We also like to keep you informed of changes to laws relating to driving and car ownership.

The blog this week is about should you be buying premium fuel for your Volvo or Toyota? Read below to see our top tips:

When you stop at the petrol station to fill up you will see the Premium Fuel pumps. Are you tempted? We often have customers ask us if they should be using that fuel. In our honest opinion unless you are driving a performance vehicle you are very likely to see little, if any improvement. What you will see is an increase in your fuel bill. If you really think it makes a difference then by all means use it or put it in every 2/3 fills. Monitor how many miles you get out of a tank but of course ensure that you are measuring like for like with regards to the journeys you are making with your Volvo or Toyota. The fuel at the pumps is designed for standard everyday vehicles like those on the roads and the ones the majority of us own. If you are in any doubt please feel free to talk to your local independent garage for further clarification. Happy Motoring Folks!
