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?

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 :).
