I used to use supermarket fuel on the auris, been using Tesco E5 but thinking of using shell E10 bout 15p cheaper per litre times 55 litre tank...about £7 cheaper fill upThis is good reading
I work for Sainsbury's don't think we do that one at our store but I'm gone for 5am 🤣Sainsbury's super unleaded(97RON)(e5), its the same price as Shell/BP etc E10.
Sorry slightly off topic... How did the Auris compare to the Civic? As I considered getting one...I've never tried E10 yet, but E5 being about £1.55 a litre was think of putting E10 in but sticking to shell or bp

ive driven an auris hybrid before, my dad used to have one, sister has the 1.8 petrol GR? i think is it? that was nippy enough. The hybrid was ok too , as long as it was in sport mode, which kinda defeats purpose mile sbetter than the pruis hybrid he had before it <shudders> i hated that souless piece of excrement i would refuse to drive it ever.Sorry slightly off topic...

my 2.0 Tsi GT pre-facelift rocco was bombproof 60k miles in 3yr not even disks only big thing was the sensor in manifold went a fault in the TFSI units affecting all VAG, £3 sensor, £500 manifold.The 1.6 MK1 Auris was the direct competitor to the Civic.
Was that or a Mk5 Golf 1.6 FSI but somehow i ended up with the Civic over those two. I just bought the first decent car I saw...
My Dad has a mk5 Golf which is awesomely smooth but has engine issues (lol coil packs), my Civic has no such issues. Trumped by Japanese engineering!
well the old 505 estate conquered africa they reckon the old 7 seater.Yeah maybe more luck of the draw by the time stuff gets really old. Have heard of stuff like ancient Peugeots lasting years....
Same with my 72 1302s beetle n 91 corolla gti16 white facelift ...less than 20 AE92 engined gti-16s left in uk mate has a 91 silver/grey one restored same engine as your MK1 MR2 I believe, same eraWell when I went to Egypt a few years back it was filled with ancient Euro hatches... Anywhere with sun and heat means older stuff just endures as no rust!
Yes I knew someone with a 309 GTi well into the 90s... Haven't seen anything of that era for ages. Even something like a 206 GTi 1.6 is worth a fortune now. Sometimes I wish I tried to keep my old mk1 MR2 or BMW E30.... Then again I'd have needed space to store them until now!
My FN2 feels smoother on 97RON than 99.shell/bp E10 full fill E5 Super shell bp half tank rinse and repeat. for same reasons as squibble i find its smoother on bp but shell often cheaper. I prefer how the car feels on BP, with Esso it is punchy but sounds rougher if that makes sense, the BP gives best mpg and smoothest pull with E5 or E10 tbh, i prefer E10 as it leaves less carbon on bettys white bum bum more efficient burn so cleaner exhaust pipes also with E10.
rocco got asda fuel never tesco had bad experiences in rocco with tesco & their 99 even though it was mapped and set for 98.
Been using VPower/Optimax as long as I can remember. Had my last 3 cars (2 Civic’s and a Heavily modified Lexus) a total of 18 years and none have missed a beat so far!This is good reading
