Using Momentum 99 Tesco. £1.21 p/p\L used about a year now with no probs
V power here is £1.35 p/p/L
that's 63p a gallon better price so half a gallon free putting 5 gallons in the tank.
use Tesco 99 in my daily 1.0L polo average 47mpg or Honda MC2 Aerodeck better range per £20 and more power over Shell 95
I do not use any supermarket 95Ron

Unicorn farts for better VTEC engagement, and if I can't get them, then Tesco 99 as it's far more convenient for my usual driving routes than the nearest Shell station

Just got an 04 facelift car. Guy said he always used to fill up using vpower. Not many shell garages near me, tesco would be great. Are there any benefits to using vpower or tesco momentum? Eg. Better fuel economy, decarbonisation mixture in fuel.

As someone who lives in Northern Ireland the best we can get over here is 97Ron Super. When I venture over to the mainland I get Shell Vpower 99Ron and I can tell you it makes a world of difference. More power between 8-9K revs and just sounds generally smoother.
