Will my Mercedes-Benz 220D benefit from Shell V-Power diesel?

I have been trying to decide whether my C-reg Mercedes-Benz 220D, extremely well looked after by a Mercedes specialist family in West Hampstead, would benefit from using Shell V-power diesel. Cost would rocket, but would it be worth it?

I can tell you that after using Shell V-Power Nitro+ in my Mazda my fuel economy improved by 9 per cent for an extra outlay of 5.7 per cent, so it makes sense on running costs as well as long term costs.
