How to find the cheapest fuel in Germany

By | May 24, 2011

As prices for gas and Diesel are increasing on an almost weekly basis, sparing a few cents on each liter can lead to significant savings in the long run. We are going to show you how to compare prices for gas and Diesel in Germany, in order to find the cheapest fuel nearby your location.

Germany has one of the most expensive fuel in Europe. By reducing the price you pay for a full tank with 5 cents per liter, you can save about €2 per tank. It’s not much, but it’s a beer more. Not for you, of course, since you are the driver 🙂

If you ever travelled in Germany, you had probably seen that fuel prices vary quite a lot from a gas station to another. Germans seem to be very clever when establishing fuel prices. Gas stations in good locations tend to have higher prices. Fuel prices usually increase before weekends and public holidays, when the owners of the stations know that cars will queue anyway and will fill their pockets.

The good thing is that you don’t have to wander from station to station to compare the prices. You would not save money anyway if you did this, since driving from one place to another burns quite some fuel. You can easily use a popular German comparison website that will instantly show you what is the fuel price in a few stations near you. The station address is also displayed, so you can enter it on your GPS if you don’t know the neighbourhood well.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you www.clever-tanken.de. All you have to do is to fill in either the city or the area code in the “HIER SPAREN SIE” box. Choose your fuel type, hit “Suche” and you’re done, enjoy the results which are beautifully sorted by price.
