Just wondering if people find one better than the other from their experiences. I am using V-Power at the moment only cause I got heaps of those shop-a-dockets for them.

I'd like to find out more about this also. I am using and always have used V-power as shell is closer to my place. Is there really any difference between the two?

ive been told by an engine builder, who dynod a particular engine using all the different typs of fuels around and he said the best to use was the 95 octane from mobil. im sure the engine was a gen 3 he also told my mate who he built a touigh chev for to use the fuel


i cant presonally back up his claims but he is a well respected engine and head builder in melbourne.

i've done a few threads a while ago.

long and short, i we found in our racing karts that the old optimax was filled to the brim with s**t and filth.

vortex wasn't too bad but didnt' give the most power and ultimate was the best we could get.

but its all fuel. 98 will give a tad more pwr and better economy, but you'll pay for it

personally after months of testing the three top rating premo fuels( v-power 98, vortex 98 and bp ultimate )

all test i did where over 3 full tanks then 3 full tanks of crap 91 octane fuel

i have found the best fuel of the three to be the v-power 98 my reason been that with the caltex vortex i had a slight improvent on fuel consumption down from 37+l /100 to 28l/100 with the ultimate i had a difference from 37+l/100 down to round the 25l/100 and then the v -power been the most economical comin down from a 37=l/100 to as my cars sits now a 22.7l/100 this may only be my car but testing it on my dads el gli runnin 17.6l/100 and mums hyundia sonata at about 15l/100 so will advise on improvements as they are both on thier second tank now

I was just curious whether anybody felt that their Idle benefitted at all from the 98 Ron fuels? ie smoothed it out at all?

i don't find any difference between the 2 98RON petrol. Though between 91RON and 98RON, I have had better economy. about an extra 50km to 100km in difference, depending on where i drive majority of the time.
