Mo­tor­way ser­vice sta­tions gen­er­ate up to five times more ‘profit’ than su­per­mar­kets when they sell petrol and diesel, ac­cord­ing to the cam­paign group Fair­fu­eluk.

At Moto, Wel­come and Road­chef ser­vice sta­tions, un­leaded petrol is sold at an av­er­age profit of 20.6p per litre and 21.2p per litre for diesel, while on su­per­mar­ket fore­courts, the av­er­age profit was just over 3p per litre on petrol and 4.2p per litre on diesel.

The fig­ures are based on the av­er­age pump price mi­nus the whole­sale price, which is the amount re­tail­ers pay.
