Time for a bit of a rant.....
I recently bought a 210 S3, 50k hard driven miles and standard(Forge DV 007). I Am happy enough with its performance, not mindblowingly quick, gut renching stopping power or rail like handling, but nice, progressive power and overall a nice place to be!
Having previously owned several Honda Type R's, a Golf GTi's(MK3) and a Mitsubishi EVO i thought I knew the benefits of higher octane fuel. The price of the 99/100 RON recently has gone insane(not as bad in Ireland i might add) so therefore i tend to be tight and stick with run of the mill 95 RON.
After speaking to my local REVO dealer,who suggested that high Octane fuel makes a considerable difference to the 1.8T VAG unit, I decided to buy some Fuchs Pro Boost additive.
Well...... 200 miles later and i cannot wipe the smile off my face. I mean, night and day difference!!! Never before did i notice SUCH a difference, even with the EVO being way more aggressive than the S3.
Throttle respone is noticably quicker, the motor revs more freely and power is delivered with much more aggression......
Has anyone else had any experience with Octane Boost additives?
