Does Ford actually recommend super unleaded

On the back cover of my service book there is a picture of man refuelling his car from a BP Ultimate pump and under the heading "Fuel with thought" it states:

When you fuel your car, you're not just filling your tank, you're feeding your engine. That's why Ford recommends high quality fuels. They help clean and protect your engine and give you better fuel economy, more power and acceleration than ordinary fuels. So the next time you fuel your Ford, fuel with thought.

 My understanding of this is that by stating high quality fuels as opposed to quality fuels Ford are recommending super unleaded to get the best from your engine.

I've read somewhere that the sensors in the car can adjust to either super unleaded or normal 95ron, so it wouldnt hurt to put either in but for more quality fuels you might get more MPG, bhp etc but try it for yourself!

Only a car calibrated for Super Unleaded would do that.. marginal (if any) benefits otherwise.

The AA says:

"Premium fuels do contain more effective detergent additives which help the removal, and prevent formation of carbon and gum deposits on valves and other components inside the combustion chamber,

If you’re planning to keep the car long term, using a premium fuel every fourth tank can help engine longevity and maintain performance over time."

What's standard Asda petrol as that's all I ever use 

95ron.

I don't think Asda even do a premium fuel tbh.

I used to use BP 97ron which was 10p per litre more than 95ron until I found Tesco (actually Esso Fuel) do the Momentum 99 for only 5p per litre more than 95ron.
