V-Power advice pls!!

Im on fumes on the said fuel, Pboro has been dry of V-Power for the last 4 days or so due to the panic buying. Tesco Momentum or any other suggestions? would look to put enough in to tide me over before converting back to V-Power.
Cheers - Ben

I feel ur pain, both shell stations where I live have no v-power, ive end up with torq super, previously known as jet and the last time I used jet super the car lost power. Tesco Momentum is spot on, so is texaco super.

I've used Texaco super twice with no problems, if Texaco is crap then dont bother with Jet Super, lol, I only use V-Power. God knows what Im going to put in it today. Going for some quotes for a respray (colour change).

I had a classic years ago and got got caught short fuel wise in the sticks, all that was open was a Texaco garage, put the best in they did and it ran like a bag of poo on boost,
Topped up with 99 the next day and did a ecu reset and all was fine.

Same as that, prefer V-Power but Momentum is just as good.
