Default Quality of Diesel

Has anyone noticed if using a better quality diesel has helped the engine(2.0 ltr hdi 136) stay cleaner.
Have been using supermarket cheapo stuff up to now and decided to try some shell v power. Can't say the car behaves any different on it but its early days yet.

Hoping to check on pp2000 over a period of time to see how the dpf filter and regen process are any different.

Any thoughts anyone.

Purely anecdotal but I always found I got less miles per tank and a more sluggish drive on supermarket fuel, compared to Shell.

I'm not sure on less per tank, but Sainsbury's diesel made my 407 x-line clatter more than other diesels.

Thanks guys.

Jumping from 113/ltr (sainsbury) to 127/ltr (shell v) only really means about 10 per tank extra but i reckon it must be better for the engine and systems

Sainsbury city diesel has a high bio content which is why you get lower mpg. Try normal shell and you will get nearly same mpg as v power. I also only use branded fuels and never had fuel system issues old 307 had 287k miles on original pump and injectors

A while ago my then boss insisted I use Shell Vmax in the van I was driving. he came up with paperwork after a couple of months to show how the mileage had improved. But I was still just filling up with whichever supermarket was selling the cheapest diesel.
My wife's 307 has getting on for a 1/4 million miles behind it still running like new on a diet of Tesco's regular diesel.
Really it would need a long (and expensive) blind controlled conditions test to make any kind of informed conclusion.

It's all the same stuff - it comes out the same local refinery - the tanker driver squirts in a different additive package according to the 'brand'.

If you want shell v power - fill up with normal diesel and throw some of you're own bottled additive in.

There's no more power or greater mpg - the additives are simply cleaning out your engine - and restoring 'normal' performance - once you have normal performance go back to supermarket fuel until you need to put in more additive.

Throw into the mix that engines are designed to work on a certain grade of fuel - so putting in wizbang extra pro fuel may be a waste of cash - as the engine cannot take advantage of the extra wizbang properties

I've been using Morrison's own for years.

It's the same with engine oils - there are only so many refineries - as long as it meets spec - use it - don't be suckered into the 'label' game.

Thanks guys for all the responses.
I will say it feels more responsive on the better quality fuel compared to my normal cheapo stuff. Time will i suppose if its just the car behaving as it should on branded fuel and the cheaper stuff makes it sluggish which is livable.

Either way a tank every few fill ups of the good stuff can't do no harm and if it cleans the internals up a bit then i'm ok with that
