Either this is a change that's come about from being bought by the Japanese parent company or its a response to the people spoofing their location to lock in very cheap prices.
People were not spoofing their location. iPhone does not allow it, I'm unsure on Android. Clearly people flew to places that had the cheaper prices then flew back to take advantage of the discount.
 
Or like me, you've managed to lock in $1.6x and used it when the price has shot up for $2.2x. Given how volatile the prices have been, its not impossible. And sometimes there is massive variation between prices near home versus work, so I'll lock in the low price and use elsewhere when I need to fill up.
Even the guy behind the counter was impressed with my saving 😂

And in today's installment of "WTF is @kangarooflyer88 on about":

Here's pages and pages of "how to" and "where is" on OzB saying precisely the opposite. Location spoofing was actually monetised.
 
Not only that, but also more so, for accounts that do not have on going transactions, so this means, that for those of us who live in SA and want to easily collect VFF points with out FB, and without flying, would have to make an effort to keep using 7 eleven each time we go interstate.
Ie, go to a place where there is a 7 eleven, and buy, even something small, so that there is activity.
 
+1 catches the train to Western Sydney where she works...I often ask her to to do a Fuel Lock on the train and then use it at a 7 11 petrol station closer to home where the price can be 30 to 40c higher! Also very useful to lock a low fuel price when the fuel cycle price is low and suddently it is at a peak a week later. All good things come to an end as usual...

It's widely known that many were spoofing their location to get cheap 7-11 Fuel Locks. OzBargain would regularly list 'deals' for cheap 7-11 fuel in random parts of Australia including GPS coordinates for the spoofing app. Some set up websites to compile the cheapest 7-11 fuel in Australia like this. Search for 'OzBargain chopper' on Google.

Well played. I was amazed recently at the 20+ c/L difference between Frankston (cheaper) and Mornington a few kms down the road. We won't notice as here in CBR the spread with Queanbeyan isn't that great.

At the moment there is a 20c+ spread across Canberra. Fyshwick (which is normally cheaper) is 204.9c for Supreme 98+, the city is 223.3c (the Braddon/Cool tax?), and Kippax 196.9c (and my local).
 
People not spoofing their location. Hahaha who said that again, massive eye roll.
Nearly fell off my chair reading that line.

I like to game the system as much as possible, loop holes etc but never ventured down this path, too deceitful for be.
 
@kookaburra75 That sounds about right, other than Fyshwick not being the cheapest (weird). We won't be affected by the cap as much as others, on a regular basis at least. I try to match with Queanbeyan (Karabar specifically) when I'm over that way. I use the Petrolspy app (says 191.9c for that fancy fuel at Karabar).

I regularly lock in at 190 or less just before the fuel price goes up and then use at 240 at the top of the cycle before my lock runs out. That 50c saving per litre will now be halved.
