I use it and it gives me 50mpg more and an extra 60bhp and a reduced 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds.


I use Shell VPower on the rare occasion because of its supposed engine cleaning capabilities. Not for anything else. Can't say I noticed a change in MPG, and wasn't looking for a change in perf. at all as I knew I wouldn't get anything.

I don't use it as much now as its about 1.07 a litre as opposed to the 99p it used to be back in September Regular was a treat at 92p then too Roll on more refinery blockades...We need 87p fuel again.

I was in dublin tuesday through friday and they pay 80p a litre for regular! I couldn't believe how much we were being mugged off for.
