Filled my tank with 40 lites of V-Pover Unleaded at Harlow on Monday. Pump showed £1.429 / litre but just noticed till receipt says 'Regular Diesel @ £1.369'.
Was looking to see what mpg closed loop ECU, Everest Chip and big bore Piper is doing... 25.3 mpg. Better stick to Pump 5 for the "cheap diesel" :D
