Awaiting my Q5 45TFSI (UK) and was wondering if it is fine to fill up at supermarkets as opposed to the more expensive Shell V power. Would it benefit in perhaps using v power every third or fourth fill or not really. Fuel consumption benefits?
Performance benefits?

I would say yes to your suggestion of using every now and then, as they have extra cleaning additives. But its difficult to justify with the price of fuel currently.

The Q5 is not a performance vehicle neither is it sensitive to fuel additives. If you use 95 or 99 Octane you will notice no real performance difference as even with the 45TFSI it is not a high BHP engine. Bearing in mind the price differential between 95 and 99 Octane I would stick with supermarket 95 Octane and save money. Now if you were getting an RSQ3 or RS6 then 99 Octane is mandatory.
