Well my 1.8Ts not been running badly recently, just not as special as I remember... Over the last 3 months it's had nothing but supermarket "cheap" fuel in it in a cost saving drive!

Filled it up from pretty much dry this morning with Optimax and it seems to run sweeter! The lift-off stutter seems Less pronounced now and it seems to rev more freely. Seems less vibration as well...

Now I know this is odd, but it just struck me on the way back from lunch that it seems generally to run a bit aweeter...

I tried Optimax for a few months a while ago and noticed no difference! Just wondering whether I've seen a lack of the petrol conditioners from the supermarkets petrol having an effect over the last few months.

I'll see how this tankful gets on... In fact I was struggling to get the car to lift-off stutter this afternoon. Maybe that's got something to do with the fact it's booked in the stealers for Tuesday!!

What do you all think is it in my mind? Am I going mad?
