Always use Optimax, bit of a pain trying to find a Shell garage sometimes but well worth it

By Shell Ultimate I take it you mean Shell Optimax and not BP Ultimate

Shell Optimax when ever possible or Super Unleaded incl BP Ultimate if I can not get Optimax

I generally use Optimax but to be honest apart the odd time I really don't feel much difference between this stuff and Sainsbury SUL.

For me the car runs very lumpy and can be a bit hesitant on BP Ultimate. Saying that changing brands all the time doesn't help as the ECU is trying to adjust all the time. I should add that I am running a UK spec Impreza albeit with a PPP ECU
