    Read an article on here... stuck £35's worth in... was disappointed

    Can't feel any difference between the 95 RON and Ultimate so sticking to the cheaper one :roll:

    I have been using this and after 4 tanks have noticed a bit of a difference,though this could be due to the cold morning air now helping the turbo

    Is there a limit where the ECU cannot advance the timing any further? I run 98 octane most of the time but I just wonder if the ECU changes the timing even further past 95 octane.... I've never tried putting octane booster with 98 stuff.. probably only takes it to 100 anyway.

    I'm only on my first tank of Ultimate at the mo, but I'm gonna put more in and see if I can notice a difference. Does seem better.
    After running Optimax for a while I got caught out and put standard Total in. It felt shite

    the ultimate is 98 RON with no additives where as optimax hits 98 with additives so should be a bit better fuel, also at least 4 full tanks though
    Cant Think of Anything Funny To Say

    If both are the 98RON rating how come one could be better than the other :?: . Optimax has always served me well and is the station is only 300 yards away from me .
