    It should make a fair bit of difference dude. But you need a good few tanks through the system to see any potential difference. Also, you'll be better off resetting your ecu (just pull the fuse out for a bit) as it'll re-adjust itself to the new fuel.

    I used it on the continent, and the engine was noticeably quieter and a little more willing.

    I didn't realise you could get it in the uk?

    Cool. I'd used BP ultimate a few times, but it was around 10p a litre more than normal diesel at other stations, so wasn't worth the cost. Hopefully v-power will be sensibly priced.

    Normal diesel is 94.9 p/l, and the V-power stuff is 101.9 p/l at my local shell, take your pick.
