Yep, 99RON. The only one (other than Tesco Momentum)

In America we usually have the options of 91, 93 and 95 for the top whack fuel (and price) - Europe is certainly leading the way...

But you pay peanuts for fuel, or should I say gas

But I thought they claimed the normal fuel keeps your system clean anyway ?

It does, but this offers better performance. I notice it on it on my M5

There's no point putting this in a none performance car.

I tend to find that my car is no faster nor do I get an more MPG but the engine does run smoother. I tend to buy it for my car for a treat when I have treated her badly! X)

Turbo cars benefit the most. Some require it.

I've seen a drastic improvement in the performance of my little Fiat 500 when using V Power. I'll be treating it to a full tank on the 14th....

Absolutely not true

Ohh, love on the forecourt ♥

I use Vpower in my Type R and wouldnt use anything else.
#22
Nice one - thanks for posting - not sure why people find it necessary to state which car they have (or haven't) though !
#23
I always went for the Shell Fuel Save,
#24
Some people dont realise they can use this in a standard petrol car or a higher performance and mapped cars.

Just not a dieselcar. :p

Check your vehicle's owner's manual - if it does not recommend the use of 97 RON or greater fuel then you are unlikely to see any benefit from a premium fuel, at least in terms of power.

If it does recommend 97 then any power gains on switching to premium fuel will be due to the engine beginning to perform as it was designed: knocking will be eliminated and the ECU can stop retarding the ignition.

It's not like this petrol contains any more energy than the cheaper stuff (although it may arguably have better detergents to keep fuel lines clean).
#26
Like yarp said....if your vehicle has knock sensors fitted to the engine then the ecu will be able to advance the timming to take advantage of the higher Octane rating and thus give better performance. In fact a lower octane fuel can burn hotter and given the right engine will give more power.

What benefits will I gain in my 800cc Yugo Special edt 8)

you can pour around 5 litres all over the body and seats of the car then introduce a match. Then resulting effect will produce both a heat and light source for several hours

Does this include the Diesel V-Power?
#31
I have to use this stuff, my cars been remapped to use it. I've used it in all my other cars as its a much cleaner fuel.
I used to even use it 5-6 years ago when it was called Optimax, that stuff smely lovely on full boost in my Rs Turbo lol, it used to make my Subaru Impreza exhaust pop. All Jap imported cars HAVE to use this stuff, otherwise they'll end up in LIMP mode like my dosey friend who filled up without V-power.

So is it ONLY on the 14th? I just filled my tank last night and didn't notice it being cheaper 1.39 per litre it was.

The shell garage nearest to me is always the same price as Asda petrol, not sure what it is but Luton always has the xheapest fuel near me.
#34
I never even bother to look at ASDA fuel price, would never use supermarket fuel in my car, heard to many horror storys and my car wouldn't let me run on it anyways.
#35
If you have any of the VAG group Diesel PD engines then they love V Power Diesel. More MPG, more torque and less soot. Worth putting a tank in every now and then to keep it running smooth.
#36
Lot's of typical petrolhead willy waving going on here, Excuse me whilst I spend the rest of Sunday ripping apart the roads in my Gallardo instead of reading your dirge.. xx

I used the Asda ptetol on a civic 2 years ago and it sounded awful after a week, the o2 sensor had gone and was nearly £200 for a new one. :(

Am I missing the point here?

5p off a litre at £1.40/l is a saving of around 3.5% Whoo-hooo
In 12 gallon fill that's a saving around £2.72 Whoo-hooo

If your round trip to fill up at the discounted rate is more than 15 miles then it would have cost you more than your £2.72 saving (assuming you get 35mpg).

Good if you are passing a Shell station, but I wouldn't say this is scorching.
#39
The whole point of this fuel as mentioned earlier is to prevent knocking in engines with a higher compression ratio. The higher the RON the less likely the fuel will ignite under compression alone. There will be little or no improvement in an engine with a lower compression ratio as the lower RON fuels are designed for the lower compression anyway.

I always get my petrol from Shell but if it hadnt been posted then i would have got my petrol on a different day. A saving is good if it doesnt cost you extra to get it.

AND, i bet once you get to a Shell garage you will be confronted with loads of Valentines stuff :D
