    Default Does engine performance change with age ?

    A Strange question maybe but............ here is my situation,

    I run a 2.2 direct 48 k miles currently drinking V Power.

    Over the last few k miles I think it is reving more freely and pulling better. All good fun

    Is it just my lead foot or is there a performance curve related to the age of the engine ?

    Over the life of the engine

    48K I would feel is nicely run in, I have yet to reach that mileage & yet it seems to go well. ..
