    With the news a few weeks ago that the big fuel suppliers are now confirmed to be price fixing and not competing hence were paying more at the pumps (google it). I have started working on a little website project to try and force a bit of competition

    http://www.fillerapp.co.uk

    Its still work in progress however the basic concept is there, anyone think it could work with enough people signed up ?

    Nice idea, but you'll have to try and pump some more faith into people.

    Yeah,

    well at the moment I basically called every taxi rank in the uk in the last week, I told them all to sign up on Wednesday morning.

    I am also calling every Haulier, vehicle rental place including limos, white van man, farmer and everyone else I can find with a phone number. I am scraping every place I can find an email address buying selling or trading in any car related commodity and have a batch of emails ready to go.

    Add to that my boss is a major business egg head type with more followers on twitter than the pied piper and he is going to tweet on Wednesday to and I think it may get traction.

    Fingers crossed, if it gets me 5 pence of a fecking litre would be good enough for me.

    They are the public domain versions however I have written to all the ones published last week to introduce the project and have heard back from 2 this week with some feedback, one positive and one very neutral.

    I think it's ok to do so under fair dealing / fair comment.

    You say any of the petrol stations can scan your discount code?! The ones I use couldn't, they don't have basic scanners.

    Its not spiced ham, spiced ham is my last resort before I would room 101 the project.

    I am an IT bod to trade so this has not cost me anything to do, check the domain registration, its only been going a week.
