Shamlessly stolen from another forum but thought it might be of use :)

So anyone running on it have anything to report, I might try a few tanks or so when I get through my current Optimax testing :)

Good list Jase, but some of the "to follow soon" ones are actually listed in the main ?

Yup I noticed that too... it is a direct copy from the source post so I CBA to edit the list, didnt want to make it look like some paces had the 99 stuff when they might not have :)

have used a couple of tanks, seems to be slightly more responsive, but it has a tendancy to disapeer :excl:

odly it wasnt the foot on the floor to much, just more along the lines of it didnt appear to be as econmic (not sure that words fitting tho) but worth experimenting with an cheaper than optimax! :)

Cheshunt and Stevenage are missed off the list.

I've been using it for about 2 months now, can't sat any better than Optimax but the car runs good on it.

It's about 1 or 2p/l cheaper than Optimax round here and MPG is about the same

tesco 99 ron was at the pumps in prestwich, manchester for quite a few monthsfor the same price as normal unleaded but disappeared just before i moved for some reason. here in ashby there is normal and super 97 ron, wow! :blink:

Was using it during the summer for a few tank fulls.

MPG was ok but nothing out of the special.

However after an initial fill up it does make everything smoother. Especially take off - less clutch judder.

The effect seems to wear off as the ecu works out the extra RON.

5TH Gear on monday night (14/11) are supposed to do an article on premuim fuels which should be interesting.

You're not kidding. I'm just trying a tank and from the fuel gauge so far it looks like I'm getting about 14 mpg instead of 28 :o :crying:

(And yes I have reset the ECU.)

did u do the long term memory reset of the ecu

mat showed this to me

the car will then drive like $hit for a few miles until it relearns everything

think it is a case of disconnect bat6tery for half an hour

oddly enough mine worked out at 14mpg aswell, back on cheap at the mo as could only find a asda when i needed to fill up :unsure:

I did reset the ECU by pulling the EFI & ETCS fuses but not straight away. I guess it hadn't had long enough to learn about the new fuel with my driving etc. I topped up with some 95 ron again today so now it's somewhere in between with the 99 ron thats left and I've reset it again. Hopefully it won't be quite so bad now. It was an impulse thing to try one tank for an experiment but now I see it would have to be a bit more of a sustained experiment. Calculated mpg as 17mpg but it did go like it had a rocket tied to it. :)

I'm looking forward to getting a prolex induction kit so I can get it a bit more responsive without the fuel cost issue.
