Auto Trader Launches Competition Giving Away £2,000 in Free Fuel

August 6, 2012

LONDON, August 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Auto Trader, the UK’s number one site

to buy and sell new and used cars, is giving away GBP100 of free fuel to five lucky
winners every week throughout August.

The cost of fuel is the main financial concern for motorists when it comes to running
a car[1], and with the price of petrol rising[2], Auto Trader is helping to ease the
burden by entering every customer that purchases a Vehicle Check
[http://www.autotrader.co.uk/vehiclecheck/vehiclecheck.jsp ], powered by Experian, into a
prize draw to win one of twenty fuel voucher giveaways.

Vehicle Check provides customers with peace of mind before purchasing. Simply by
entering the vehicle registration number, buyers can carry out a number of checks on the
car they intend to buy – including if the vehicle has been reported stolen, changed
registration details, has any outstanding finance or mileage data[3].
