Lucky motorists treated to 13.9p petrol

Petrol at 13.9p a litre!
Drivers in Coventry had a spot of good luck yesterday - stumbling on a petrol station selling fuel at 13.9p/litre - some £1.20/litre less than its usual price.

According to the Coventry Telegraph, a Jet garage was the scene of the oversight, with one of the four pumps at the filling station misplacing a decimal point and giving customers a nice surprise at the checkout.
Naturally, word of the bargain fuel soon spread - and before too long, motorists were reportedly queuing up to the petrol station in droves.

To put price drop in perspective, a Ford Mondeo - normally around £100 to fill - could be brimmed for just £9.73. Own a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and you could have made an even bigger saving - £15.29 for a fill-up against the usual £152.

This isn't the first time such a mistake has occurred, though - in April last year, an Asda filling station in Bradford made exactly the same blunder, pricing one of their pumps at 12.9p/litre.
