I went to my local Shell garage to fill up 106.9 L and as normal people were queueing to get to the pumps one became available so I went and commenced filling mine up. Whilst it was filling I glanced at the small price indicator and noticed that it said 112.9 L did a few double takes at this point and noticed a small label on the pump which said VPower. Meant nothing special to me but was beginning to have suspicions so terminated the fill.
On paying I asked the cashier about it and she confirmed the difference in price.
I haven't bothered doing the maths but I believe you would be very hard pressed to justify that sort of price increase so would have to get a much improved consumption to do so.
Will keep an eye out in future.
