About Sainsbury’s Fuel

Sainsbury’s started selling petrol and diesel in 1974 in their Croydon SavaCentre hypermarket. While initially marketed and sold under the Jet brand, from 1980 onwards, Sainsbury’s sourced and sold the fuel themselves. In 2004, Sainsbury’s and BP agreed that BP would become the fuel source for Sainsbury’s. BP operated as many forecourts in Sainsbury’s supermarkets as possible as part of this deal. This deal ended in 2009, and the forecourt operation and fuel sourcing returned to the control of Sainsbury’s

They have proved to be innovators in fuel retailing; in 1998, they started selling City Petrol, a cleaner, low-emission unleaded petrol with a reward points incentive to customers who purchased it. In 2001, Sainsbury’s partnered with British Gas to provide LPG on supermarket forecourts. In 2009 Sainsbury’s became the first supermarket chain to provide electric vehicle charging points at select locations.

In May 2022, Sainsbury’s pledged to no longer sell Russian diesel at its petrol stations by the end of 2022 to “stand united” with the people of Ukraine.

According to the UK Petrol Retailers Association Market Review 2023, Sainsbury’s has a 10% market share of fuels sold from UK forecourts.
