    Just wondered how many S4 owners on the forum are running on 95 Ron since the price of fuel has rocketed, I started with V Power and have recently tried 95 (Shell) and must admit I don't really find any difference in performance.

    No difference either. I fill up with Super if i can but if i need fuel and a garage doesn't have it i just go with 95.

    I'm on a tank of 95 at the moment, I think there may be a 'slight' difference,,,, almost imperceptible........ Then again it could be psychological...!!


    Or in my case Pathological........??:laugh:

    Yea spot on. I often have to travel away from the office and up until the start of the year I had always driven in (just in case I was called to a meeting) One of the guys in the office said pretty much the same as you and since about mid Jan this year, I have started walking in unless I have a pre-planned meeting that needs me to travel to it.

    Also, I went fron a 2.0 T FSI Quattro (DTM Ed) to an S4 and I reckon that with my new regime, I am probablly spending the same on fuel - and I have 2 advantages 1) when I drive I JUST LOVE IT and because I am walking some of the time I am loosing weight and getting fitter Win win !!
