Very well said and I generally agree, for me just my choice and 5p a litre more isn't a lot really,don't overly do many miles and occasionally put in a bottle redex when it's on offer lol
The best extra additive I've found and is well respected in the motoring industry is miller's.

Try a bottle of miller's power eco. A bottle does 10 tanks. And you will notice the difference nigh on immediately once it's made its way thru the fuel system.

It bloody stinks tho so don't get it on your hands and bag the bottle.

Actually they don't, Shell V Power fuels comes from a separate refinery.

This is a contentious issue where there are as many pro as against. Ultimately it's your money and you're at liberty to spend it how you wish

so you think shell sends tankers from that refinery 100s and 100s of miles to a service station near you????  believe what you want.....I have filled the tankers.......

You may have filled the tankers but there is only one refinery that produces high octane fuel and that is Stanlow by all accounts.

I personally use the higher octane fuels, normally BP as it’s the closest to me as well as collecting nectar points (the wife)....I’ve found it smoother on acceleration and slightly better on mpg, I use the same in my bike, the wife hybrid gets the standard fuel and the daily gets supermarket (better) fuel as cost is the same as standard big brands 95 cost.....I will look into the millers addative as everything helps......can’t say I know the science behind any of it......just a personal preference 🤷🏼‍♂️

Personally I notice no difference in the drive of the car and the MPG is pretty much identical with premium fuels, I don't believe the ECU is these cars adapts to the fuel like in some?

I do put tesco momentum in though for the cleaning additives and since I do so little mileage the cost difference is negligible, if I did more miles I am not sure I would.
