Re: What is your favourite distillate?
The only premium diesel in our area is Vortex, so I use that.
It's similarly priced to regular diesel at the Shell/Coles nearest us, so there's no price disadvantage. We do some of our groceries at Woolies, so we get the 4c/L off too.
I have heard good stuff about BP Ultimate, but havent seen it around here yet. Also, Shell surveyed me a while ago about premium diesels so I think they're planning something with a V-Power label.
I have tried standard BP diesel a few times and I havent noticed any big differences in performance or mileage but it's a relative pain in the butt compared to premium when it foams up while filling.
