    Default Shell V power

    Ive been thinking of changing to Shell V power rather than standard unleaded. Its only 7p dearer per litre but does it actually make any difference to the engine? I go through a full tank each week.

    Makes the Signum go like a rocket, I know it is a bit expensive and sometimes I get through 3 tanks a week but it is quite fun when you pour on the power.

    there is a touch more torque, but tbh I don't see the extra value. I see the same performance and mileage out of Shell 95 octane. I must add that ANY shell fuel seems better than others.

    A good way of getting BP ultimate cheap is to buy Sainsburys Super Unleaded, its apparently the same stuff

    My car loves it! Fill up on an empty tank and by the end of that tank or start of the next one you'll feel improved accelereation. I find it's more economical on the motorway and it cleans your engine on the way! BUY BUY BUY!

    I have said before not a HUGE difference BUT it is worth that little extra, you will notice a difference through lower rev ranges, better response.
