Never know why people use BP when Tesco round the corner is always cheaper.

If you think Tesco petrol is different to BP?
Different additives maybe, but petrol is petrol (the refinery doesn't produce a lower grade for Tescos)...
Do you really think if Tesco's petrol was in anyway bad for your car versus the millions of motorists that use it every week (for decades), we wouldn't of heard about it?

Nothing wrong Tesco fuel. Tesco super unleaded is 99 octane which is ideal for my classic car. No one sells it.

Quentin , Is it receding as fast as your valve seats on unleaded.? Or have you had hardened ones fitted.

@@Bob - how certain are you that Tesco get their fuel from the same supplier every delivery?

All petrol, whether that's sold in Tesco, Esso, BP, Asda etc etc comes from the same refinery. It is then down to the individual companies what additives they put in.

I also use Castrol Lead Replacement Additive with Octane Booster and an in line FuelCat. I have not checked the valves, but 20000 miles and no problems at all since leaded petrol vanished.

The very reason for buying the product- to travel- means that you can shop around. The best prices are in the Eastbourne area, or Sainsburys' in Newhaven. The fuel is the same- it comes from the "local" refinery- probably in the Southampton area for us.
For Quentin: you can still buy leaded 4 star: as the Govt. has allowed that up to half % of it can still be produced to cater for classic cars. However, the nearest filling stations are at West Hoathly or Goudhurst.

Tesco is by far cheaper, I use their clubcard which gives air miles every time you fill up. I fill up a tank of petrol every month in my Ford Focus, at the end of each year I have enough air miles for a flight to Madrid and back. So not only do so save money but Also get the bonus if a free flight as well. For that reason I use Tesco, the petrol is exactly the same but the benefits are greater.

Thank you Sussex Jim. According to a list I've seen online Clayhill fuels do leaded, as does a place in Horam. I might look into that.
