My dealer called today and asked me if I wanted him to put in £10 of fuel before I collected on Wednesday....I would pay them £10 on Wed morn.

I do appreciate that 'margins are tight' but no fuel?

Last new car was back in 2007 and that came with half a tank

So we've nothing, two full tanks and one quarter tank.

Doesn't seem that consistent? :(

I suppose I can't complain as got my metallic paint free and a set of mats, so guess they're being justifiably stingy.

Ans, as the other person with least fuel what extras did you get free out of your dealer?

As of late 2016 all newly manufactured cars come with car mats as standard (industry agreed apparently). So it all boils down to when your car was actually made and how close to the end of the year it was.

My sales guy ordered some in just in case but told me I only need to buy them if it doesn't have any :)

I negotiated a full tank but I was told that the norm was that they would put in £15 of fuel and put £15 on the invoice! Not as bad as a car I ordered on the internet and was delivered to my home. It ran out of fuel getting it off the transporter! The delievry driver had to take me round to the garage where we bought a petrol can and filled it.

It didn't cross my mind to ask the dealer about fuel as part of the negotiations. The fuel warning light came on after 2 miles of my journey home !!
I hadn't negotiated any extras but had managed to negotiate a good deal on my trade-in.
It still seemed a bit tight of them though and soured what had otherwise been a good buying experience...... all for the sake of £10-20.
