    Ideally quality of normal Petrol/Diesel should be same across all brands you name it.
    The difference should be with the Premium Fuels(Speed/Power).
    But yes that is if we are in a ideal world but each Fuel Pump owner has his own recipe of Petrol/Diesel and it is we who has to choose between the better out of the worst. :dead:
    I would visit Shell pump just hoping they haven't played around with the original ingredient and for the Service also we like to hear "Namastay" once a wile don't we :angelic:

    I agree that the engine noise is better but there is definite drop in FE. I have done 3 tank fulls at shell and can vouch that the mileage is lesser by more than 1kmpl.

    I have been using shell diesel on and off for a few years now. Engine noise is lowered and a slight increase in the engine response.

    Check the colour of the diesel and avoid the pump if blue.

    Yes @whitepunto76 there will be around 1-2 kms drop in kmpl compared to ioc or bp.... but with less engine noise and u can feel the smoothness compared to other fuels.....

    Just want to check with all GURUs out there... Is this bcoz shell comes with some additives?

    For the first time, I filled my tank with Shell diesel. The engine feels more responsive, but yes at the cost of FE which has dropped by 1-2 kms/ltr. But I am loving the engine response and its sporty sound. Does the normal shell diesel also has additives?? I am thinking of sticking to shell for sometime, but if it does have additives, then I would like to go back to normal diesel, as its written in the manual that MJD needs only normal diesel.
