Re: Branded or Supermarket?

I think the overall concensus is that branded 'superfuels' give better mpg, but not enough to justify the additional cost.

Now for standard fuels, I think people buy according to convenience/price & whatever loyalty scheme is operating - I can't say I've noticed a difference.

But then again, since it all comes from the same hole in the ground & refined in the same plant - I wouldn't expect to see a change.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
