    i only use Vpower diesel in the bora, to me it just feels smoother more responsive then normal derv, less smoke when booting and a slight increase in mpg but the cost per L. makes a nice hole in your pocket.

    I have used vpower and don't notice any power increase.
    I normally achieve a few more miles per tank and almost justifys the extra cost.

    I will use it when my tank is low when I'm close to shell.

    Used V-Power in the MINI and it made a difference.... but after trying a tank of it in the diesel I'll not bother again due to giving me nothing much more than a lighter pocket...
