Wish mine would let me know what would get rid !!I am of an age to well remember the 'Formula Shell' fiasco. Put me off any 'special' fuel supplier additives for ever. I have always used the cheapest fuel, ie. supermarket fuel, both petrol and diesel, in all my years of driving, some 40 odd years. I have lost count of the number of cars I have owned, and never once had a fuel related issue with any of them. Loads of other problems with some of them, most memorable being my Fiat years, wife threatened to leave me if I ever bought another Fiat! Actually did, but bought the exact same model in same colour and she never noticed until I confessed some months later. Haha.
Anyway, I really don't see the point in wasting money on these more expensive fuels, but each to their own. But, as my Mokka diesel is now seven years old, bought new and still has the Vauxhall lifetime warranty and plan to keep until it dies, I have started to add a combined cetane booster and injector cleaner just to see if it helps, I only do about 5,000 miles a year and thought why not try it as it is relatively inexpensive to add a few millilitres each time I add some diesel to the car.
Not sure what you mean. All fuel that leaves any given refinery is the same. 95 RON fuel is the same wherever you buy it. Yes, Shell, Esso, BP, et al. add additives, but without these additives all basic fuel is the same.Shell has most of the good stuff..........and its just a better experience
As your only doing around 2k miles a year and regularly see 80 mpg I’m sure you could stretch to some V power without damaging the wallet lol!I would like to use She'll V Power, but the current 18p a tire difference over Momentum is simply ridiculous.
I wish I knew the kind of additives that Shell use in their fuel, so that I could make a valued judgement on whether to go back to using it, but a 18p difference is huge, even for someone who does so few annual miles.
When I owned my A1, I only used V Power, and then, it was only £1.31 a litre, but it's £1.43 a litre now, compared to Momentum at £1.25.
Still their both good fuels, but 18p that's a big margin
And then the next thread after the service will be titled: "car seized due to wrong oil, VW won't cover on warranty"Even though it does not conform to VWs oil specification, i am using Mobil 1 0W40 in the Gti, in its first service next month.
Its the wrong viscosity, but its my favourite oil, ive used it for many years, with no ill effects, and its one of the best fully synthetics on the market.
