I believe their is a bit of a debate at the moment on whether SHELL OPTIMAX or BP ULTIMATE is better or worse for your Falcons. Well I must say I have started using BP Ultimate in the last 2 weeks, after using Shell Optimax for the past 2 years and I have found the Ultimate has made my Idle a lot smoother. For "seat of your pants"power. Well it seems to be the same as when I used Optimax. But with Fuel economy I have worked out that I got a little bit more with the Optimax. Theirs my 2cents worth :D :D

I certainly can second (third?) that exactly! :D Optimax for econ, Ultimate for a smooth runner... Depends if I'm rich or poor when I fill up... And if 91RON is $1.03 or 89.9....

Ive always used BP ultimate for my previous car and the current one, both have run very nicely off of it to. Bad thing is thou atm its about $109.9/L *ouch* :shock:

Still, i put in $25 worth of it the other day and so far i have got 190kms out of it with stil about 5-10L left b4 it hits the orange section on the petty gauge.

Pretty good if you ask me. Also using Octane boost too. :roll:

I've always ran my V8 on ultimate and I have no Complaints.

About 3 weeks ago I was driving my wifes VW Golf and I filled it with Ultimate, I told her I filled it and I didn't think it was a big deal that I put Ultimate in it, so I didn't tell her.

Two days later she was telling me how well her Car was idling and how it seemed to have more go.

I told her about the Ultimate and she said she normally gets the Cheap hose.

Hows that for a Blind fold test. :D

I find out of all the diffrent fuel's that are avalible now they do make your car run either like a bat out of hell or a bucket of s**t and now I'll rank the fuel in performance wise,
1.BP ULTIMATE
2.MOBIL SYNERGY
3.VORTEX,MOBIL PREMIUM 96RON,BP PREMIUM 95RON
4.OPTI(CRAP)MAX
5.ANY UNLEADED THATS FROM 1 OF THE ABOVE

As most of you guys know the cost of fuel is on the rise AGAIN so shop around as 2cents-14cents diffrence in diffrent area's not just coles & woolies but every servo will compeate especially if thers's more then 3 in a 500m area

Gee why did you rate Optimax that Bad. I have never had any issue with it except the idle is a bit rough and thats why I use Ultimate now. But I found I have a better seat of your pants power gains than the rest. I have found the old Vortex did absolutely nothing and made me engine idle even more hesitiant than Optimax.

Ultimate truly is the fuel of kings!! I've paid up to $1.28/L during the *real* bad spell we had a while ago. At that price you think twice about boosting up, but usually ends in same result :wink:

Fuel usually a little more expensive in my area for some reason. Damn car guzzles as well.

At the moment i run the EL on Mobile Synergy, before that i was using optimax, and it would ping under any load on a warm day. Since using Synergy it hasnt done it once, and the ecomomy has been better. Power, well it feels more responsive to me, but at a guess they are at a par.

I will give BP a good two week run as of next week to see what happens.
