My brother in law works at the Grangemouth refinery an assures me that it's exactly the same fuel from the same storage tanks that goes into every tanker that gets loaded there (including Tesco's) regardless of what it says on the truck.
As far as I know it's the only refinery in Scotland and that's where every dealer here gets their fuel from.
Run the cars, boat, lawn tractor and strimmer on Tesco's fuel....never had a problem.
