They are popping up everywhere and their 95 is cheap.


The one in Paihia I used a couple weeks back and the lady had a mobil card, inside was mobil oils and on their website they list Mobile fuel safety information.


I paid $1.82 for 95, which is the minimum for my car, sick of paying BP/Caltex pricings and not all Mobils stock 95.


She said the supplier is transfuel or something, I cant remember the name..... dont quote me. She told me a bit about their history and where they are from (west cost NI). I say go small fuel retailer go, If its 95 RON then they have my business.

You from Straya Maate? Yeah, Y-toe-ma not just up the road from warrengamba. Maybe near Otorohanga (probably doesn't rhyme).

Check out their app

They bin delivering fuel to rural customers for years.

As far as I know all fuel companies except gull get their fuel from the same sources in NZ. But yes Waitomo ((notice the o at the end). Which means 'wet cave' in Maori) seem to be affiliated with Mobil.

Yep I knew of them from a Farm fuel perspective a long time ago, but it was the younger chaps initiative to go retail is my understanding.


From what Ive been told their are 4 fuel wholesalers not just 1.


Yep I know a little Maori being partly one ;-p. I meant Waitomo lol. 


I think the must be using the same wholesaler as Mobil, I just cant remember the name, Trans..... (no jokes pls) something.


I might flick them an email to confirm, its hard to find a Mobil with 95 nearby and its more expensive anyway. The only cheap fuel for me will be using my AA card over 7 weeks of groceries and getting 27c off a litre for one fill a month at bp/caltex.


So I think if their fuel is actually 95 RON, I think they are in for good customer loyalty.

In the petrol price investigation thread, you'll see a few quotes I posted from the Oil Refinery. Basically saying there are 3 major players/suppliers (of which are major shareholders in the refinery) with various faced brands under their hat. And a number of offshoot smaller players can also buy it direct, or these suppliers. Comes from the same bulk crude. And then is stored in their own facilities. Of which other companies can then cross-fill/supply from 




The four largest domestic oil companies own bulk storage facilities throughout New Zealand and have agreements in place which allow access to each other’s storage facilities. This enables the companies to draw stock from any location, if they have authorisation and sufficient stock in another location. This pooled storage system allows the companies to jointly manage stock levels and co-ordinate import shipments of petroleum products.

Yes, much of the fuel from Caltex/Mobil/BP/Z comes from Marsden Point which refines imported crude. But they also import refined products and while they pool storage, they dose their own blends from it at the tanker load-out, so the petrol is not actually the same between the brands.

Yep I agree and thats what I was advised. I was advised to make sure my car runs on RON 95 minimum and that just because a station says 95 doesnt mean it is RON, or garunteed minimum. Thats why I like Mobil and why I was wondering if Waitomo is RON compliance.
