Hopefully i can help..

If your refering to use such as premuim over regular - It certainly would depend on the cars intial use wise to see any sort of benefit as mpg/performance/reducing dpf issues can using premuim in sense increase mpg slightly/aswell as able to run the engine alot quieter aswell as reduce smoke and get a better responce from the engine - but as you'll know will be a little more expensive than your regular diesel - in my opinion there isnt really much differance really other than using a good regular diesel from the likes of Shell/BP - and adding a fuel additive every so often like millers/forte diesel additive on the odd occassion during a long run wouldnt go a miss..probably the best times you would use premium diesel along with regular would be around the winter/colder months..but theres nothing wrong with using the regular diesel..I do hope this helps
