Petrol is petrol is petrol, or is it?

Hi (again!)

For the first time in years, I'll have to put petrol, into a car!! (having had diesel engines for quite a while previously)

I've heard various scare stories about people being disuaded from filling up at Supermarkets (where it's obviously cheaper most of the time) as the quality of petrol isn't as good as 'traditional' filling stations.

Have others found any proof of this, or should I pay that few pence more, for petrol at places like Esso, BP etc?

And lastly, I've seen things like Shell Optimax, and a BP equivelant of this, but I've only got a little 1.2 clio, not some big powerful beastie to drive round in - would paying a little more make much difference to me?
