    Default BP Ultimate, I HAVE noticed a difference! Have YOU?

    I put some BP Ultimate Unleaded into the wife's Fiesta and I must say I HAVE actually noticed a difference, on first input!

    The car seems to start easier, revs smoother and just generally seems to be a lot more responsive, and stalls a lot less at lower rev's!

    I dont if its just me wanting to notice these differences but I am 99% certain it feels better!

    I will have to now try the ultimate stuff in my Vec-B Diesel too, but I guess there will be a big gap in between seeing a difference in that?

    Am I right in noticing these differences? Is that what it should do?

    Oh, and the downsight....the miles are down by approx 7 miles to a tenner!

    Hoepfully that will go up by the time its bettered the entire fuel system?!

    Your thoughts on this?


    Bye bye Vec B

    Never tried it mate, I know people claim it gives them a % increase in power but then it would have to be about 50% on my 1.8LS to notice any difference!

    The last option is not technically true, Shell V-power is in fact BP Ultimate. Just rebadged.

    thing is , i have only tried it in my old 10 year old non injector 1.2 corsa, so a higher rated petrol will make no difference any way.

    Thumbs up

    I've used the ultimate diesel in my 2.2dti sri and I can notice a differance. There is definately an increase in power and my average mpg went from 47.5 to 49 so it does make a differance.

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 66000

    The price increase for BP Ultimate is just too much for me, compared with 106.9 for regular diesel, Ultimate is 126.9 which is just too much, but I do use V-Power (112.9) and notice good results.
