How to find the cheapest fuel prices near you

fuel prices

Fuel prices fluctuate every day in Sydney and even in the same suburb at different service stations. The greenslips.com.au fuel price calculator shows you just how much you could save on fuel, every minute of the day.

How to use the fuel price calculator

The fuel price calculator is easy to use and checks prices from every service station, every 20 minutes. There are 3 steps:

  1. Select fuel type.
  2. Enter suburb or postcode.
  3. Choose favourite service stations.

Fuel type

All the most common fuel types are here – U91, E10, DL – and electric vehicle charging too. Altogether there are 11 fuel types and you can choose up to 4 at once.

Suburb or postcode

You can quickly choose your current location or enter any suburb in NSW. It may be your home address, suburbs on your journey to work, or villages on a long trip.

Favourite service station

The fuel price calculator covers every service station in every suburb in NSW. To make a service station your favourite, click the white star and it will turn green. If you plan a long trip in NSW, you can choose favourites in towns along the way to help you decide where to stop. The calculator can show you a list or a map of these stations.

To get up to date fuel prices, click on the Favourites icon to get prices from all your favourite service stations.


If you choose, we can email you at any time with updated fuel prices from your favourite service stations. Click the Notifications and Connect icons and tell us your email address and how often you would like the email sent. You can delete or change these preferences at any time by clicking the Settings icon.

Why does fuel cost so much?

The price of fuel is based on a complex variety of factors. It’s tempting to blame high prices on one single factor, such as public holidays, country versus city, or motorway versus suburban prices. In fact, the opposite is just as likely to be true and these are only very small contributors.

ACAPMA explains the average breakdown of fuel prices:

  • 85% is the cost of the product only.
    • Half is the wholesale price (based on oil prices, exchange rate, production, transport).
    • Half is government taxes.
  • 15% is transport to the service station, retail cost, wages, profit (roughly 2-2.2 cents per litre).

Whatever are the current reasons for high or low prices, it always makes sense to compare fuel prices. We compare every servo, every fuel type, guaranteed.
