If you give Alyn a call at AS Performance, he'll sort you out something I'm sure of it

He's online here somewhere If you look in the Various Companies - .Org Deals, he's in there...

Here's a link for quickness

I would be very weary of the claims of that FuelCat......

None I have ever seen advertised have done anything to improve the RON of fuel....

tbh i think the fuelcat is a load of crap, so i would run your car on v power and ditch the bit of junk.

also i'd stay clear of ebc brake pas. mate had them and they failed on him, since then i wont go near em.

good set of ferodo pads will see you right

I would guess mate it would hold at least 50 litres, maybe 60 max?

The V Max is great stuff so I've heard, very recommended by the guys and gals on here I cant use it as I'm miles from the pumps but if you want to pay the extra its worth it.

Definitely give Alyn a call mate on your brakes He will honestly sort you out and give you a good deal as your a .org member as well (best mention it ) he know's what he's talking about

Phil would be about right with 55-60. It costs me about 8000 yen to fill mine up from empty @ 145 yen a litre. I can read Japanese so I'll check my manual when i get home and give you a definitve answer.

Can confirm that official figures for an Impreza (turbo) is 60 litres. 50 w/out a turbo.

Yeah Tidge, that would be in yen.
145 quid for a litre of fuel would stretch anyones budget. I'm paying about 60p a litre for high octane. Not bad eh!

What octane do you put in your Scoob rikimaru? My Type R was imported from Japan (well stating the obvious I guess!!) but I was wondering what type's of fuel you guys have out there?

No wonder the Type R in standard trim is 300bhp and the 22B is 350Bhp over there!!

Although I bet BP dont charge 3 a litre for it tho!!
