Is it really true that these fuels offer more power? Or it is just the masses having the 'placebo effect' since they're paying extra?

Hmm.. all this while I thought that higher RON fuels only offer better power when the car is tuned for it by advancing ignition timing..

Hmm.. I wonder if I put racing fuel in my car, and don't go for tuning.. will feel a lot of power difference ah? A bit maybelah.. but I wonder if can really feel or not?

For me, 1hp difference cannot be felt.. but maybe I have butt made out of concrete.

Hey, can't argue with the majority, right? (O_o)

p.s. hints of sarcasm, don't you think?

If you run normal fuel without knocking,,,then race fuel will slow you down.

moral of d story: dont buy fuel which is expensive (nevermind what brand they are)....if u want more power, then tune ur ride....

Moral: If you want more power, buy a bigger engine.

4litres in a tiny civic will make the car super powerful regardless of what crappy fuel you put in it. ROFL!

well guyz, this is what i've heard from a friend of mine which involves in the O&G line...
v-power does have extra additives which could help to clean your engine compared to the normal oils. so it is not advisable to use it as a daily fuel coz in times it could 'eat up' ur engine. u can use it occasionally ie 1 pump after five pumps of normal fuel..

Wah revive old thread. :emoticon_U:

Anyway I tried projet, caltex techron, v-power and esso. Kinda feel v-power is better if you pump it once in awhile. Projet is oklah but low mileage for my eg (dunno why). Now use techron regularly and it's not bad. :regular_smile:

this information comes from petronas dagangan engineer..

all malaysian petrol sucks big time...

all klang valley petrol came from the same source station..cyberjaya/putrajaya area..

he constantly asking me to bring him to tt..wanna get to know new people..
mayb one day i will bring him join our tt..then can ask him puas puas...

but still im using shell most of the time...im a con-sumer and easily fell for great advertisement...

SHELL (for me la..)
v power - if long distance can get xtra 10+ km
super - never really check but ok-ish la
Diesel - definately xtra mileage~!tested ~~~!!!

power - my car slow bai....where got power

overall still shell consumer n spending about RM 50/day (diesel)
