Ive used Vpower / Excellium etc before and noticed no performace or MPG difference whatsoever either.

I used to use Vpower when it was cheap enough for its "claimed" cleaning characteristics, but now petrol is so much more expensive I dont bother.

I now either fill up at Tesco or use the regular unleaded from Total or Shell.

I do however put a bottle of fuel system / injector cleaner in at around about every 3000 miles coz Ive got an IDE engine and Im paranoid about the injectors getting clogged up. But I get that cheap from a warehouse / cash & carry place....
