I put ?10 worth in the Corsa pool car (1.2) for a laugh... just like optimax really.. but i spose it would have helped if someone could have chipped the corsa's ECU to appricate the new octaine level!
exactly what happened to me mate light came on (usually a regular occurance with the v6 ) and had to fill up with the cheaper stuff from a bp garage , i definatly noticed some sluggishness come into play and not half as responsive , so i try my best to stick to v power nowI have to admit that I have run the V5 on Optimax since buying the car and have started to wonder if it is worth the extra expense.
That was until last week when the fuel warning light came on and I had to fill the car from Morrisons.
The lower octane fuel has made a noticable difference. I genuinly can feel a difference in the cars performance and don't belive that I am imagining it.
The car has been sluggish and I have used more fuel. Am looking forward to filling up on proper petrol again (but not paying for it).
