    So - anyone started using this now as it replaces v-power.

    The saab scene have seen some proven positive effects. The tronic engine management of the Saabs will adapt to fuel...

    So wondered if any Vec owners have used to good effect... Will tank the CDTI up with it next fill as well as my 9-5 Aero.

    I put half a tank of this in this morning actually.... will report back in a couple of days.

    I noticed the car was smoother with general v power over standard a fuel... so have only been using v power for the past 1000 or so miles and as you know since buying the car I've only covered about 3000 miles

    Use V-Power, haven't had a chance to try Nitro. What are the supposed changes / enhancements they've made to Nitro over V-Power anyway?

    It has Nitro in the name! So it is bound to be better.

    There are additional friction modifiers plus its a standardised 99RON where as v_power wasnt... Apart from that - not sure on other differences.

    One thing many note is that when you fill up - you get a unique smell - something that was not present with v-power.

    Tried the diesel in it the other day, didn't feel any different to normal V Power, petrol boys might notice though!
