Hey Mates!

You are going to buy a van in Australia and you are not sure if it is better to buy a van running on petrol or diesel?

Buying Campervans Sydney has some useful information telling you if it is better to buy a petrol van or to buy a diesel van.

In Australia you can buy four different types of petrol: there is regular unleaded petrol, unleaded petrol with 10% ethanol, premium unleaded petrol and diesel. The petrol prices may vary in different parts of Australia.  In general, it’s cheaper to get fuel in cities and urban areas and more expensive on the countryside and in the Outback as it is not as easy to get the petrol to this rural areas.

Thus, petrol stations on the countryside will charge up to $2 Australian Dollars and more per litre unleaded. The petrol stations in urban and coastal areas charge at the moment about $1.45 Australian Dollars per litre unleaded petrol. Diesel is more expensive than petrol in Australia, at the moment the price is around $1.55 Australian Dollars per litre.

Well, we from Buying Campervans Sydney recommend to buy a van with an engine for unleaded petrol.  We also recomment to fill your tank with fuel in the cities before you start your trip into the countryside or Outback.  This will save you money.

And one more tip from Buying Campervans Sydney: You can even save more money when you buy your groceries at Coles or Woolworths as you will get a discount voucher in the bottom of the receipt.  The partner petrol stations of each supermarket chain are indicated.  For example, it is Shell for Coles.  That way you can save another 4 cents/Liter!  If you drive a lot of kilometers then you will notice the difference quite quickly.

If you have any other questions or if you want to buy a van in Australia, don’t hesitate to FREECALL us 0412766616 or to send us an email. We are always happy to answer your questions at Buying Campervans Sydney 😉
