Shell diesel v-power

Got an email from Shell saying they are launching V-Power diesel and its in some filling stations mostly down south. Anybody had good experiences of this or BP Ultimate Diesel?

Re: Shell diesel v-power

I use Esso or BP normal diesel and add Millers Diesel Power Sport 4 - and it does make a noticable difference, it makes it smoother, and I get around 50 more miles more when compared to just filling up with diesel without the additive! I used Shell Power extra, and my JTD didn't like it all, I get the best mileage from Esso or BP.

I've tried several tankfuls of V-power diesel and cannot honestly tell the difference over the normal stuff, it just costs more. If you want better performance buy a faster car.

Re: Shell diesel v-power

I always use BP Ultimate Diesel....not for any supposed power increase thougha s I have never noticed one in comparison to any other diesel!

The reason I use it is because it seems to make the car run much more smoothly at lower revs than other diesels I have tried.
