A petrol station in Coventry became popular yesterday after it sold petrol from just 13.9p per litre, reports coventrytelegraph.net.
A worker at the Jet station had set the wrong price - which meant customers took advantage of cut-price fuel. The fuel's usual cost is 139.9p per litre.
Queues soon started to form as word got around about the savings, with customers lining up for four hours from midnight, to 4am.
Motorist Abdul Hassain, 36 told dailyrecord.co.uk: "I got a text from my friend saying the station was selling 13p petrol. I couldn't believe it until I got there and saw everyone filling up."
Mr Hassain managed to fill his cars petrol tank for £9. He managed to get a saving of £81, as it usually takes him £90 fully fill his vehicle's tank.
Drivers came from as far away as Birmingham to make sure they got their hands on the savings, according to reports. However businesses who missed out, may want to consider options such as fleet tracking to save on fuel more long-term. The service allows for precise time-management of vehicles that can allow current and forward journey planning and adaptations to travelling conditions.
Staff at the Coventry branch eventually put the price back to what it was supposed to be. The firm declined to comment on the incident.
