    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???

    Opitmax was 98 RON
    V-Power is 99 RON

    Super Unleaded is minimum 97 RON

    Tesco 99 is best :thumbsup:

    Hey I just switched from a 1.6 to a 2.0T. I doubt that I'll notice the difference between th two fuels right away! I just prefer it cos it's cheaper

    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 :no:
