The only real difference is the quality of maintenance on the tanks and pumps at the fuel station, as far as the fuel goes even the cheapest is still above the minimum standard else it wouldn't be allowed . The same people come out of the woodwork time and again telling us how supermarket fuel is rubbish, but never back up why - the reason, their isn't a reason. Simple tribal rubbish as present in all walks of life where people seem to think that another brand is better, even though the product is a commodity and isn't, but because they buy it it it has to be better.

Car manufacturers create their cars to be suitable not only for the UK's relatively high standard, but also standard in other countries where fuel contamination and low quality is the norm. If you want to waste money believing it's poor then knock your self out and waste money, but let's not bring everyone else along for your delusions.

The difference between good fuel and bad fuel has always been down to the maintenance of the pumps (in this country) and crucially the tanks at the fuel station. Over they years a couple of petrol stations have had water getting in to their fuel with leaks in the tanks (or other contaminants) getting in. This lack of maintenance can cause issues as you don't want a watered down mix, or worse still filling up when the tanks are low and getting silt in your tank.

I’ve used asda diesel for years and not had any problems, where I live Shell is 1.29 and asda is 1.08 so I never go to Shell.

Sorry Dave first post, that’s why I took a picture paints a thousand words
Much cheaper than in my local fuels shop
Shell, under £1... Came over all faint for a moment! Greedy grabbing b'stards haven't past on any savings around here. Still 122.9

Great post and good for whoever can get it. I've used supermarket fuel for years without problems. Going back for ever I do remember one of the major fuel suppliers, can't be sure if it was Shell or not selling petrol that had an additive that had dire detrimental affects on petrol engines.....all pre emission controls and awareness times! Happy motoring and not been on the roads for 4 weeks now, anyone care to comment on how it's looking as I hear lorry traffic is substantially down. When I go for my once a day walk it's quiet, but still loads of cars going around somewhere!
How much for vpower petrol?
2-Star will be back at this rate!

Yes, The only differences are the additives. Sure Shell may use better detergents etc..

Additives are additives though, all comes out of the same place but the additives can or cannot make the difference.

They do test the fuel regularly does prevent some contamination though.

Yeah, companies like Adler and Allan are contracted to test, but it's not as regular as you might think, especially for stations that are let's say "a bit dodgy". My point being the chances of getting a dodgy batch from a supermarket are equal to that of a big name oil company. The variable which could cause quality issues is going to be the fuel station and it's attitude towards maintenance.

Wow smashed it
Great! Now, if only I had some place to go!
I filled my tank on the 20th March and it's still full! I wish I could drive but stuck in isolation!
Hold off. The price will fall further.

Have you ever seen the filters in a forecourt fuel pump? no 'silt' is getting through them.
Yay, I live in Helensburgh, hadn't noticed it had gotten so low, must top up.

At the pressure they are run at there is no doubt that particles could get through the filters if present in a lowly filled neglected tank. Yes, for 99.8% of Petrol stations there should have good enough maintenance to stop debris ever being possible, as I said it only takes one bad egg of a dodgy garage to skimp of maintenance of pump & tanks.

As I also said above the biggest risk by far is water in the tank. Near enough every story of contamination is due to water. Either through flooding, damaged tanks, malicious acts, or sometimes messes up at the refinery with the wrong chemicals being added or cleaning chemical for the tanker being left in.


There is no way the filters are good enough to catch everything if the tanks have been breached or contaminated

1.089p? You mean £1.089 or 108.9p. please amend
It'll be a while until garages sell the stock they have, s'pose.

There you go hope it didn’t effect you too much
It's been £1.08 for diesel for the last 2 weeks in my area...even Shell has had to drop to £1.12...what is unacceptable is the 11p difference between petrol and diesel prices...the distilling costs are nowhere near that price difference...CO2 tax through the back door...
Edited by: "John.Constantine" 8th Apr
I’m waiting for sub £1 diesel then I will buy 400 litres. In the future I can see diesel skyrocketing to £1.50 per litre.

It could be cheap as waitrose Helebsbrurgh is closing in a few weeks.
99.9 for unleaded, Shell is still charging 116.9 where I am & harvest energy is 119.9.

At least Shell and alike supply their own product instead of sourcing the cheapest available at any given time. As that seemed to have caused Tesco and Morrison's problem with silicon contaminated fuel back in 2007.
