If you own a car or a motorbike, then you'll have noticed that petrol doesn't come cheap and worse than that the prices of fuel are rising.

If you want to find the cheapest place to fill up your tank in your vicinity, it's worth doing a quick price comparison of local petrol stations to see who is charging the least, and where they are located.

Living in Perth, I have long been a fan of Fuel Watch, where I'll quickly hop online to find the cheapest petrol in my local area. A quick scan of the prices, regularly saves me around 3c a litre, which adds up to a nice saving for a full tank of fuel, and saves a lot of money over the year. Additionally, I've learnt that locally, filling up on a Tuesday (randomly) seems to be a cheaper petrol day rather than closer to the weekend.

If you're not in Perth, then don't fear, as the internet (as always), has you covered. A great site (and app) is Motormouth, where you just type in your postcode, and in return you get a list of petrol stations in your area and the prices. Motormouth currently reports accurate fuel prices in the following areas: Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide, Canberra, Darwin and Perth.

If your area is not covered here, then jump online and see if you can find a local fuel watch site, and share it on here (in the comments) so other readers can benefit too.

Do you have any more tips on how to get free petrol?
