Which fuel?

As I'm going to be on first name terms with the pump attendants very soon I was wondering what supplier of fuel you guys use?.........i.e BP, Shell etc or the supermarkets as I've noticed that Tescos have 99 RON. Obviously bottom line is personal choice, and a balancing act of performance against engine care but thought I'd throw the question into the pit so to speak.

Oh and wifey had her first drive and the M is still in one piece

My dealer at Sytner assured me normal unleaded (95) will be fine for the car all the time. That said I've only ever put >=97 in it.

BP Ultimate for me. Do'nt really have much choice as its about all we get in Northern Ireland. Even Sainsburys have stopped selling their super unleaded over here.

Thanks Guys,

Unfortunately due to reasons mentioned in my other post, I wont be purchasing any fuel for about a week. Rest assured when she comes back she will have her fill of go-go juice.
