This is an on-pack comp, with a 12 digit code included on special Yorkie chocolate bars.

There are 150 tanks full of fuel on offer overall. 100 of these will be won by people who are lucky enough to open one of these special Yorkie bars and discovering that it contains a winning ticket.

The other 50 will be given to people who enter their wrapper code online and are lucky enough to win.

The runner up prize is a Yorkie bar - with thousands of these available to give away, according to organisers.

You can read the T&Cs on-site, but here are some highlights: You can enter if you're over 18 and live in the UK, Republic of Ireland, the Channel Islands or Isle of Man and the comp closes March 31st next year. Details about how to send in a no-purchase entry in NI are also included in the T&Cs.

Car comps  

Just recently, the South Wales Evening Post reported the story of Pauline Clark, 56, who was lucky enough to win a Nissan in a local comp.

She's now the owner of a Nissan Micra, thanks to the Evening Post competition.

"This has been one of our more popular competitions — and it's hardly surprising when there's a new car up for grabs," commented editor, Jonathan Roberts, to his own paper.  

There are car comps all over the net at the moment - perfect if this story of good luck has sparked your interest.

For example, if you fancy a Peugeot 107 Access, head over to the Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks site.

This model is the top prize in an online newsletter sign-up comp on the site, which has a closing date of September 12th this year.

The second and third prizes are exciting too: a holiday and an iPad.

This next comp won't actually give the winner a car to keep, but it will give them an exciting trip in a car they'd likely love to own.

This Shakespeare Country comp is an online entry form competition, where the winner will get a drive in an MGB Roadster for a day - collected from near Warwick.

There's a stipulation that you have to be 25 or older (up to age 75) in order to enter. The closing date is May 12th.
