My local Shell garage has already started selling V Power (well.. the Optimax pumps are now stickered up as V Power... Probably still full of Optimax I bet!! )

I used Optimax in my Pug 106 after having it chipped and it definately preferred it to normal unleaded, giving a much smoother pick up and better acceleration. Whereas, using Optimax in my Civic Type R made no difference at all!! Tested it a few times by running almost empty and filling up with either normal or Optimax, then after 3 tanks, went back to the other unleaded to compare.

Ended up sticking to normal unleaded as it made no difference and was a lot cheaper, especially when filling up twice a week sometimes

Currently in matt_dci's garage:
2008 Citroen Grand Picasso 1.6 VTR+ & 2009 '09' Merc Vito 109 CDi
