I used to live just down the road from you Canary in Harpenden. Had to work in London that Saturday night and drove home via the A1. It had just gone up a short while before I drove past and I could see the smoke billowing in the air from the A1.

I suspect what happens there is that the wrong additive packs are put in (a diesel one into the petrol tank or vice versa). The actual base fuel is the same stuff that goes into "branded" filling stations.

Your choice JPR

To counter your reason though, I’ve filled with nothing other than Tesco, Sainsbury and Morrison at numerous nationwide outlets using a fuelgenie card, for the last 10 years and have never suffered a bad fuel problem with any of my and my wife’s cars

Morrison’s and Tesco did suffer from a bad fuel episode 10 years ago when a silicon based anti foaming additive found in diesel, was accidentally added to unleaded at Vopak. Could just as easily contaminated fuel at any outlet, it just happened to affect the two supermarkets because some numpty at Harvest Energy put the additive in the wrong tankers which delivered before the error was spotted.
Other isolated incidents, for example, recently at Harlow, are just as prevelant with mainstream outlets but they are better hidden from the press. As said above, no matter where the fuel is distributed, it’s the same stuff coming from the refinery. Only the handling at the terminal is subject to the occasional human error.
