Last night when i filled the car up I used BP ultimate (which i always use) but I added some Nulon pro strength octane boost and clean.. Would this harm the engine in anyway? Or just do it some good. Dont seem to notice any difference..

No difference. Pre AU EEC's (knock sensor) won't advance timing if better fuel is used, but will of course retard things if bad fuel is put it.

The cleaner will probaly help (if you'r injectors were alredy dirty). But you've probably just made an expensive tank of fuel more expensive.

That said, I always use premium because the quality of regular here in Canberra is very variable.

The quality of regular is s**t. It's worth the premium for premium just for a more reliable quality fuel. But don't think it makes you any faster.

With 1 bottle of the pro strength stuff you'll increase the octane rating of Ultimate 98 to 100. Better burn more power but you wont feel any difference driving it.

how do you get more power??

you've just slowed the burn rate of the fuel and not advanced the timing to suit it...
