    Petrol Advice

    Ive never even considered before the difference between standard petrol, and "ultimate petrol". Last night i was in the petrol station which had sold out of standard petrol and was offering "ultimate petrol", usually 12p a litre more expensive, at the same price. So naturally liking a bargain i filled up.

    what i dont understand is, what difference will it make?

    thanks to anyone in the know

    I asked the people at Honda...and they said it wont make any difference unless you own a supercar and it hasnt ever had 'normal' petrol in it, dont think my car fits into that category!

    ofcourse others may know better and then theres the ones that fill up on company expenses and therefore may as well

    What car and engine do you have?

    Although suppose you might get a few extra miles to gallon but then you pay that bit extra per gallon.

    To do with the 'octane' ratings.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octane_rating



    +1 sporty cars normally use it.

    Can't be much of a variation as cars have to run on pretty much the same specification everywhere

    1.6 focus. so basically if im lucky ill get a few extra mpg?

    Unlikely to notice any difference at all.

    Need to run it through your tank a few times. I found my car was quicker and ran smoother, but due to enjoying the extra power just made me put my foot down more. Not worth the extra cost really.
