Ok guys, let's get a map of the U.K., and a set of darts.
Can I ask why you think this is a deal? The vpower stuff is usually 6p more than standard where I am, and as regular diesel is £1.049, there seems to be no deal here...

The extra cost is offset by the extra mpg you get from this stuff, works out cheaper believe it or not!!

Even with the extra 6p per l, that makes it £1.109 where I am (less than the stated deal price). I was asking why this is a deal, not why vpower is better value. However, to comment on your point: the dozen or so times I have used vpower and calculated the increased mileage, it has never worked out better value to use vpower.

. You've read about tests on that!

​what's wrong with that?
It was quiet amusing noting the forecourts of the likes of Shell,Bp ect yesterday,with the effects that all the supermarkets had with their pound a ltr fuels.
Empty forecourts,with a bored operative staring out of the kiosk window whilst the signs flickered 106/109.9

​If you did, then youd prob realise the lack of difference they do make. I read them, as because of the miles i drive, and at my cost, any savings i could make would be greatly welcomed. Ive compared lots of the so called super fuels (diesel only) to the standard ones, and found only minimal if any difference at all-and no way makes it better value.

I know this is right for high octane petrol but not sure of diesel.
I always used to get about 30 miles more out of tesco 99 over their normal unleaded. If you do the maths it's actually cheaper as you say.
Most just see it paying more for fuel but if you are technical and see why then you will be the one that benefits from it.
Look at the US, their fuel is 85 octane? That's like water so hardly surprising their cars are so bad on fuel.

If this was the unleaded it would be a good deal for me. My car manufacturer (Porsche) recommends the use of high octane and I have used the Shell V power variety since owning the vehicle. When I took delivery I did ask the dealership about the specific benefits of using high octane and I was informed that it is based purely on the engines compression ratio. During hard accelleration for example on a high compression ratio engine standard octane fuels can cause "knocking" which is the result of a pre ignition of the fuel air mixture, the higher octane fuels burn at a slower rate and thus results in a more controlled burn at high rpm rather than pre explosion type burn which causes the pinging or knocking problem. Beyond this aspect I understand mileage benefits and noticeable performance increase is a myth.

I use this when the engine starts to get noisy and lumpy, it does seem to help, I sit on top of a diesel engine all day so this is more empirical than placebo. One tank in three seems to be adequate, I suspect it's the additives giving the system an enema.

Well where are you getting your snake oil then?
Doesn't make a difference when you're driving poverty benefit street wagons. But my M3 runs much better with a smoother idle with the super fuels. Tesco Momentum and Vpower Nitro being the best.
