I think the v power petrol has a friction modifier in it, this is supposed to reduce friction between the cylinder and piston rings.
so i guess thats why it performs a bit better than premium

not sure if it works out cheaper tho Interested in trackdays??
Currently in martyboi's garage:
2.0 16v corsa redtop (project redNos) 0-60 in 5.2sec (soon to be turbo'd) and the renNOS has gone to the big scrapyard in the sky :crying: and theres not an AX!
