But as codprawn would say - Quicksilver don't own their own oil wells or refineries either - so it also all comes out the same process (which like the forecourt fuel, may or may not, have a slightly different blend of additives).

Standard unleaded/Super unleaded even comes from the same tanks-unless you're buying something like V-power ,Excellium or BP ultimate.
