What brand of fuel do you use?

Postby rwb » Fri Aug 20, 2010 11:00 pm

What brand of fuel do you use?
Do you always use the same brand? If so then which brand?
Or are you not loyal to any particular brand?

I use Tifon boggo diesel because it's meant to be marginally less sh*t than INA, which I used to use because it was a) cheaper, and b) there's an INA gas station half-way between my house and my wife's. I stopped using it when my injectors started to sound like a skeleton having a wank.

Completely unhelpful I know, but you did ask... :cheesy:

I use "Wasbruk On" (Diesel) basically because the girl who serves in there speaks english and has the perkiest breasts i have ever seen :shock:
I was using Orlon when i first got here but since discovering the perky one and the fact that its marginally cheaper at around 4.10 zloty a litre (82p ish) a good 30 Groszy cheaper than all the other local fuel stations, Wasbruk now gets my Business, the fuel may be cr@p but I dont think so as im still getting around 5.1 litres per 100km, and she (The Perky One) makes me smile in places you cant see.

I use Tesco :oops:, but in my defense our clubcard points pay for all our theme park visits every year. I have a mate who's just payed for a 7 night cruise with P&O using clubcard points, I'd hate to see their shopping bill!! :shock:

I religiously use BP Ultimate on my V6 in this country. When I go abroad I tend to put Shell V-Power or V-Power Racing (100RON :shock:) in...
<steve_earwig> I think this forum is more about keeping our cars going with minimal outlay than giving our cars more reason to go bang

I use tesco for the same reason as Dai for the clubcard points, has anyone else noticed they seem to keep their prices high when they do the 5p a litre saving deals ???????

I just get diesel from any independant seller ie bp, texaco or the supermarkets. Here in Northern Ireland bad diesel is everwhere as theres a lot of it smuggled, or washed from red diesel so fuel pumps go here in cars quite a lot, and its the big filling stations where you can only be sure. With a petrol though anywhere did the job i didnt mind, usually the next closest station because i only filled up with about £10 at a time.

I've been using Tesco for ages now, but make sure I chuck some injector cleaner through every 3 months. Mainly use it for the Clubcard points as I have the credit card aswell which not only gives me the points for every £1 at Tesco, but also get a point for every £4 I spend on the card. Had it since Feb now & it does add up (probably how Dai's friend got the cruise). I'm uber sensible with it too. Have a separate bank account which is purely for credit card bill payment. If I go & spend say £78 somewhere, when I get home I transfer £80 (always round it up) from my normal account to the other account & every month when the credit card bill comes, it gets paid straight away from that so I don't get charged any interest. How sad am I eh?
