Hi peepz, is it essential and best for the engine on a VIII MR, to tank it up with optimax rather than your normal unleaded. The prices are steep, just wanted to know if its worth it. Basically getting this MR has been quite a story, but deciding to get it in the end.

Thanks

And whatever you do, dont use the stuff that supermarkets provide - will f*ck your engine in no time.

order of preference is: (for me)

Optimax
BP ultimate
super unleaded (Esso's is supposed to good one, based on heresay!!)

As was said don't get supermarket super unleaded, branded unleaded will contain around 14 additives to improve the fuels performance, supermarket ones, at best, will only have 3 or 4. Unless its changed recently!

Yeah it is.... but it's a real pain trying to find an Esso station near to where I live so I mainly live off BP Ultimate with the odd tank of Optimax for it's cleaning abilities.
