    I change around the 2000rpm mark.............but I have the Ecoflex and it pops up a reminder to change gear in the driver display at around 2000. Of course when I hit the sport button that goes out the window when I want to do some spirited driving

    DaveN, on Apr 6 2012, 03:14 PM, said:As promised I have carried out a prolonged test using Shell V Power compared with ASDA ordinary diesel with the following results.



    Insignia 2.0 CDTI (160) ST 4x4 Auto MY2012



    Shell V Power Mileage covered 1082.2 litres used 121.83 mpg 40.38

    Adsa Mileage covered 2952 litres used 348.78 mpg 38.48



    Cost of Shell was 159.9 against 144.7 for ADSA (I only have one garage within 20 miles that sells Shell V Power)



    Route was some 80% motorway and 20% urban roads in similar weather conditions.



    Therefore the results in my case, the fuel consumption improved by 4.9% but??the fuel cost was increased by 10.5%.



    So despite other comments, in my case, it is not cost effective for me to use Shell V Power. (I cannot comment on any cost considerations relating to engine wear as this is a new engine)


    That's one helluva difference in price, the V stuff is usually only 6-7p a litre more expensive up here
