New F Pace on its way...which diesel fuel?

Post by FP Steve B » Fri Nov 16, 2018 8:34 pm

Hi all,

Have just been told by my dealer that my 3 ltr diesel F Pace has been built & should be with the dealer next week!

What diesel do you use, normal or super? With my Discovery Sport I put in mainly Shell normal diesel fuel & 1 fill in 4 put in Super just to clean things through.....never had an issue with DPF regeneration or engine management.

Thanks. 8-)

I use the normal stuff mostly and tank of the good stuff every couple of thousand miles. Thats about every 5th fill but I am not scientific about it. DPF should regenerate at 50mph for 20 mins and that usually happens normally for me once a week or so and not been a problem.

I will 90% of the fill ups use the good stuff. Only because I can get more to the tank of about 20-30 miles

I have always filled with V-Power in my last 3 cars where available.
Yes, it costs about 5p per litre extra, but I’ve always found I get an extra 30+ miles per tank versus standard 95 Ron fuel.
That, combined with the ‘better for your engine’ and ‘better performance’ stories means it makes sense.

I’m currently driving diesel, and my last 2 have been petrol - and the same 30+ miles per tank applies!

Diesel is diesel in my view - I just buy the cheapest I can find.

I always put in the good stuff.
It’s a small price to pay for a cleaner engine.

I used to drive diesels and found an improvement on engine tone and mpg.
Now I’m back to petrol I do the same. Maybe that’s why my petrol is getting 34-38 mixed driving?

Nothing but top notch stuff goes in it.

This ties in with a trial a friend of mine did in his Disco, he was comparing cheap supermarket fuel and branded (Shell). He found 5% better economy with the branded fuel so it's no surprise that Premium diesel will give even better economy.

This is all so subjective though isn't it - to get his 5% extra economy did he drive on exactly the same route, with exactly the same traffic in identical weather conditions using exactly the same throttle / braking settings - you could go on.

I can just about understand the logic for Petrol - ultimately it has a higher RON and once the engine mgt adjusts to the better fuel I can see you'd get better economy if you use it all the time.

But for diesel I just don't buy it - it's the same fuel from the same refinery with a few detergents thrown in.

Just my 2p worth, if it makes you feel better go for it!

Despite the f-pace being mrs mik’s I get to do 90% of the full-ups :roll:

Like some others aboveI use Shell/BP normal, with every 4th or 5th tank V-Power / BP Ultimate.

Mrs Smitten and daughter also seem to have anxiety about filling up their vehicles. Fuel is a distressed purchase in marketing speak so perhaps that is why :roll:
