I use Shell V-Power petrol, seems she only likes this sort of drink! anything else and me car runs a bit rough, i average 25mpg going to work everyday on a mixed urban cycle, which is slightly better than what the book says.
i only swear by this fuel as its known to have a high octane rating in some regions, 99RON and above which has been recorded, but as the fuel has cleaning additives, it keeps the fuel injectors and valves cleaner than other fuels.

..and V-power is almost without sulphur ! diesel V-power is made with the GTL (gas to liquid)
process and as pure as is possible.
p.s. I worked for Shell for 33 years so I am a little prejudiced...but my 156 and 911 run best
with V-power

There was a few images on shell website, two engines that had covered 100,000 miles on two fuels, one on supermarket fuel and the other V-Power, the images showed the condition of the inlet and exhaust valves, the supermarket fuel'd engine was dirty as a chimney and the V-Power engine was like new! although this was a few years ago they were showing the comparison on their website

I started filling up every 3rd fill with a tank full of v and the mpg on the trip computer has gone up from 40.4mpg to 44.9mpg, dont know if its down to this but dont think it can be doing any harm.

Mine seems to prefer V-Power over anything else. I haven't noticed any MPG improvements though. :)
