I have driven both petrol and diesel over the last 3 months, and always get better resposes out of both when i use shell fuel over other. I monitor MPG by the tank, 0-60 by the day etc, and I always find better performance, economy and smooth running with Shell over the likes of Tesco and / or sainsbury's.

i use shell, but have used tesco..... shell is far better than average supermarket fuel, due to the extra processes it goes through at the refinary..... i know a bloke who delivers bp fuel, he says keep far away...... (carnt say a reason)

I aint no expert but I personally think it's worth it as it keeps your engine tip top n increases mpg it's proven that shell v power n bp ultimate diesel increases a few bhp over a year or so of usage (Fith Gear n various other surveys I have read over many years)

N it ain't a 13p difference here where I am in dagenham lol even if it was I still think it's worth it
in actual fact if it increases mpg so it IS worth it ain't it fella?

But like I said
It's better on everything I have been using (petrol v power) for the past year n giving you my experience n feed back that's all ;)

I alternate between BP standard diesel and the ultimate, out of 4 fill ups at least 1 will be ultimate if noty more, I tend to use BP as it appears to make my car run smoother, to be honest I have never really seen a rise in mpg but as long as my car runs nice I am not too bothered about getting extra miles

I don't use supermarket diesel these days as I've read that it lacks many of the additives in the equivalent grades of branded fuel and this can be detrimental, long-term, to the very fine tolerances in modern fuel systems. Although they claim it all comes from the same tanks at the distribution centre it's said that the additives are actually put in as the tankers are loaded and their tanks have different compartments for different customers. At the last service the guy offered me a fuel treatment but when I said I don't use supermarket fuel he replied in that case I wouldn't need it.

In my area BP tends to be consistently the most expensive branded fuel.

Apparently they add the extra bits into the tanker itself before they go on a delivery (depending which garage)

V-Power Deisel has been much smoother and responsive than BP Ultimate for me on my 1.8 TDCi
