Higher RON fuel

Hi all,

Is anyone running a higher RON fuel in their road car?

Just weighing up the pro's and con's really for running 100 ron, and if it's worth the extra £2 per litre (probably not).

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

I run 99 Ron in both my Evo and my daily, I get better mpg in my daily with 99 ron so the extra cost is balanced out by the better mpg. I don’t check the evo’s mpg, it’s not that type of car

On a road car that is driven regularly then race fuel will empty your bank account.

I use panta xs in my skyline which is a predominantly road car with a bit of drag racing use once a month but it only sees 2k miles a year max, usually much less and it's expensive to fuel for any random Sunday drives I go out on
