let me know when its £2 off ffs

Shell send me a voucher in September, spend £25 and get 1000points (show in November) which I still did not get...:(

Another voucher put 21Litre and get 500points which according to them will show in next year into my account...

So I have to wait until next year, may be will forget it...that's what they wants..

Not where I live it isn't and even if it were I'd sooner pay the extra for the better fuel.

Probably cold because the prices you quoted will not appear at every shell and will just fall in line with other prices in that area

I am real about fuel, I don't need a thesis and I can only assume that by your comment you assume that all fuel is equal.

Its all the same fuel a few different additives but there not going to make any noticeable difference
Its impossible to have any realistic test on public roads as there are far to many variables ie traffic weather speed etc
that will have a significant effect on MPG .Even under test conditions the fuels are the same its only the higher Octane
fuels that can increase power when used in some high performance cars due to high cylinder pressures causing detonation
Its all in your imagination

Entitled to your own opinion of course and fair play for not resorting to the immature personal insults that the previous guy felt the urge to dish out. I feel more inclined to agree with Stu and tend to mix fuelling between supermarket and the likes of Esso in order to keep the car running decent. Asda and Morrison's fuel have certainly had some bad press...personal choice whether to go with the 95% diesel 5% vege oil mix or not I guess...

Let's give an example:

2p per litre cheaper 10 miles away than 5 miles away assuming an mpg of around 45, filling up with 30 litres:

Apparent saving of 60p.

Filling up @ 140.9 = £42.27

Travel there and back to closest pump = 1 litres @ 1.40.9 travel cost = £1.41

Filling up @ 138.9 = £41.67

Travel there and back to cheaper pump = 2 litres @ 1.38.9 travel cost = £2.78

Actual saving (based on simplified model above) = (42.27+1.41)-(41.67+2.78)= 43.68 - 44.45 = -£0.77

Fuel forecourts thrive on the false economy assumed by those incapable of or unwilling to do the maths required.


Just sign up to petrolprices.com and keep an eye on how things are doing, if is cheaper somewhere else, don't make the trip just for fuel, see if you can work it into a journey that you have to make anyway.

I'll worry about what's in my imagination and I'll choose where I want to buy my fuel.

I am fully aware of the process of additivation thank you.

Shells fuel is "fuel save" fuel. When you say different additives yes that is true but the main difference is the structure of the molecules within the fuel. Shells fuel with contain different chemical isomer within its composition. This is hence why supermarket fuel usually has an octane rating of around 93/94 whereas the fuel shell has is around 95/96. This means shells fuel will burn more efficiently in your cars engine and potentially prolong the life of your engine and can give you more mileage

I meant Shell when I said Esso earlier. Always get the two mixed up! Got one one route to / from work so use it about a third of the time. Difficult to gauge the difference fuel save makes as virtually every weeks travel differs. Seem to average 50+ MPG even with some sporty driving thrown in....Japanese make some decent diesel engines these days.

Ironically the Shell diesel leaflet says that it's not suitable for engines that have a diesel particulate filter, so I'll have to stick the the rubbish supermarket stuff in my motor then!

That's true you can't. Some will go on wasting their money regardless.

I'm comfortable with the fuel I buy and it's my concern how much I pay for it.

Rather than trying to ridicule me with comments regarding advertising why not give some consideration to those that are brainwashed into assuming all fuel & lubricants are equal.

Interesting. Do you have a web reference to support that?

One important factor for cars with DPF is to use a good fully synthetic engine lubricant with an additive package designed for use with a DPF.

I can't help it.
Having proved that the dearest fuel is no better than the cheapest I tend to pity the people who throw their money away on the urban myth of dear fuel being better.

I can only base it on what I've put in my car. Fuel economy is roughly the same with all suppliers, but how the engine runs is different. It's a diesel Alfa GT

Jet - Truly horrific. The car really struggled with it.
Shell V-Power - Much better pick up and noticeably better. Just not worth the extra
Shell - Runs well on this
Asda - Feels asthmatic
Tesco - A little more sluggish than Shell.
BP - Slightly worse than Shell

The Seat Leon FR TDi I had before it ran ok on Asda and Tesco fuel and it was easy enough to get 42mpg when caning it. The Alfa runs at around 37mpg when punished.

You clearly haven't proved all Petrol is the same though you. Supermarket fuel has lower octane and has different additives. Some cars will respond better than others to the additives, hence why people notice that their car is sluggish.

The higher octane rating will mean that your car is potentially producing slightly more power and therefore you can change gear at lower revs without the car struggling. This will help fuel economy.

Supermarket gel generally is a mix between different fuel types as well. Generally supermarkets get the cheapest petrol thy can find even if its from different refineries. If its from different refineries, it will have different additives. The only exception to this I think are Sainsbury's who get their fuel from BP. But as far as ASDA vs shell are concerned, shells fuel will be better for you engine. Plus where I live shells is exactly the same price as asda, sometes

Sometimes cheaper*

It's mentioned on this site too a1-forum.co.uk/a1f…703

Unfortunately other than driving to a Shell garage to pick up anothe leaflet, I can't see a PDF of it anywhere on Shell's own website, but I definitely read it for myself on the leaflet they hand out, so it wasn't just me spotting it on the website link.

Get your vehicle tuned with the cheaper fuel in it, diesel or petrol. When your fuel management settings are made during service/tuning, it takes the fuel in the tank into consideration.

I have a Seat Leon 1.9 tdi and only ever fill up at Asda. I get an average of 57mpg, but would love to think that someone else's fuel would give me even better economy though, at no extra cost.
