Fellow Oil Burners.......please can you tell me what make of diesel you guys find gives the MAXIMUM perfomance and Fuel Economy??? Is there one brand of diesel that REALLY stands head and shoulders above the rest??
Just filled up at normal texaco garage for while, then had cause to try Shell diesel extra - never went back, the change with Shell was amazing. Never tried anything else since in the last 6 months or so.
Sling a bit of millers diesel plus in now and again usually in a full tank prior to a long journey and hoofing it a bit to keep it clean. Some folk may disagree with the millers plus with a PD engine, but I have had no probs.

Ultimate for me was good powerwise but expensive.
I now fill up with Shell extra which for me is has the perfect combination of noise/power and price.
I always use my local garage which is Shell. For one reason and one reason only....it's the cheapest garage I know. When everyone else is selling at 85ish pence a litre mine is still at 81pence. Which when you spend ?35-?40 a day on fuel makes a difference at the end of the week.
Oh, yeah and it seems to work ok. The only fuel I won't use is supermarket derv, which IMO is inferior quality.
