Esso's webpage below allows you to search for filling-stations in your area. Then, by clicking on the "station details" links on the hit-list of stations, you can check what products they stock.

https://www.esso.co.uk/en-gb/find-station/

Their main Fuels page only shows unleaded and Synergy-99, whereas my local station lists unleaded and Synergy-97 . It isn't clear whether Esso has now dropped the 97-ron fuel and replaced it with exclusively 99-ron. Anyone know?

Was under the impression, 99 was replacement for the 97, maybe not rolled it out nationwide yet, sure there was a thread on here stating that a while back.

I received this message from their customer care team today :

Please be informed that all Esso branded sites will move to Esso Synergy Supreme+ 99, however at launch a limited number of sites will continue to sell Supreme 97. We expect them to move to Esso Synergy Supreme+ 99 early next year.

If you email them at customer.care@exxonmobile.com, and ask about specific petrol stations,they will tell you whether they are supplied by an Esso terminal ( therefore ethanol free), and confirm whether or not they have supreme99+ unleaded,again if you ask a specific question.
Buxton station on arrival,was however,closed for the next 4 weeks !!!
So,went to Esso EG Moorland,Stoke on Trent.

Hi all
Very interesting thread. I too was looking for my nearest Esso owned petrol station (non-third party). Buxton is not far and a nice little ride for me to fill up with some Esso 99. I checked the Esso Fuel Finder for that petrol station but it did not indicate it providing Synergy 99. Could they be upgrading the station hence it being closed ? I also asked for Esso's definition of North England and although they did reply, they just asked me for my post code, which i provided and i'm currently awaiting their response. Will keep my eye on this post for any updates and provide the same..

Hi all. Quick update on the Esso petrol station in Buxton: my mistake, it does show Supreme 99 as being available, although still no response from their phone number.

Update - I visited my local filling-station here in Blackpool yesterday, and the pump which previously dispensed Supreme-95 is now re-labelled as Supreme-99. Hurrah! But when I re-checked their website find-a-station tool, this site is is still listed as only having the 97-octane fuel.

So it looks like Esso's roll-out of 99 zero ethanol in those "missing" areas is progressing, and it's worth visiting your local garage to check if they may have it in stock earlier than suggested by their publicity and website.

Which station in Blackpool Bob? I tend to use the one on the A6 just north of Garstang.

I've been putting this stuff in my 125cc scooter after following this thread.

I'm pleased to report I saw 70mph on the speedo this weekend.

Might have had a little tailwind though laughlaugh

But in serious speak for a moment, I'm sure it's a little peppier.

Probably easier to notice the difference on something so light.

"Which station in Blackpool Bob? "

Devonshire Road, just south of the junction with Talbot Road, few hundred metres north of Farmfoods / Lidl :

Blackpool is very likely to get its "base", fuel from Stanlow,Not an Esso Terminal, therefore its 99+ supreme may well have ethanol in it?
Have you emailed Esso to check that specific station?
That is the only way to be sure.customer.care@exxonmobil.com

Is Ethanol Shield any good for eliminating ethanol related issues?

Ive got tubes of 'Ethanolmate' and 'Ethomix' gathering dust in my garage from when I had a C3 Corvette. No idea how effective they are. Here's an article I found on various products - I'm sure there are loads more. https://www.johnsmotorcyclenews.co.uk/bike-tech/et...

Nearest 99 to me appears to be on Leek Road Stoke-o-Trent about 15 miles away.

Yes, it's showing four stations in Stoke. The one I've mentioned is round the corner from Moorlands.

I've been running my Mk. 3 Octavia VRS exclusively on V-Power since I bought it five years ago. Have had no problems, but decided to give this new Esso fuel a go, to see if it made any difference.

Well stone me - it is definitely better. With regard to running, my arse dyno says improved pull through the gears, although obviously I could well also be dreaming it.

But the thing that definitely cannot lie is the consumption and range. The car is used and driven in the same manner all the time. After the first tankful, I was surprised to see 40 more miles on the trip than usual to the light coming on. Thinking it may have been a fluke, I carried on using the fuel and yep - three tank-fulls down, and the same result each time now - 40 more miles range than Shell fuel.

Happy with that!
