Interesting observation. But supermarket fuels have been around for
many years now. Wouldn't motorists regularly using Tesco fuel have
found the difference because their cars perform worse or engines break
down more often? No one can supress such information :)
Yes maybe, but I would suggest the older diesels designed with high
sulphur fuel in mind. When I bought my first diesel car I remember
that the low sulphur fuels new to the supermarkets caused a huge
problem with 'older' engines then. They don't so much now as they are
mostly new generation designed for the new fuel. But there is another
side to that story......
One laugh we had when we got the ridiculous RAV4 imported from Europe
by a dodgy transport manager - later fired - was that on the dash
there was a large printed warning that ONLY low sulphur fuel was to
be used. So we had to ask the - new to town - Volvo dealer, where
they got their low sulphur fuel from, and they recommended just one
filling station in the city. (No authorised Toy dealer in the whole
of the country you might recall). Not much good for a vehicle that
had to travel the country which was full of forecourts selling
'rough' gas oil, though my older 80 engine thrives on it.
The interesting comment from my neighbour was prompted by a remark
that his company was currently designing all the new control gear for
the Buncefield fuel depot once it was rebuilt. I thought it was not
going to be rebuilt !
