    Might have noticed a very slight difference. I do (I think!) in mine on the odd occasion I put it in.

    Wife normally throws in the normal cheap stuff, well the not cheap normal unleaded. But when I fill up i put the premium stuff and I'm sure I feel a noticeable improvement in performance and sound. But pretty sure it's psychological. Lol

    Its all I put in mine tbh, I always us tesco's monmentum as its 99 octane rather than the normal 97/98 in ones like v-power etc. I noticed the car runs smoother,less flatspots and better MPG.

    I changed from normal Tesco's unleaded to the Momentum, and most certainly feel the difference.

    Smoother and better MPG. Its the only thing ill use unless absolutly no alternative.

    yep the higher octane would deliver a better response and on an almost empty tank you should notice an improvement

    it takes around 3 full tanks for the full effect
