    Default Premium fuels & oils

    Just wondering what is the general opinion on this? Is it all marketing or should we really be parting with our cash for this tiny amount of extra octane etc
    i personally use vpower but really it's just habit now, I like the thought of using premium but in all honest dnt notice a difference

    Depends on your engine - does it have a knock sensor? Also, any additional BHP will be in proportion to the car's standard power output. If you have a 120 BHP car, you might get 3 extra BHP, but can you even feel 3 HP? If you have a 250 BHP car, you might get 12 extra BHP, and that's enough to make a small difference to how it performs. Premium oils are a totally different subject to higher octane fuel though, they don't make your car go faster, they protect the engine better and more of the time than some budget oils.
