Average motor fuel volume sold per petrol station in the United Kingdom (UK) in November 2018, by brand (in kiloliters per annum)***

Petrol station brand site volume in the United Kingdom (UK) 2018 In November 2018, sites belonging to supermarket chain Sainsbury’s sold the highest volume of petrol per station, at 11,809 kiloliters. The figures clearly show that supermarket forecourts sold the highest volumes of fuel per site in the UK, with Tesco, Morrison’s and Asda following Sainbury’s.
Tesco leads the motor fuel market

  Tesco opened its first petrol stations in the UK in 1974 and is now the country’s market leader. In 2018, Tesco had the largest market share of motor fuel sold in petrol stations at 16 percent. Despite selling on average less fuel per site than other supermarkets, BP had the second largest market share of motor fuel sold with 14.6 percent. This is explained by the British multinational oil and gas company owning the greatest number of petrol station sites in the nation.

Supermarket fuel prices cheapest

In 2017, supermarket shares of all fuel sold in the UK were slightly under 46 percent, with diesel shares at 46 percent. Whilst this was a decrease from the previous year, it shows the popularity of supermarket forecourts. Typically, supermarket fuel prices are cheaper than the UK average and can often lead to supermarket “price wars”.
