Taking a completely unscientific approach, I can say that my car prefers our local supermarket super unleaded. Based on doing similar journeys, driving conditions and similar styles over successive weeks on different fuels, I find I can achieve higher and more prolonged boost and Sainsbury's super unleaded. MPG is better, too. A close second is Esso Supreme (again, a 97 UK RON fuel), then Total Excellium (I think this might be a 98 UK RON fuel), Texaco SUL and lastly Shell V-Power, with which my car misfires, gets little over base boost and fuel mileage down to around 20 MPG. Our FIAT, on the other hand loves V-Power :) Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
