If I ran it on the cheap supermarket stuff, I'd probably be getting lower MPG's than my old IDE

Hi

some info for you all fuel has to be at a certain standard it is a load of ******** that supermarket fuel is sh*t .
Allot of the supermarkets buy from the likes of shell and esso it is an utter con . It like milk comes from cows .

I have established time and time again, with both petrol and diesel engined cars I have owned over the years, that I get better fuel economy from non supermarket fuel. I am not sure what makes the difference, it must be any additives.
I had a 1.6 1993 Mondeo a few years ago, if I filled to the brim on supermarket fuel I would achieve around 300-350 miles to as near to empty as I dared. If i filled with non supermarket fuel I would get 400-450 miles. I checked this many times, especially when people questioned when I told them, so I know this to be accurate. My 1.9dci Laguna without doubt goes further on non supermarket fuel.

I'll add my 2p...

I usually put supermarket petrol in my car (Sainsburys). I've not noticed the slightest difference between their regular and premium fuels.

A month ago I filled up at a Total garage. I'm nearly running out of petrol on that tank and I've got about 2mpg more than supermarket fuel (33.8mpg for a regular city run that's pretty bad with traffic lights). I don't know if its cos the weather is a bit warmer or it's the fuel...

This thread regarding mpg for the DIESEL MPG of the DCI engine seems to be overun with petrol consumption , not diesel.

For what its worth I nearly always use Shell or Esso diesel, with Esso having the slight edge over Shell. I have used supermarket fuel sometimes and one Tankful of Asda fuel and the car ran cr*p - poor mpg, noisier and not as "pokey".
Also our local Shell and Esso garages are very competively priced and are either the same price as supermarkets and more often than not cheaper.

We average approx 47mpg in the winter, rising to near 50mpg in the summer - traffic queues permitting .
