Like any business we have to take into account the cost of our fuel when setting our prices. We track the international price of refined oil products on a daily basis. These prices are quoted by brokers in US $ per tonne. An industry standard tonnes-to-litres conversion factor is used to convert to litres and the current €/US $ rate of exchange is applied to arrive at cost per litre. If the price is CIF it includes carriage insurance and freight and is effectively a price landed at a post in Ireland.
In addition a cost for Port duties and storing it in the importing terminal together with transport to the service station and a retail margin make up the balance of the fuel cost excluding taxes and duties.
Purchasing from Applegreen gives you constant peace of mind that all your fuel products meet the British Standards Number: I.S. EN 590:2004 and IS Number: I.S. EN 228:2008 industry standards and are fully traceable back to source. In addition because of Applegreen’s ‘low fuel prices, always’ policy you can be assured of constant value for money.
The LowFuelcard is a convenient and safe way for you and your business to pay for your fuel.
