    Shell V-Power.... 97 or 99 RON???

    Just been reading Shell's website and they say that V-Power is 99 RON, but at the pumps I've used it says it's 97 RON.

    So..... what is it???

    V-Power is 99 RON

    Super Unleaded is minimum 97 RON

    V-Power is over rated...

    Tesco Super is a better blended product using good components, not just additives like some.

    Maybe you get a more local refinery who supply your Tesco who arn't as good
