The actual cetane value is never listed anywhere but I saw a thread once where someone e-mailed head office to find an answer. I've used both and my car is a CPO and I can easily say that the premium diesel made a noticible difference for my car especially for starts from a standstill. There is significantly less turbo lag and engine noise.

The price difference up here is 5cents/l compared to regular diesel.
That was me and posted on this thread:
