Thought I'd try using ron 98 fuel for half a dozen tankfuls, here are my conclusions

1, very slightly smoother acceleration.
2, no difference in speed/power
3, considerably more expensive
4 DROP in mpg of around 4-5mpg averaged out over 1500 miles

therefore its a no brainer...sticking to ron95 fuel and saving money

remember, your mileage may vary ;-)



not scientific but enough to convince me.

Has the expensive version got any additives in it? I heard that the occasional tankful can help wear and tear on the engine. That could be rubbish of course!

apparantly additives are similar, I'd avoid scabby cheapo fuel but generally decent brand 95 ron stuff should be used.....round here they are always price-warring and last 95ron I got was BP at 1.25 /litre (98 ron is about 10p a litre or 45p/gallon dearer

Thankyou for doing this research! I'll stick to 95 but what about supermarket fuels? I've heard Morrisons use 92? Although the other supermarkets are fine, is this right or should I stick to branded fuel?
