1.9dci MPG

I've noticed recently that my MPG changes considerably depending upon where I fill up. On a good run run (Milton Keynes to Plymouth) i've had an average of 53mpg at a steady 75mph. Just for normal use (work and back, being a taxi for the kids etc) it returns around 43mpg, but only if I pay the couple of pence extra per litre and fill up at a Shell station. As soon as I try to save that couple of pence per litre by filling up at Tescos, my fuel consumption drops to around the 32mpg mark. I've tried this over the last 6 months, fill up at Shell 43mpg, fill up at Tescos 32mpg. Anyone else noticed this? Or is it just me?
