    I'm a follower of fashion so its Optimax all the way for me. but here's hoping there a knock on effect.

    Great how Asda and Tesco are battling it out to be Britains cheapest supermarket. All good for the consumer. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    No mention of diesel on the radio. Soz.

    LoL I know the term "watered down" can be used loosely to describe anything diluted. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

     
  7. I understood (probarbly from the internet!) that grit was found in nearly all supermarkets fuel. This is due to the fact that supermarkets buy cheap fuel from companies who also sell to eastern europe, but add, erm additives, to bring them up to British standards. Cut a long story short, it's cheap nasty fuel, not filtered to the extent that BP, Shell and the rest do, hence why supermarket fuel is so cheap. As I said first off, this is only hearsay, and would love this to be proved either true or false.

    I heard on the radio that the other petrol stations are not going to lower their prices! I'm not sure why but thats what they said.

    I'm paying 85.9 for optimax down my way. I would love to get it for about 79.9!

    Here's hoping!

    The information that I heard was that Asda are lowering the price and that Tesco etc were only lowering prices if there was an Asda nearby to compete with.

    Well what you need to do is find a shell near an asda - esp if you are an optimax fool like me.
    I have - its near my dads, he'll think i'm being a nice son and visiting more, while i'm getting great prices on petrol so win win win!)
    Shell have a station locator. Not sure about Asda, but shouldn't take 10mins of web-foolery to find somewhere suitable /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Optimax at 82.9 in my part of the world /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif I'm sure that's only a 2p reduction.
    Still coincided nicely with my fill-up /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    not really thinking about what sort of petrol to use in the past does using Optimax improve the driveabilty and engine wear or what?
    I just stick in tesco unsanded.

    Its actually a better filterd, cleaner burning fuel which is easier on the engine and gives you better performance on the higher revs range!

    You put it in with a full petrol tank but seperately multi valve cleaner in one tank and fuel injection cleaner when you fill up another tank. I personally just use the STP brand. Think they all more or less do the same though. If anyone else has used and knows of better brands let us know! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
