I don't think it's RON97. Shell declare it Shell V-Racing fuel with colour in red. It must be higher than RON97. Their RON97 is still green in colour.

i read somewhere that when v-power racing was first introduce it was on ron98...
but now yes, v-power racing is actually ron97...just blue color...
well esso ron97 is purple color...so i guess it is an overpriced ron97 for v-power racing...
just my 2cents...

i accidentally bumped into an article not too long ago (cant find it anymore) on the shell website.

its about the launch of the FIRST ever V-Power (blue pump i think)

it that article it mentioned that V-Power is RON97 because Malaysian Law only allows a maximum of RON97 to be sold in Malaysia.

and i havent heard of Malaysian Law being changed to bring in higher RON.

other countries, yes, they can go higher. but Malaysia id say no.

so yeah... RON97 V-Power is.

I am not sure whether in Malaysia, we have some kind of Govt authority body/organisation to check on the RON value at every pump station stations on periodical/constant basis. :hmmmm:

In Europe, they got their govt agency to do it (in constant period basis). They will check every pump to ensure that the RON stated in that pump is containing the exact minimum RON label as per mentioned. So that the customer will get what they paid for. Then they will sealed the pump with some hologram sticker mentioned that it is verified containing the fuel of above said RON, together with the date of inspection. For those pump station owner who failed the inspection, would get the hefty fine.

I've encounter once at Shell station R&R before exit Negeri Sembilan. (after KLIA exit). Sorry due to forgot the place. It's happen a day before RON97 increase to rm2.70 last time. I was pump in around 10am and noted price was rm2.90. I've shocked, but just realized that price will increase by today (that day). Then by evening when travelling back to Ipoh, i pumped in again and noted that priced was became rm2.70. I think that some few petrol stations take advantage to user within period of transition of petrol price.
