how would you know ? you some sort of Tanker driver ?

The supermarkets can afford to maintain their fuel deluvery systems properly and some guys, sorry person, job is on the line if it doesn't happen.

in a stand alone franchise every time the delivery system is maontained it eeks into the profits so it soesn't happen as regularly

The other great thing about supermarket fuel is that the Auto pumps in Asda and Tescoe's aren't fussy about what and how much fuel they dispense into what container

I work in the Esso Oil refinery at Fawley, near Southampton, dominating the Solent sky line and all the fuel lorries fill up from the same tanks, Shell, Esso, Tesco etc...... they have arrangements to reduce the distances they have to transport the fuel from each of their refineries to the Petrol station. Funnily enough Tesco dont have their own refinery they just buy it from other Refineries !

Thanks for the info, I filled the boat with Tesco super (99) this morning and the engine started first turn of the key. The one thing I did notice though is that after five hours of fun I still have a third of a tank of petrol left. It may be more expensive than normal unleaded but it seems to give more MPG which is what I notice when I put it in the car.

I know on Super Unleaded you get around 10% more mpg, and better performance

You need a knackered old Yam 55 Bam Bam, go like stink them engines!

According to my brother (who works at a BP fuel depot) it's the same base fuel but different additives fed in each tanker according to final destination.
