Diesel (fuel)

This has kind of been touched on before with the merits, or otherwise, of BP Ultimate.

My question is this: Is there really any difference/benefits with the various brands and grades of diesel, from cheap supermarket stuff to the likes of BP, Shell, and things like 'city diesel' etc?

I'm asking as I'm just getting my first diesel, a 156 JTD 20v :-), and am interested in other owners' findings.

Thank you all in advance.

Never had a diesel, but from discussions on other forums that I've read, it's down to the additives/detergents rather than the fuel...
