I would have to agree with that - I have found supermarket fuel to be poorer than the leading fuel companies. I would be weary of adding anything to the fuel - long term could spell valve problems - fuel companies go to a lot of research to optimise their product. Depending on your engine and the type of journeys you do; experimenting by filling up with 'super' (optimax) unleaded might help. But of course the extra cost defeats the purpose! The simple things as mentioned are probably the most help - also correct tyre pressures make a significant difference.
