I love shell because it has the best response. Very addictive. But knocking becomes much more severe in my 20V blacktop. Petron is the best for my engine as knock is really minimal. The response however is slightly sluggish.

For me I alternate between Shell and Petron. I love shell for city drive as it makes stop and go much easier. But I always have to restrain myself and remind myself when I am using shell: "NO BLASTING".
Strange, how come the one with best response has more knocking while the one with less knocking is more sluggish? Usually if knocking then more sluggish also because logically knocking is bad and reduce power. No knocking should correlate with more response and power.

Shell has the best response probably because of the additives that makes the fuel burn easier and faster. That's why is it is easier for knocking to happen too. Response won't be good when knocking occurs. Rather, the response is good until the point of knocking, then there is a decrease.

Petron, I suspect that there are not much additives or maybe their additives does not make the petrol burn as fast and aggressive. Thus the response is slower. But this prevents significant knocking.

Can afford tezza can already afford Ron97 la.
U have to understand some people want to get the car but have to save on something,
WHICH can be saved. So why not.
For instance using using RON 95 over 97.
Or using GT Radial instead of Michelin or something
If can, why not, everyone can explore more options.
If i can afford more than Tezza such as Evo 9, for sure I know I MUST use RON 97.

Want fuel burn faster just use Ron 95 loh! For me Shell will be out forever. Friends ask me to try, at that time was fuel save formula for both Ron 95 and 97. He is on 95 driving NA and says good FC, so for my turbo I opt for Ron 97. But immediately after filling full tank, the response is worse then Esso Ron 95. So much so, I had to drain out the fuel. Not long after Shell change the formula to V Power but I already scare to use Shell....:smokin:
