V-Power by Shell for a GT... Or not?
I've been a user of Shell V-Power (petrol and diesel) and always used it in all my cars for the last 6 years now.
Now, since I've owned my Blackline (diesel) which I purchased in Jan 2014, I've always used V-Power and travelled about 15,000 miles since buying my GT. Also, I've always had a short blast of smoke when accelerating briskly. Nothing major and normally only noticeable at night when another car's headlights are directly behind me.
However, last week, I was forced to use normal Shell Diesel and for the first time ever, I've not had any smoke on acceleration. Travelled about 400 since filling up with normal Shell diesel.
Do the JTD engines prefer normal Shell diesel over V-Power?
