I just wanted to bring this topic up due to the fact of experience,iv always used Shell vPower 99ron in all my cars and recently was low on fuel,the station Shell was to far to drive to due to location,then I went into nearest petrol station was Tesco,they have Momentum 99ron so I filled the car up and straight away engine felt good,drive was smooth,and felt more responsive,iv also been told about Shell via work colleagues not to use shell v power,and ever since iv filled up Momentum this is going to be my future fuel intake.

Did your work colleagues say why? Any proof or just their opinion?

Shell V Power is all I have used since having this car and the power / pickup feels perfect to me?

There have been many a myth over the years of Shell V Power being no good, is not actually 99 Ron etc, most of which have been debunked (I believe, please correct me if wrong).

I would have thought if there was an issue with V Power then somebody somewhere would be screaming from the rafters and it would be everywhere.....

I’ve been using Tesco 99 for over 20 years in its various iterations and I’ve never had an issue. The only I’ve noticed difference is it’s cheaper.

My colleague also changed fuel intake was told to aswell,it made a difference for him and me
All I can say is to have a try.

I found V power made the FN2 skittish like it was on heat.
BP Ultimate solved that but now I use supermarket E5, not noticed Tesco 99 being different to Morrisons or Sainsbury 97 but all smoother than Shell.

my colleagues advise to out a squirt of WD40 in the tank with every fill up. I swear it makes car run much better.

oh no , wait, that is bollocks

just like the OP post

i work in a refinery. There is no bad "performance" fuel. This just shows the power of the internet, people talking bollocks.
