With governmental fuel levies increasing by 52c per litre on 4 April, everyone can do with a bit of saving on petrol costs. This means we will be paying taxes of R3.62 per litre of petrol. This is in addition to last year’s hike of 30c per litre.

Here’s how you can get some rewards and earn loyalty kickbacks on your fuel purchases.
