    I am currently using supermarket (Tesco ) diesel but plan to try the higher grade stuff once the engine has bedded in and I am getting a relatively consistent mpg figure so the comparison is valid. As i normally only fill up every 2.5 - 3 weeks might be few weeks before i put the hi grade stuff to the test.

    thanks for the advise, may well do that and try a tank of supermarket diesel a bit down the line and look fora dip in performance

    Exactly, any diesel engine worth its salt should be able to use the most commonly brought diesel. Stands to reason otherwise we'd be hearing of thousands of cars having engine problems including Audi's
