Re: Shell V-Power vs BP Optimax?

it could be worse, there was some member on here a few weeks ago running an sti on 90ron in St. Lucia! Jap import car needing 100ron, car was unmapped!! with no additives being used. - poor bloke must have been caning his engine. I think it was a newish car too.

Lol Sure has.. I Had no choice it just wasnt running right.
Since iv gone back to Bp 97ron it feels back to normal again.. i will remap tho so i can use V power and get optimum power soon enough.
