Depends on where you get it. Unlike in good old SA different garages charge different prices within the same town. Many supermarkets also have a system whereby you get discount on your fuel if you buy it from a partner garage. You take in your till slip when paying for your fuel and you get a couple of cents per liter off.

I know I should not just convert, but NZ$1 = R5.27 (currently) .... that is NZ$1.75 (average) * R5.27 = R9.22/liter. We're sitting at R7.50/l in SA at the moment and that is high. YIKES?
