    Default Octane Booster ??

    Right guys, move back to Shetland next month, problem is I also move back in time, you cannot get super unleaded up there I know the car runs like a bag of spanners on normal stuff. Will octane booster answer all my prayers or is there more to superunleaded than just a shot of octane.





    Not a happy chap !!!






    No super unleaded jeez why oh why am I moving there !!!!

    Dumbarton is the nearest for me and thats about 140 mile round trip or about 1/2 tank of fuel there and back, so not really worth the effort

    Interested to see if this is the solution though

    this is the stuff I was eyeing up, whack a bottle in before filling up 50 litres and it gives you an extra 2 ron ..

    if there is a local airport near any of you enquire about av-gas its 100 ron and for light aircraft and if mixed 50-50 with unleaded it's great, used to put this in my astra / my mates calibra (red top) / saxo-vts / and various other cars and wot a difference it made.......

    only down side was its price at about 80p a litre ,
    but so what its rocket fuel

    mixing it was safest way to use it as of the high ron % and i never had any probs either, i used it for well over 8 months, until price went up and my mate left his job there...
