People actually put that tesco crap in a 911?!

It's basically their standard 95 ron fuel with a dose of extra bioethanol. It has none of the cleaners and additives that V Power has, and the shell stuff gets its octane rating from the actual base fuel mixture.

Yep - loads of people.
Performs well - as many tuners agree.
Never had issues with the fuel and it's all I've personally ever used aside from using vpower on literally 2/3 occasions.
It's run various high power cars for me without any issues and always makes great power...
It maybe a different story if it wasn't 10miles to my
Nearest shell...

Loads of discussions around this.

Shell pimps do not operate in my area so I'm forced to use Tesco, but I've never had any issues with it in 5 years.

They are the only two that do 99 RON super. Everything else is 97, and given that the minimum that Porsche specify is 98... Dont know
