    Optimax is still the best performance wise from the tests I've seen but likely more expensive.

    i'm aware of the relative differance in RON, addatives and related performance. Just wanna see how much it costs compared to Optimax and regular petrol! :D

    If 99ron tesco fuel is the same price as, say, 95ron BP fuel then i might give it a go - if it's the same price as Optimax then i won't bother!

    Round here Optimax is 92.9p and Tesco 99ron is 89.9p. Personally I don't notice any difference between Optimax and Tesco 99ron. In fact if anything the car seems to prefer Tescos.

    About 86 I think. Trust me though, Tesco 99 is much better than standard. The car will run great on it. I have tried Tesco 99, Optimax and Esso Supreme and Sainburys Super in my car and I think Tescos 99 is the best with Optimax a close second.

    I saw a big drop in MPG when using 99 Ron. For me, it wasn't worth the 2p saving over Optimax (although the extra Clubcard points always come in handy:lol: )

    I haven't noticed that, in fact its more like the opersite. I seem to be getting more miles to the tank.

    Have to say Performance is better with 99ron tesco super, I get mine from sevenoaks which has a shell station also.

    Also and quite strangely I get about 20 miles more from a full tank with tesco 99!!

    Q. Do Tesco get their 99RON petrol in from one particular refinery?

    I tend to find that supermarket petrol is usually supplied from the nearest refinery, thet belongs to one of the large oil companies. Around where I live, it is Esso that supply both Waitrose and Tesco. If this is the case, wouldn't the super stuff I get be the same as that on an Esso forecourt?

    I think they get it from a German company. They will get it from which ever fuel deport is nearest, but doesn't each company store its own fuel in the deport. The fuel deport though is probably owned by someone like Shell or BP

    I was told by someone, who knows a petrol tanker driver that the same type of fuel that goes their own forecourts as well as that of the supermarkets they supply. In some instances - allegedly - the petrol is supplied without additives.

    I was just wondering if this was the case for the Tesco RON.
