    Tesco high octane fuel?? 97 or 99 RON?

    as Tesco super unleaded is the same price as the normal BP i run I thought I'd stick a tankfull in. But someone I know said that it is 99RON which sounds too high? I think BP ultimate etc is 97RON.

    Has anyone run Tesco super unleaded? I'm sure it would be fine but thought I'd see if you guys have used it?

    Mine is the 1.8 16v 02 Convertible?

    Cheers

    it always used to be tesco 99RON but im sure i've seen quite a few people mention 97RON lately so not sure if its changed in all or some areas,

    i always used to get it in my turbo, had no problems and didnt notice any difference for it compared to V-Power etc.

    We have been running the bus on Tesco's super unleaded, and I am sure Tangoid said she seemed much happier for it.

    They do two - 97 and 99, and it varies from store to store across the country
