Just to stir things up a bit and re-ignite an old argument at this time of good will to all men, and of course women, here's a reply from David Mills in response to the article on supermarket fuel quality published on Petrolprices.com.

No doubt all honestly held opinions and prejudices on either side of the debate will remain unchanged!Big smile

"Having been a British Standards assessor of fuel companies I can assure everyone that there is no difference between any of them They all draw from the same refineries and have to meet the same British and European standards. Additives may vary between suppliers but they are mostly marketing hype and make no noticeable difference to performance, unless sold as premium brands. Even then the claimed improvements are dubious, and mostly based on manufacturers’ own (usually undisclosed) tests.

Personally I always fill up with supermarket fuel."

I have to admit to having a little chuckle when filling my Fiesta at the Shell (I think) station. There's an advert there telling me if I use their super duper stuff I'll be using the same stuff as Lewis Hamilton or someone like that. There's a picture of a F1 racing car and I always wonder how many people fall for it, jumping in their Fiesta and hammering through Chippenham at 180mph
