    So there's the usual supermarkets or petrol stations like Texaco, BP and Shell. Usually i got Asda as its cheap but i heard of Shell V Power which supposedly is better for your car and provides more power and mileage due to its higher octane rating.

    I've bought normal Shell petrol and i swear my car starts faster and feels smoother. I wanna try the V power stuff but its 15p more a liter than supermarket stuff so its not exactly cheap. Anybody care to chime in?

    Probably better for the engine if you drive a newish expensive car but the extra miles you will get cannot be offset against the extra 15p per litre.

    I'm going to be getting it from across the road from now on. Your petrol is a bit obvious... It's a bit petrolly. Come on, John. Let's saddle our horses and get ourselves a curly cumberland sausage from the Little-biddy chef.

    Surely an older car would benefit more as the engine would get cleaned, no?
