    I never bothered on mine. I think it just takes longer to learn the new settings for the air in thats all....
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    just add 50ml of acitone to your fuel every fuel tank,it ups your octane the same. worked in all my cars,including this one.

    http://www.pureenergysystems.com/new...00069_Acetone/ this is one of the links. when i was on the vec b web site i started using it as they raved about it,so now i use it,my dad uses it in his bike and my mum in her deisel peijero and my brother in his vec b.no probs at all.well except nearly stripping my paint trying to add it from a 5 litre bottle,pur it in an old acotone bottle now as it tips nicely into the petrol filler hole.
