Ethanol is also very corrosive and burns quickly v petrol so its not great to have it added, I like Esso Supreme with a shot of Millers.

Esso is also 2 miles away whereas the others are 15

When BP came out with their Ultimate uld it was 102 RON in 2006. Now reduced to just 97,shows the greenies have taken over at British Poo fuel.

Didn't they make 2 ultimates?

The 97ron and a higher one which was 102, garage near me used to sell the 102. Not sure if it still does.

Had an old car mapped to run on Vpower and i put £20 worth of ultimate 97 in it once, it drove horrendously at part throttle. Never tried the 102ron

Redex is cheap in Lidl at the minute, 4.99 for two diesel or petrol iirc, I might give it a try. Weird thing for Lidl to sell.

Good price that is, I just filled up last week with vpower at £1.18 and thought that was cheap, especially compared to £1.46 the previous time
