    Been running it since December in mine, and yes I can definitely feel a difference too. Feels smoother and a little bit more perkier too. I am not getting any better or worse mpg. Yes its 8p a lt more expensive but as I never let the tank get any lower than a half before filling up its only a couple of quid dearer than normal.

    Well tbh this was my thinking behind using it too. Ive used predominantly Supermarket fuel since I bought it with the odd fill up of Shell regular. Tried Tesco Momentum once but never noticed any difference.

    I use Tesco momemtum, currently getting 35mph - ish. It has been higher, 37mph, during the summer.
    It was 32mph when I got the car a year ago.
    7 miles each way commute, plus shopping and 7 motorway miles EW to visit grandchild. So a lot of short journeys.
    I rarely fill the tank and usually run it low before re-filling.
    I do think (but have no proof) that it goes better on fresh fuel, hydro-carbons in petrol evaporate. Real or not? Don't know.

    I've noticed that since using tesco's 99 the car runs better. I didn't feel any difference to normal fuel when using vpower but a difference with Tesco 99. Alot smoother on tescos and starts better.
