Well its not free is it - its surely part of the on-the-road price, but where is it written down?
Or is it dependant on individual dealers practices? I dont want the embarrassment of arguing with the dealer when I pick it up, only to not be able to prove that I,ve paid for the 'free' tankfull (if they don't give it to me).

I got half a tank when I picked up mine :( Mind you the dealer said that was actually more than they usually give.

There's a thread somewhere on this site about what freebies people got on delivery. Someone joked that the dealer was able to demonstrate the low-fuel indicator since they'd put so little petrol in :p

Well I imagine all dealers are different - I wouldn't bet on a full tank being part of the on-the-road price :)

I got a chockers tank.

I assumed it was part of 'pre-delivery and prep' ?

Even if it's free it has to be listed on the invoice. VAT purposes ;)

My car was delivered to me from my garage which is a good 40 minutes drive away (I'm fussy and none of the local garages are good enough fo me!) and it had 3/4 tank, so it would have had a brimmed tank when it set off.

Oh, and both the delivers and the fuel was free! :D

On my invoice it included in the price was a full tank of petrol, which the dealer tried to tell me was thrown in out of courtesy, so out of courtesy i asked for the £40 odd to be taken off the cost :p ,. Ended up with a FULL tank and £40 reduction.

LOL - Nice one!!
On my order sheet, it says this about the 'Road Pack' : Delivery Plates, Anti Freeze, Dealer Preperation, Petrol, Emergency Service - £316.09. Add VAT to that comes to £371.40,
which seems a strange figure. So I have paid for petrol (or at least I will when the car arrives),
but I don't know how much I,ve been charged for, unless someone can tell me what the on-the-road price is, if its fixed.
