Just my 2pworth as a new owner and forumite. My first couple of tankfuls were on Sainsbury's own and it ran fine with seemingly decent economy (between 40-48mpg in mixed use). My next fillup was BP Ultimate which ran noticeably smoother but didn't seem to offer any economy benefits. The next tankful was Shell Fuel Save which ran rough and dropped the economy by around 3mpg over the earlier fuels over equivalent runs. The most recent tankful was V-Power which has got me the best mpg of all and is running around 6mpg better than the fuel save or 3mpg better than Ultimate. Read into that what you will! The car runs smoothest and best on V-Power and BP Ultimate and I need to figure out whether the price difference to V-Power is worth it but first impressions suggest it is.
