2022 FUEL DISCOUNT. The fuel discount of 30 cents will gradually decrease and end at the end of the year. Total, meanwhile, plans to stop its additional discount in the face of the threat of the tax on super profits.
[Mis à jour le 23 septembre 2022 à 10h51] discount fuel of 30 euro cents per liter purchased presents a very specific timetable for all users on French territory. It will drop to 10 cents from November 1, 2022, before completely extinguishing on January 1, 2023. These deadlines have already been confirmed by the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire. An extension to 2023 is however not completely ruled out, it will depend on the evolution of energy prices, especially in relation to the war in Ukraine and supply. As a reminder, TotalEnergies is also offering an additional discount, of 20 euro cents then 10 euro cents, according to the same timetable as the government. By combining the two discounts, you can save 50 euro cents per liter at first, then 20 euro cents. Yet this extra help could end overnight. Indeed, the CEO of Total Patrick Pouyanné has expressed his dissatisfaction with a possible tax on super profits to which his company would be subject. “The contribution in 2023 will depend on the level of taxation that you will all decide,” he said. In other words, the Total discount of 20 euro cents per liter could disappear in the coming weeks.
This support measure is part of the purchasing power law, an anti-inflation package voted this summer by deputies and senators. Total cost of the operation: 20 billion euros. Are all fuels concerned? The fuel discount will not apply to heating oil, as indicated on the website of the Ministry of the Economy. This discount of 30 cents from this Thursday, September 1, 2022 concerns diesel, gasoline (SP95, SP98-E5, SP-95-E10), super ethanol (E85), diesel ethanol (ED95), diesel fishing, non-road diesel (GNR), liquefied petroleum gas fuel (LPG-c), natural gas for vehicles (NGV) in compressed (CNG) or liquefied (LNG) form. Attention, the discount of 30 cents will only apply to metropolitan France. Corsica and overseas territories will not be affected. In question, lower taxes on the price of fuel.
The fuel discount benefits from a “decreasing” calendar until it is completely extinguished at the end of December 2022. Here are the dates to remember:
- Discount of 30 euro cents from September 1 to October 31, 2022
- Discount of 10 euro cents from November 1 to December 31, 2022
- It will be deleted as of January 1, 2023
No change in sight at the pump for motorists! The discount of 30 cents per liter of fuel will apply in exactly the same way as that of 18 cents in force since April 1, 2022. It is applied automatically at the time of payment, at the cash desk or by credit card at the pump. Contrary to what has been announced, the price displayed at the pump is ultimately the one you will ultimately pay. There is therefore no calculation to be made or discount to be requested from the pump, making the operation more legible and simple for the consumer. All fuels are concerned, unleaded 95, 95 E10, 98, diesel such as E85, liquefied natural gas or LPG. Here is the device summarized in three points:
- The measure took effect on Friday, April 1, 2022 and is valid until the end of summer.
- The National Assembly voted on July 27, 2022 to extend the system, the discount increasing to 30 cents in September and October before being lowered to 10 cents for the last two months of 2022.
- This discount measure of 18 cents/litre of fuel will increase to 30 cents in September and is valid on all fuels, even E85 at the already lower price. If you drive on diesel with your diesel vehicle, you are therefore just as concerned as if you drive on unleaded petrol.
- The discount is immediate for the motorist. The price after discount is displayed directly at the pump and via the totem panels at the entrance.
No need to be a big wheeler or to justify business trips. Everyone will benefit from this feature, whether you have a store loyalty card or not. This measure concerns both households and businesses and is valid for all fuels, diesel, unleaded petrol such as E85. The discount is displayed directly on the totems present in service stations.
In a press release published on July 22, 2022, the Total group indicated a drop in fuel prices at its service stations. “From September 1 to November 1, TotalEnergies will lower the price of petroleum fuels sold in stations by twenty euro cents per liter (…) then by ten euro cents per liter from November 1 to December 31”, explains the group in this press release.
The fuel discount will not apply to heating oil, as indicated on the website of the Ministry of the Economy. This discount of 30 cents from the start of the school year will concern diesel, gasoline (SP95, SP98-E5, SP-95-E10), super ethanol (E85), diesel ethanol (ED95), fishing diesel, diesel (GNR), liquefied petroleum gas fuel (LPG-c), natural gas vehicle (NGV) in compressed (CNG) or liquefied (LNG) form.
