OMFG! Look at who is commenting on MPG on that site. :lol:

Will definately fill up at Shell anyway. And since they've recently stopped selling any other type of 95 octane fuel, so Optimax it is.

I remember the days when ciao and dooyoo used to pay BIG money for writing articles.

Mades 100s off them.

Has anyone got any preferences for diesel? I've only ever had a petrol and always tried to avoid supermarkets, I nearly always use my local Esso, always seem to match the supermarket prices and never had a problem so I plan on doing the same on my first ever diesel fill-up.

Yep - just an hour ago. Needed petrol as was down to last dregs. Choice of normal at 98.9 or optimax at 102.9, so I went for the latter.

Got 47.2mpg for a 16 mile trip.

I've been using Optimax exclusively in my Accord Type R since the stuff came out and the economy is about +2 mpg more around town and about +3 to +4 mpg more on the motorway.

It does drive smooooooother on the V-Power/Optimax but I get it more for the better mpg and alleged engine cleaning properties.
