I tried this yesterday - no luck, the Esso app geolocation couldn't identify which filling station I had visited, so asked me to scan the QR code on the pump... but it was dark and that didn't work either. There didn't seem to be any way to set the location manually. So probably no money off fuel for me, although I'll also try again during daylight before giving it up!

I've just been reading the ratings for the ESSO App on the Play Store........It seems like you have been luckier than some Sarah! A few innocent, but unfortunate, folk have apparently received letters from the police being accused of driving off without paying for their fuel when using this App. Yikes!! :shock:

Hopefully that doesn't happen often. It's rubbish though, I've now had 5 unsuccessful visits to Esso forecourts. The nearest is only 2 minutes away and the next another 3 minutes; the local area has become dominated by Esso for some reason.

I was having no luck using my Kindle Fire 10 so in a last attempt to win this one decided to dig out my obsolete Hudl 2 instead, installed the Esso app and found it worked much better on that device. The geolocation detection actually knows where I am and the QR reader works too, so I had high hopes and even went to the filling station armed with an empty petrol can to be sure I had enough capacity for a £35 transaction... only for the thing to tell me "Sorry mobile payments are currently unavailable!" this time! :cry:

Finally had success with the Esso app today but the experience has been far too much trouble. The filling station that worked has fuel priced 7p/litre more than locally, so on 30 litres I paid an extra £2.10 for the privilege of being a customer there. I went into the shop to ensure that the cashier knew I'd paid using the app, however the queue was long and moving really slowly, so gave up and drove off after a couple of minutes. The saved PayPal offer didn't either reduce the amount charged or re-credit my account automatically with the bonus, so had to complain to receive the £5. The offer at Amex hasn't triggered (yet) either - might need to complain there too!
