    Default BP Filling Station Locations That Sell Ultimate

    Thought this may be useful, its an Excel spreadsheet showing both unleaded and diesel Ultimate filling station locations.....

    As I cant get diesel Ultimate nearby to me I emailed BP and they sent through this....

    Also, I must say, I found this document storage site http://www.box.net and I must say I'm quite impressed with it. Can store 1Gb of info for free but the user interface is very good.

    To Be Honest Guys I Dont Think You Are Missing Anything I Have Tried Ultimate Diesel More Than Once And Didnt Find Any Noticeable Performance Or Economy Advantage Over My Local Tesco. The Only Difference Was The Larger Dent In My Wallet To The Tune Of 6p A Litre.

    I put diesel Ultimate in for the first time the other week up near the Pod, and it went a lot better IMO.
    Depends on the engine I think....

    It depends on how much filtered air is available to the engine. If there is enough air to burn with the higher cetane diesel you will definitely see an increase in performance with Ultimate diesel or Shell Diesel extra.

    If you are not seeing a performance increase you need to think about derestricting the airbox and changing your air filter. Personally, I think 6k miles is all a standard paper air filter is good for.
