Does anyone know whether you get a better MPG using that Shell V-Power stuff? Also, is it worth the extra pence per litre? I used to use V-Power when I had my Petrol Evo as it would only run on a higher octane but didn't really see the point of using it on a Diesel car?

Cheers

I always used Optimax / V Power in my old petrol car.

Started off using Sainsburys diesel (its on my way to work) changed to V Power diesel and mpg has increased slightly and its probably my imagination but the engine does seem smoother and has more poke!

Tend to use V-Power diesel, or BP Ultimate diesel - can't say I've noticed more power or MPG, but then I'm no expert. Its mainly the cleaning aspect that I'm going for - but I won't ever really know if it was worth it I suppose.
