    77.9 - 78.9 near me...

    Probably off topic, but has anyone tried the new performance offering from BP yet, 'BP ULTIMATE'?

    BP Ultimate is 97 RON so i hav been told, compared to Optimax which is 98 RON. so if ur car is runnin a 98 RON programme then i would presume BP Ultimate wouldnt be any good (would anyone care to correct me on this?)

    I thinks its just super unleaded with a few refinements and a bit of fresh marketing~IMO.
