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...
