Hi all

Just got my FN2 Type R today :)


The dealer recommended not using higher octane fuels until the first service. He said to use regular and not premium unleaded also. I asked him why and he said "it was for warranty purposes".
Anyone have any recommendations or info?

Congratulations! Enjoy :D

Really!! I think your dealer needs to explain that statement.

Not yet had my first service done and i've been mainly using BP Ultimate or Tesco Premium (when you can get 5p/litre off)
What could this possibly do to my car to affect the warranty :confused:

Running on higher octane fuels gives higher boost pressures, if the Engine is not run in correctly then this could have some impact on the engine.

"Higher octane fuels actually allow the fuel to evaporate more readily in the engine, especially at high engine speeds, leading to more complete combustion, smoother, more responsive operation, better engine breathing and increased performance"

So in order to get the best usage out of the higher octane you need to be revving in the high rev ranges - which you don't really want to do until the car has run in :D

To be honest with you Type-R drivers, I don't think you will get the best out of the high octane fuels whilst normal driving, you certainly will on a track though ;)

Spacey - don't worry - if you want to use high octane then go for it - just observe the run in period as specified in the Wiki and everything will be OK :D

An so you will as the fuel is burning more efficiently - especially if you use V-Power as this has added cleaning agents as well :D

I always used it in my Corolla T-Sport as It was always running in 'lift' [smilie=lil_red_dev:

GF said it was a waste of money but the extra performance was well worth it

BP ultimate, for some reason I've yet to find any shell garages selling V power over here, would like to try it, seems to be well thought of.

The number plate

It may NOT be real by I know a guy with a Porsche GT3 with P15 AFF (the glasgow term for P155 OFF)

Laugh every time I see it
