?

What are the costs of repairs going to be like when it starts to have electrical problems?


That aside, I think I will only consider an electric vehicle once access to charging stations and more R&D is done. I'm guessing another 6-10 years and many more EVs will be on the road as I hardly see any at all now.

With the incentive, a Leaf is a MUCH cheaper car than a Civic, both in purchase price and running costs (and it has a lot more space than a Civic). Without the incentive, the Leaf costs more but over 5 years will STILL cost less. I've got a few months to go until my lease is up @ 96,000km and my '18 Leaf gets here. It's surprisingly easy to rack up 96,000km 160km at a time and with the new one, 300km at a time. Going to be an interesting (but doable) trip going to Wisconsin in the spring with the new Leaf.

Even though there are thousands of public charging stations in Ontario, you won't use them very much. 95%+ of your charging is done at home every night, but the average person doesn't comprehend this too well. You plug the car in every night, just like a cell phone and wake up every morning with a full tank.

My running costs are: $1.60/100km for electricity (Ontario rates) and $10 in maintenance costs so far (cabin air filter - $3, rear wiper blade rubber - $2 & a couple jugs of RainX washer fluid - $2 each), closing in on 90,000km driven. I DID buy a used set of tires as well, not sure if that counts for maintenance costs? The original 2015 battery will EASILY outlast the vehicle considering it's currently at 95% of original capacity and degradation has been shown to be a linear relationship between age & charging cycles.

I have a friend who bought a Chevy Bolt and doesn't have a plug at home (lives in an apartment). He RELIES 100% on public charging. He's spent $37.11 to drive 42,000km last time I talked to him (under $1 per 1,000km). He's a bit crazy though. He does Uber driving on the side to make some extra cash.
