Fuel makes a big difference to my T31, we holiday on the Isle of Mull for an extended period and the fuel there makes it sound like a tractor, one fill back on the mainland from near empty soon puts it right. Oddly on Mull the fuel is Glener which is associated with Shell but obviously without the additives. I only use premium fuel when towing but never use supermarket fuels. Its all in the additives.

I try to only put Shell VPower in mine. It really does make that much of difference and I do find a improvement on MPG. I once was forced to put Texco Diesel in. I wish I hadn't because I got so much more injector rattle form it!
