    i had read that our ecu's aren't programmed to benefit from the higher octane fuel....that's why theres no actual benefit?

    even haynes says not to use it because theres no point.

    who's right??

    you see -

    In our independent tests in a range of cars, BP Ultimate 102 gave typical power benefits of between 4 and 7.5 per cent above 97 octane BP Ultimate Unleaded when the ignition was remapped. On a high performance, turbo charged vehicle, with boost pressure increased, the power benefits seen included an increase in maximum power of 37 bhp (8.6%), and as much as 60 bhp (16%) at some points in the engine speed range.

    even this is only for people who have had their ecu remapped to accept it. std cars wont notice the difference.
