No problems with momentum but its much dearer I realise most fuels come from the same plants but they're skimping out on additives compared to brands like BP/Esso/Gulf/ShellDoesn't happen with standard fuels from the above companies. Some people are completely oblivious to it though and don't recognise any issues simply because they're used to them



I'll take the bate because I am bored. What complete and utter cobblers. You stated the obvious fact that it all comes from the same refineries, so the snake oil that BP/ESSO/GULF, etc. choose to add is of no interest to those of us with more sense than money.
Edit. I am old enough to remember 'Formula Shell', enough said.

Buy a game board or something, once you have your 10p off voucher. Use it and then return the item back for a refund.
Thanks for reminder that my coupon runs out tomorrow !

Must pop in to Tesco before it does.

No its not, don't be daft.

It comes from the same refineries but different additives are added in different quantities. Supermarket fuels have much much less compared to others. Its no secret and been tested multiple times yet the average consumer with no knowledge of these things thinks they're all the same!

If a consumer filling up at Tesco since forever has a 1.2k RPM idle, they'll never know its a problem until they switch to another fuel - and not only once, the ECU's can take a while to adjust, hence why switching to 97+ ron for 1 fill in a year is bound to do nothing much.
Depends what part of the country as petrol is £1.19 where I am

It's mad isn't it. I'm convinced that some people see a "supermarket name" on something and imagine a group of people distilling the fuel at the back of one of their superstores.
It's like buying oil. My car requires Fully Synthetic and I'll happily buy Halford's own stuff as it meets all of the manufacturer's requirements, but I'm convinced people think the Saturday staff mix it onsite around the back.
So to the fuel. I've been using Tesco fuel for a very long time. I currently have a car that makes use of higher octane fuels - all petrol cars can use the "premium fuels" but many just use it as is, some cars detect the higher octane and map the car accordingly.
My car gets better mileage, less stuffer and overall better performance over each of the "Premium brands" I've tried. With fuel so expensive and with many garages within driving distance I'm not stuck at Tesco - I could be using anything.
But Momentum 99 is just the best for my car, hands down.

Similar here, where the heck is it still 1.16???

Typical Tescos, charging upteen different prices for the same product, my Tescos is one of the most profitable per sq foot in the country, and why is that? Because the next nearest competition is 15-20 miles away so they can charge what the heck they like.... and no, it doesn't cost them more money to deliver the stuff here....

It's funny how i always see Police cars and ambulances filling up at Tesco around here, they have the option of Shell or Esso but it's always Tesco they go to... If supermarket fuel was truly worse do you think vehicles that get a proper hammering and probably have insider knowledge would use inferior fuel..

I dont know much about this stuff. All i do know is my driving instructor told me that he always pays a bit extra for the premium petrol. Surely a driver instructor would know considering they do thousands of miles every month.

My neighbour's brother is a petrol tanker driver delivering fuel from the Grangemouth refinery. The basic fuel is exactly the same. Anything added is something that anyone can buy from a multitude of locations, I would prefer to choose my own snake oil as and when I feel it is needed. Any comment about engine running problems are more to do with a badly serviced car, or some other problem in the fuel/ignition system. Been driving for well over 40 years, and used every fuel supply sold in UK, but I just put in whatever is cheapest, and I have never had a fuel related problem.
Well then, I have to throw in my ten pence into the pot.

I use to work as a Technical Controller at the Esso Fawley Refinery and can add that tintowellfan and Stoofa are both correct

As for Driving Instructor knowing something ? He's not paying for the fuel and even if they were most DIs I see, I wouldn't even let teach someone to ride a push bike!

BTW the supermarkets buy fuel on the 'Spot Market' hence why they can respond to price changes quicker than the big boys.

I've filled up my car from new with nothing but Tesco diesel. 97,000 miles later, not a single problem. This "poor fuel" nonsense is as bad as UFO sightings. It makes no sense but people believe it!

Tis true.

I could also save laundry costs by not wearing any socks or undercrackers. Doesn't mean it will be a pleasant experience though.
I won't use supermarket fuel in either of my cars. Tesco are better then Sainsbury or Asda. I used Sainsbury for a few tanks and my Diesel was noisier . The last time I used supermarket petrol my O2 sensor failed. So for my petrol car I use BP ultimate. Personal preference.

So your O2 sensor failed and your in depth research has identified that O2 sensors only fail when supermarket fuel is used!!!! People like you really do deserve to be taken for a ride by the fuel suppliers propaganda about their snake oil additives. Sorry to be so blunt, but you had it coming, really. Had to seriously edit this post to allow it be posted by the forum mods.

Ermm maybe you should Google Tesco o2 sensor failure. Happened in 2007, Tesco admitted liability and paid for repair bills on cars affected after alot of fighting and waiting 4 months to be reimbursed. So from that point I have refused to use supermarket fuel.

I don't use shell. So no need to Google it. My point was I had a bad experience with a particular retailer, regardless of how many years ago. I'm pretty sure the majority would avoid a particular brand after a experience like that. Stop being a keyboard warrior with your personal insults. You are making yourself look stupid
I've had 2 dozen cars, petrol and diesel, used supermarket and big name fuel and there's no difference. At least 2 of my cars have done 150,000+ miles, 99% of which was supermarket fuel, I had an import which needed Super so used BP or Esso (?) because it needed higher octane fuel.

The Tesco fuel issue in 2007 was not Tescos fault, it was the fault of their suppliers. Tescos, plus ASDA and Morrison's, just happened to be the ones who got the faulty fuel, and they paid up damages pretty much voluntarily.
