    Better to stay out from additive laden diesel.it might affect the exhaust system primarily the catalytic converter on prolong use

    If engine is more responsive and noise free(sounding refined) that should mean less wear and tear. Blue tinge in diesel is from kerosene, diesel is supposed to be neutral without blue/ yellow tinge. Most of the pumps here in Pune dispense blue diesel and hence I stick to shell (non-blue) even if i get 1 kmpl lesser.

    I just checked with FIAT support team and shell suppot team via email. Fiat said to contact service engineer. Shell said that any fuel in india whether it is fiat or not fiat, comes with additives. This is the only factor which makes each fuel separate. They give this link to see - http://www.stp.com/products/fuel-additives I believe it should be fine with MJD. Any thoughts?

    I started filling up at Shell since 2 years and have not seen mileage drop as yet... As mentioned in my previous post, I did feel the engine smoother (maybe because I moved from BP to Shell) and eagerness.
    Since Shell is the norm for me, I am used to it. I still get around 18 in city and ~21 in highways. Nowadays, I never bother to look at the price difference. Its always Shell for me

    I used to fill up at HP bunks religiously before. In TN the quality of diesel is not upto the mark and felt that pickup is not that great. I then tried shell and pickup is really good. Now I am filling only from shell / COCO. Rather than fearing additives and fill adulterated diesel its better to opt for shell and enjoy driving!

    Quite surprising as I always see mileage drop by 1-1.5 kmpl with shell. Maybe I should try some other shell pump in Pune.

    Even I see a drop of 1-1.5 km/ltr with Shell. I normally fill from the following pumps in Pune:

    1) Shell Wakad (Pune-Mumbai Highway)
    2) HP Kalyani Nagar
    3) Shell Mundhwa
    4) HP Shivaji Nagar (University Road)

    So HP gives slightly more FE but Shell makes it more fun to drive :p.
