DEFINATLY The higher the ron value the more bhp (only +1,2,3 etc) its not seriously noticable but it will give you more power.

Its costly though! - Big sticker on my04 fuel cap USE ONLY 98RON FUEL :shock:

I cannot get it everywhere around here so cannot use all the time, but always when i can find it/

You will have done right, most people run their cars on optimax. You do have an advantage over us with the imports, you can put any petrol into your car and it should be ok, if we put lower RON petrol in ours it would run like a bag of sh*t. Talking of petrol, we put the BP super in ours once and our knock link lit up like a Christmas tree, never again will we use that!
