    I filled up with v power earlier. Well unless there selling normal petrol in the v power pump. Ha. I've also heard about the 101octane fuel. But don't know when it's coming out.

    VPower ran out near here a few months back in all sites but it was just because of the weather. Filled up today with about 300 million other people filling up at the same time, think there's plenty here now.

    Can't wait for 101/2 - should be near race tracks rather than all sites I guess?!?

    Just seen that BP released a 102 octane in 2006 at about 5 garages down south. At £2.50+per litre!!!

    I would love shell to bring out a 102 octane. Apparently you see 7.5% more power than 97 octane with the BP

    Going by the garage last night again, looked like they only had 3 out of 12 pumps working, out of 95 and diesel too, perhaps just a local problem for the garage.


    Ref the 100+ octane, standard apr stage 1 mapped 98/99, should work fine with the 100+ ????? (Should the price ever be reasonable), so should alternating between v-power/ultimate and this 100+ be ok for the engine?
