I only use Shell petrol if I can help it, won't touch supermarket stuff as it's not as good quality. Although most of the big companies supply the supermarkets, they don't go through the same level of processing. as I understand it, to get on a Shell forecort the petrol goes through 5 levels of checks/processes, the petrol that goes to supermarkets only goes through about 2, so it's not the same quality.
Plus Shell always seems the cheapest near me, at least on par with supermarket, so no real benefit of going these.
I'm not sure where the logic comes in for putting in litres rather than cash? Surely if you 'save' a few quid the first time by putting in 20l rather than £20, then it just means this is added into the next purchase, as you've got less petrol so it'll run out sooner.
