    Default Performance Diesel

    Shell have v-power and BP have their own performance diesel, does anyone else do 'better than normal' diesel.

    I am curious to try it out and see if it genuinely makes a difference.

    You will not notice any difference on just one tank, it takes about 3-4 tanks of constant use to notice any difference.

    Performance diesel is not like performance petrol, with petrol the octane is higher and therefore can run more advanced.

    On diesel, the cetane rating is higher, but the main benefit is the cleaning agents with the performance fuel, these break down the build up and when this is cleaned up, the engine will benefit from the higher cetane rating.

    I have pretty much used V-Power diesel all the time and the car is a little better on fuel, not loads, but enough to cover the extra cost but the engine is quieter and runs alot smoother than before, mid range pick up is also better.
