    Same here when using V-Power Nitro super unleaded - when using the button in the filler neck to get the extra 7 litres in the tank.

    Look down into the filler neck and on the rear side you see a small (1/4") round button, press and hold that down - which it opens the air breather from the tank - which allows you to get more fuel into the tank.

    Typically after the pump stops I can get an extra 6-8 litres into the tank using this method.

    Birmingham to Holland and back? you should be able to do it within two full tanks/fill ups.
    half tank shell fuel save, half tank of shell V power nitro will be great.

    and to your question how much?
    well..depend on the type of fuel you add in, and where do you fill up.
    city gas stations are often cheaper than the motorway ones.

    Couldn't find any such button on mine. Maybe an RS4 feature only?

    Might be a quattro only feature - due to the different size/shape fuel tanks.

    Jeff and I both have quattros and neither have stumbled upon this feature. Someone said something about it on the Golf Mk4's as well but again I couldn't find it on that either.

    The only RS4s I know that don't have it are the American ones as they have a closed vapour absorption system, maybe that applies to other VAG cars too?

    Maybe it's only on petrol-engined models.
