    I love V-Power and if they've developed a new type then they're being very quiet about it - unless anyone's found an article anywhere? Just rumours at the moment. Down here on the South coast there's loads of it.

    Wonder if there's money to be made tanking some up to you guys in Scotland? Lol

    Hasn't anyone of you up there asked the garage staff? Unless it's a comnspiracy, their area manager would have foreseen all this hoo-haa and told them why there was going to be a shortage, temporailly.

    Just being logical, lol.

    I Am The Man!

    I Am The Man!

    Read this - http://www.shell.com/home/content/gl...ries_0109.html

    And I found this comment somewhere (lost the webpage but the text was on my clipboard - lol), sorry I can't provide the link. Anyway ... :

    "The refinery that supplies the shell garages has been taken over by a new company. As part of the takeover, they initiated QC checks in the plant. V power, which is marketed at 99ron failed the octane tests and as such has been pulled from distribution until the refinery sorts it out and get's it back to 99ron."

    Next???
