    Yes, you can use any fuel with a higher RON grade. Just don't use one with a lower one. Tesco Super Unleaded with 10% biofuel (99RON) seems to be about the best at the moment.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the quick reply...

    Is it better to wait till the tank is almost empty when putting a higher ron in or to mix ? or doesnt it really matter ?

    Thanks in advance

    Mixing fuel is fine, although I waited until the tank was very low and then added a good injector cleaner (petrol additive) along with Shell V-power.

    I use it simply because I 'feel' that it makes the car more responsive...

    Good luck,

    Clach
