I thought it said something like 60Bhp.... The test car's had to be re-mapped to that particular fuel, but why on earth would you pay £11 a gallon for petrol!?

I think its just due to the high octane as its 102.... I guess this is how they get my car running over 300BHP in Japan because of that... Awesome and impressive, but definitely not worth £11 a gallon... Why cant they make normal petrol a little better like 98 ron for Super or even normal and then go from there?

Better performance for most people then, not just a select few.. Or failing that, they should just make ALL the petrol cheap!!
If it was this high can you believe the kick off everyone would do?!
