    Default Cheap diesel on the west Rand

    OK so I am stingy, already got all the well priced fuel station sorted on my routes from Honeydew to Sandton. However can't seem to find some further west in Roodepoort and Krugersdorp? Can someone help me?

    So the well-priced ones I use are as follows, prices in September 2018:
    Caltex in Rabie Street between Republic and N1 - R15.01
    Total on JG Strijdom in Weltevreden Park, only on Sat and Sun R15.15
    Caltex in Hans Schoeman in Malanshof R14.89
    Sasol in Northworld R15.30

    Any info on further west?

    Thanks
    Mike

    I filled up at the shell in luipaardsvlei and my bakkie smoked when accelerating.

    I now only fill up here

    Its a drive out the way, (on my way to work)
    I regularly see people with fortuners, hilux bakkies, big rigs, anything really filling up there.

    I've been using the Caltex on Rabie, but I've noticed a bit of smoking on hard acceleration.

    Is there a thread on best fuels for diesel?

    Just a heads up. Some years back MB were experiencing engine failures in mainly one specific area / a certain customer and asked me to assist. What I found was the diesel that was being supplied was mostly illuminating paraffin. This was being supplied by a bulk supplier. From then on the problem persisted and spread in the market place with sellers diluting diesel with around 10% IP. At 10% and with high tech diesel engines, you will experience performance loss short term and engine problems long term. The government got involved as there is no tax on IP. The government tried but had problems controlling the IP addition. I believe that this problem persists especially with the recent price increases. It is extremely difficult to detect. I helped someone who ran into some serious problems in Lesotho and then decided to make a test kit.

    I might still have his details if anyone is interested.
