What brand of fuel do you use?

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?
