    Is it actually worth filling up with the ‘premium’ petrol, especially in a (relatively) high power engine? (Audi 1.8T / 200hp

    try one tank of VPower and see what you think (not the others – lots of people report they make no difference).

    Due to the ‘tanker driver strike’ panic I had to fill up last time with normal Shell petrol and notice it.

    Well the tanks very nearly empty, so I’ll fill it up (at great expense!) with some VPower stuff.

    not if you do get the extra mileage out of it, as many people report. I get an extra 40-50 miles out of a tank, as long as I ignore the novelty of the extra torque.

    I drive conservatively 90% of the time, just occasionally the extra oomph gets unleashed.

    Average MPG seems to hover between 35-37.

    as a former buyer of fuel for tesco i can tell you the fuel is the same as everybody elses

    Maybe, but that Asda fuel, thats the stuff they mop up off the floor…

    Must admit, of the supermarket diesel – I’ve always found Asda’s offering to be the bottom of the pile.
    Morrisons, in MPG & performance seems to be very close if not identical to the big boys. The other supermarket branded diesel somewhere inbetween.

    …All circumstantial of course ….YMMV – Sorry, couldn’t resist the pun 😉

    “I use my local National Tyre and Autocare centre. I would consider myself quite handy as I’ve fixed my aircon..glow plugs and do all the other filters. However they charge about £44 for oil change, filter and disposal of the oil. To buy the the oil its about £40 anyway. “

    aye mostly notorious for shite oil and shite filters ….

    ill stick to doing it my self with known kit.
