I am just wondering if changing where I fill up all the time will have any negative effects on my cars performance? Thanks.

Personally, I think it depends if you are using a higher octane fuel then back to a low octane. Such as tesco's momentum to normal fuel then to a shell fuel. But if your using normal fuel all the time, such as the standard 95 octane(correct me if I'm wrong), I don't see a problem.

When you say changing all the time is it just different garages or different fuel types?

Give Esso a go if there's one near you :)

Big brands spend time and money researching fuels. They put additives in etc, whereas supermarket fuel has none. So as long as you stick to a big brand eg shell, esso etc, you are unlikely to see any difference. I'd personally cut out the Morrison's if I were you, but the others are fine :).
