When a change of jobs and then retirement reduced my miles p.a. I found my TDi suffered so I've switched to Esso Supreme with its inbuilt cleaning agent. Can't say the mpg has improved but the A2 runs better. Yes, it is expensive but then I only fill up with 30L once a month.

Many years ago I did a road trip to Sweden and found that the only diesel in some garages was the stuff for lorries but the A2 was fine zooming along the autobahns and gave a good 62mpg throughout the 4,000 mile trip with a mix of fuel types.

The best I've ever had and without trying is 68mpg (full tank bleep to bleep) a few times but that was before the remap and 5th gear change. More recently got 66mpg covering 2 trips to Devon (100/150 each way). Again without trying to get high mpg. 78.8 seems a pipe dream and like another poster, I don't think I would have the patience ;)

Not all supermarket fuel is rubbish although generally the 95 Ron stuff is. Tesco Momentum is best at 99 Ron and much cheaper than V-Power which is also a great fuel but which i won't use anymore because it's 1 ron octane less and too expensive for less performance.
Interesting as I’ve always gone out of my way and I do mean out of my way to fill up with v power petrol not diesel in the Porsche and bike ..and never used supermarket so you have surprised me with this one ..I had heard stories of bad fuel ...frightened the life out of me I would rather have paid the extra but you have given me food for thought ..or was this just for diesel and not petrol ..

In the interest of accuracy I feel I should point out you are referring to a post from last November. Like Mark(@Vorsprung durch Technik) I too thought the comment about '1 RON octane less' was true, and maybe was at the time, but things have changed. Look at my later post.

I still rate the 98 ron V-power it's just that i can feel the extra 1 Ron of Momentum and for that reason i seek it out. Reading the above quote form the old thread from Andrew, it seams i missed his mentioning V-power is now 99 ron. Interesting i might give it a go and see if it feels as good as the Tesco Momentum. If they now feel the same ultimately i'd still prefer Momentum as it's quite a lot cheaper.

Thank you I will give the momentum a try it’s funny how we stick with one we like and are reluctant to try another ..?
