As two thirds of drivers admit fuel prices have altered

their driving habits, local Vauxhall dealer, Truro and Falmouth Vauxhall, is

helping motorists take to the road for less by offering customers £500 of free

fuel at their forthcoming Big Event weekend.


The poll, which was commissioned by Vauxhall*, also revealed

that the cost of fuel would influence the purchasing decisions of 78 per cent

of drivers when buying a new vehicle, whilst 32 per cent of drivers admitted

seeking out petrol stations which offer the most competitive fuel prices.


Fortunately for motorists in the South West, between Friday

16th and Monday 19th November, the dealer, with branches in Truro and Falmouth,

is hosting the special event whereby customers who purchase a brand new

Vauxhall vehicle, such as Vauxhall's brand new sub-compact SUV, the Mokka, can

drive away with £500 of free fuel**.


Brett Willey, Retail Operator at Truro and Falmouth Vauxhall,

comments: "It is not surprising to discover that the increase in fuel prices is

having a significant impact on drivers – indeed, three quarters are using their

car less as the costs of running their vehicle mount up.


"We're keen to ensure people continue to enjoy getting out

and about, so it will come as welcome news that, based on the average amount

drivers in the South West spend on fuel each week (£29), the offer of £500 of

free fuel would give motorists in the area over four months of free driving!"


Helping drivers take to the road for less

In addition, during the four-day event, customers at the

dealership can also take advantage of Vauxhall's unique and innovative zero per

cent APR Flexible Finance scheme***.


Available on new cars from the Vauxhall range, Flexible

Finance allows customers to tailor their financial plans to suit them. With no

minimum deposit, zero  per cent APR and

flexible payment terms, which can vary between 24 and 60 months, motorists are

able to purchase a brand new Vauxhall for a monthly payment that fits in with

their personal budget.


What's more, Vauxhall is offering up to £1,000 deposit

contribution on a range of new cars purchased on Flexible Finance. This,

combined with the free fuel offer available throughout The Big Event weekend,

allows customers to save even more when purchasing a new Vauxhall.


Plus, all new Vauxhall cars also come with a warranty which

could now last a lifetime, so customers can be confident that they are getting

the best possible aftercare and service. Available to the first owner of all

new Vauxhall cars, the warranty is valid for the lifetime of the vehicle up to

a maximum of 100,000 miles.


Brett Willey concludes: "We recognise that it's a

challenging time at the moment, with many motorists taking much more care when

planning and managing the costs of running their car and so we are really

looking forward to helping customers find their ideal Vauxhall, take advantage

of our highly competitive offers and drive away with free fuel during The Big



During the event period, customers purchasing a new car will

also be able to enjoy a discount of 20 per cent off accessories fitted by Truro

and Falmouth Vauxhall.


Take a step out of the ordinary with Mokka

To make the Big Event even more exciting, Truro and Falmouth

Vauxhall is delighted to be giving motorists in the area the first chance to

see for themselves Vauxhall's brand new sub-compact SUV, the stunning



Available to order from the retailer now at a keen starting

price of just £15,995, the rugged, refined 5-seater vehicle is a refreshing

addition to Vauxhall's already broad vehicle range and offers dynamic design,

economical engine options and versatile space.


Whilst the Mokka has been designed to perform efficiently in

urban environments, it also boasts the ability to be driven off-road when the

need arises, having both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive variants



And to make buying the new sub-compact SUV even more

affordable, customers have the option to take to the road in the brand new

vehicle on Vauxhall's zero  per cent APR

Flexible Finance scheme.


A van-tastic deal

In addition to driving away with £500 free fuel during the

Big Event, van customers who purchase any new Vauxhall commercial vehicle can

also benefit from Vauxhall's innovative '4x4x4x4' offer.


With four years' zero per cent APR Representative finance,

four years' free servicing including routine service parts and labour, four

years' breakdown assistance provided by the AA and four years' warranty, the

offer makes a Vauxhall commercial vehicle a great-value choice.


Customers simply choose the model that suits their business

needs, pay a minimum 20 per cent deposit of VAT excluding price (plus VAT on

the total transaction price), and make regular repayments for the agreed term

at zero  per cent APR Representative for

four years.
