Is there any difference between supermarket fuel and others. I would be interested to know.

Any tanker drivers on the forum by any chance?
In my area of scotland sainsburys and the other supermarkets excluding asda are supplied by BP lorries, sometimes in disguise from grangemouth i would presume. I think the like of shell etc have more chemicals added when the fuel is put into the lorries though
