Question difference between speed,power,xtramile,supershell and reliance petrols please?

can anyone explain the differences between these brands of petrols?

i have used almost all of them(on my EX-bike pulsar) the results are:
reliance - drains out the engine oil much faster but the pickup is great! engine is a bit smooth and the mileage is the same.
HP power - the oil drains out faster too but less early in comparision to reliance, the mileage is better by3-5kms the pickup is a bit increased the engine noise is reduced to some extent.
xtramile - havent checked on oil for this one, but the the pickup is really the best with this one for me the mileage remains almost the same.
CURRENTLY USING SUPERSHELL(IN MY UNICORN) THAT HAS RECENTLY COME TO HYDERABAD I WILL LET YOU KNOW THE RESULTS!

the highest mileage i got was when i had a mix of all these fuels in the tank each one liter!

please give out your experiences!

I REQUEST ALL TO MENTION THEIR VEHICLES ALONG WITH MODELS (BE IT CAR OT BIKE) FOR BETTER LEARNING OF THE SAME!

Xtrapremium is the right one from IOC. I have used reliance, xtra premium, IBP regular and Shell Super. 87 RON is the recommended one for my Petra 1.6. I got less FE using Reliance and HP regular (filled only once or twice). I have not seen any major difference between these oils. Even with IBP regular I have seen about 11.5 KMPL. I have not tried HP Power or BP Speed, May be I will try in future.
