Tesco, like most of the supermarket petrol stations initially started selling branded petrol, either Gulf, Texaco or BP but in the late 80s their own brand fuel went on sale.
It was announced in October 2005 that Tesco was to buy 21 supermarket forecourt stations from Morrisons, making them the UK’s number one supermarket fuel retailer with approximately a third of all supermarket based forecourts.
Tesco supplies its forecourts with Super Unleaded 99 Octane. The fuel is a blend of 5% bio-ethanol and has been available since mid-November 2005, at selected filling stations across the UK. This is supplied to Tesco by Greenergy. Early in 2006, 181 of Tesco’s filling stations in the South and North West were converted to biodiesel.
Tesco, while it has the largest market share of petrol stations, is the complete opposite when it comes to electric charging. Tesco has the fewest number of charging points of any supermarket with 23 devices, containing 45 connectors. Unsurprisingly, Tesco also has the lowest percentage of electric charging points compared the number of stores with just 0.4% of their stores having them.
