which fuel is best

frankly i think it depends on the car u are driving,most cars today are fuel injected and the ECU controls the engines output, i think its abit like oil additives, some swear it benefits the engine, however i think a rocket scientist would say, most modern engine oils already have all the aditives in it already, bit like high octane fuels, unless your engine is designed and tuned to benefit from it, then its probably imagination, to think it will, i note in my hand book it says u can use it, but no benefit will be noticed, certainly i have tried it, and no benefit at all.not faster, no more power, nothing, i guess a trip to a dynotune would be the only proof its better to the average car, i tried that and proved no increase in power at all.but a ferrari would like it. if u beleive its better, then buy it, but i dont think my scenic likes it.
