Gull starts Labour Weekend early: 6 cents off at the pump

Auckland, 18 October 2012 – Hard working kiwi motorists will not only celebrate the 8 hour working day this coming Labour Day, they’ll also have the chance to fill up and save at Gull, with a generous pre-holiday weekend promotion.

We want our customers to have a great Labour weekend says Dave Bodger, General Manager of Gull New Zealand.

“So we’re kicking the long weekend off early with a stonkingly good discount of 6 cents off per litre, from 7am Thursday to midday Friday. To those folk heading out of town we say ‘fill up at Gull’ and your dollar will go further. Bring your Countdown vouchers and save even more.

“At Gull, we work hard to keep the prices down, and deliver value to the kiwi motorist. It’s that simple,” says Bodger.

The discount day starts at 7am Thursday 18 October, and runs until midday Friday 19 October. The most common price at Gull sites will be*:

About Gull
Gull New Zealand is the independent oil company that is credited with keeping the fuel market competitive and giving savings to the Kiwi motorist. It has become a serious player, offering a real choice for motorists in an extremely competitive market. The company remains today a family owned operation.

Gull New Zealand was founded in 1998 by the Rae family who saw the need and potential for an independent energy supplier. Adherence to a philosophy of low cost management, prudent investment decisions and a carefully planned marketing strategy commenced with the building of a state of the art terminal in Mount Maunganui in 1998. Tanks were relocated from Marsden Point by barge, a feat the opposition said was “impossible”.

Gull New Zealand made the first retail sales of petrol in 1999 and has grown the network to over 40 branded sites.

Gull has been a first mover in introducing innovative new products to the New Zealand energy market. These include low sulphur diesel bringing environmental benefits well ahead of the opposition, as well as New Zealand’s first biofuel, Gull Force 10 (a 10% ethanol mixed with premium gasoline giving higher octane and cleaner performance).

2010 saw Gull achieve another first and extend its environmental focus with release of Gull Diesel Max, a high quality bio diesel blend sourced from sustainable New Zealand vegetable oil.

Gull now has four service stations that only sell bio fuels which is another first for New Zealand.
