There are some threads on here about leaded and super leaded, some say the get more MPG from the super than the normal so at the moment I am trying the Super for a few months just to see if there is any difference, not seen any yet though.

There is a myth that higher octane fuel burns better than low but it is the other way round.

hi there as already been stated the only thing that you will notice by using higher octane fuel is the loss of cash from your wallet, the sofisticated engine management system keeps your performance levels adjusted to the best that can be achieved! dont waist your hard earned cash my freind

Hi, I've been keeping a careful eye on my fuel consumption since I started the long commute from the west to east coast of Scotland everyday.

I'm using diesel, but it seems that there may be a difference between the suppliers.

have a look at the spreadsheet I'm keeping updated.

Google Docs.
