Supermarkets will meet minimum standards, branded fuels will exceed them
I can't disagree but I am very sceptical about that.

According to my spreadsheet I'm getting 40.06 mpg on average. Trip computer is usually a little over optimistic.
Got a 400 mile mostly motorway round trip this week, will be interesting to see how it affects things.

Used BP Ultimate, noticed little difference in performance, just I wanted an engine clean really.

I hate you all I get a measly 32.4 mpg.... But I literally do nothing but city driving. Which takes about 35 mins to do 9 miles. Constant stop starting. Grrrr
Youre doing pretty well under those conditions actually !

On the first 10 fill ups from new, the mpg on the trip was within 1mpg, both above & below.
Usually average about 55-60mpg, mostly out of town driving. Once a month I do a 200 mile round trip, which drops it into the low 50's.
Fill up at whoever is the cheapest, never noticed an difference in fuel economy.

I have a 1.25 zetec petrol, I fill up using shell fuels. I was averaging 27 mpg, However i've recently installed wind deflectors and the mpg increased to 30 mpg (average). i also change gears at About 3500 rpm average (not when the arrow says too) Sometimes i take the lead out of my boots and can get upto 40 mpg. Just wondering what other peeps average on a 1.25?
Facinating, this proves that smaller engine cars are less economical than larger engine cars because they have to work harder to compensate for the power deficit. My 1.6 averages 44 mpg doing 70% motorway, 30% town driving. I normally don't rev more than I need to and because I don't do more than 70 mph on the motorway the engine speed doesn't go above 3000 rpm. I find the 1.6 petrol pulls well from low down so it still feels quite quick around town and has s subtle but noticeable surge of torque after changing up a gear from low revs. And it's quite satisfying to know that when you really want to get going you can drop into second and floor it all the way to the red line
