how much do u pay4 E10 gas in metro manila?

yesterday (may 17, 2009), i filled up my gas tank at d shell edsa south triangle gas station. dey’r no longer selling e10 so i just settled 4an unleaded since i’m goin 2laguna & d price of php 32.25 per liter is cheaper than in fairview area (php 34.70/l) wer i reside. but wen i passed by total gas station near boni ave. along edsa….d price of e10 was only php 30.70/l…..a nearby sta (caltex) sells almost d same price 4an e10 gas. guess competition made tis stations sell cheaper….

since d price of gasoline is very liquid (dey change frequently fr sta. 2sta.), itz very hard 2fill up fr d cheapest gas sta. d key is 2b always vigilant!

a shell gas station

a shell gas station

will try total or caltex in boni ave. edsa nxt tme. dey’r fairly decent stations so i don’t think dey will sell low quality fuels as stated (natural defense) by high-priced competitors…

    Hi Eric,

    Just read your email today. There is no regular posting of petroleum product prices in Metro Manila done by the government nowadays because the oil industry is already deregulated (Republic Act 8479 otherwise known as the Downstream Oil Industry Deregulation Act of 1998). “An Act Deregulating the Downstream Oil Industry, and for Other Purposes.”

    Posting of suggested retail prices of petroleum products can be seen in various retail outlets (gasoline stations) as madated by the law. Market forces dictates the prices of petroleum products that is why said prices varies from different retail outlets nationwide. In a deregulated environment, consumers have the freedom to choose where they want to gas up and take into consideration the pump price. Of course, the oil companies on their part offers lower gas prices, after-sales-services, etc. in order to compete with other gas stations. Sometimes they gave promos and freebies as come on to consumers.

    Although the government continues to monitor petroleum product prices and checks the quality (ex: adulteration) of such products for consumer protection and welfare. The government also entertain complaints from the consumers and act as mediator between the oil companies and consumers in a case to case basis.

    Unlike before when the downstream oil industry was still regulated, it was the Energy Regulatory Board (ERB) and now the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) who is mandated to set and post prices of petroleum products.

    E10 fuel used – notice any change in the performance of your automobile ?

      (as a backgrounder), i’m used 2fill my tank w/ unleaded gas until honda phils. announced late last yr dat it is safe 2use e10 gas in my 2006 honda city (itz been almost 3yrs b4 i finally used e10).

      pertron e10 gives better acceleration (due 2higher octane) but i’m ok w/ shell or caltex e10 since i try 2drive eco-efficiently, i.e. i don’t accelerate or brake rapidly….d idea is 2drive smoothly & safely, not necessarily fast…

      d feel of better acceleration w/ fuel like v-power or blaze can’t b experienced in e10 fuels though….

      der r companies in germany dat optimizes car acceleration whilst lowers itz emission (good combustion) thus giving more power & less enviro impact….dey use computer software as part of deir tools…hope we’ll have service companies like tis in d phils in d near future 4pple who wanted 2tweak deir cars 4more power while protecting d environment at d same time….
