    Default Super Unleaded low sulphur

    Topped up with this by mistake this morning. Only put in 10 squids worth as I have not used it before. Any good? or stay away from it?

    Think I had better check with BSR too.

    All petrol is ultra low sulphur (ULS)

    I don't use the so called 'super' fuels because I really cannot see the benefit of them. Fuel companies promote them as they make more money on them. Unless your car has a knock sensor, then there will be no discernable difference to power etc.

    I can see you have BSR stage 3 remap, and I believe BSR recommend 98/99 RON for this state of tune. However, I'm pretty sure you won't do any damage by putting regular unleaded in. I think the 2.0T does have a knock sensor, so detonation isn't an issue - you will just lose some power when using 95 Ron in this highly tuned state.
    Advisable to check this with BSR, yes.

    edit: just checked the BSR site, and they recommend at least 98 RON for stage 3 http://en.bsr.se/products/tinfo/2/

    Missed the engine and BSR map - so it may do some good to stick with the higher RON fuels in it. My previous comments were for 'as standard' engines - eg 1.8

    Still Super unleaded but just low sulphur Checked on the other SUL pumps and is different to them.

    Think I will whack some more of the "Normal" SUL in - just in case.

    When you say Ultra Low Sulpher, which particular fuel was it? - as Ste said they're all low sulpher (to varying degrees) these days. As long as you are using SUL with the Stage 3 then I think that's all you need to be concerned about. The S3 will take and run with normal UL on the odd occasion if that's all you can get, but you won't get the full power and you don't want to do it long-term/on a regular basis.

    It was Shell SUL....

    Popped a question to BSR. Think it should be OK tho. Just not noticed the ULS sign on the pump nozzel before, and then seeing the others with the normal markings of Shell SUL pump - made me question what I had done.

    The Optimax type stuff? - if so then it'll be absolutely fine.

    Well that petrol burnt out very fast!

    Had to refill again today. A tenner would normally last at least a 2.5 days. Checked at the pump again and there are definitely two types of SUL at Shell. Low sulphur and Ultra low sulphur.

    I filed up with Ultra low Sulphur last time - no more.
