Tesco 99 ron fuel



hi guys looking for views on this any good currently at 89.9 at the moment in town thinking of putting some in..can i just ask i have about a qtr of a tank left if mixed with the standard fuel would the benefits of the 99 be nulled out? cheers guys thanks
 
cheers guys lol i know it wont blow it up but if it shows no different then might as well stay with the cheaper stuff really!! but i thought with the high ron it would be one of the best out there for performance
 
cheers mate where can you get this v power from i know it is shell garages but is there a sight you can go on to see if it is close by? also for the tesco stuff as well any petrol locater on the internet cheers

gives worse economy that vpower i think its somthings to do with its bio-ethenol content

correct, bio-ethanol used to bump the ron rating bue doesnt do much for run and performance, despite the ron/mon average being higher than optimax.

You dont see ferrari running tesco 99, exactly. V-Power wins...........

Lmao but were not exactly running anything near a Ferrari now are we!!!

On topic i used to swear by it until i put a tank of Optimax one day and havnt looked back sinec, doesnt only give better economy, the car runs much better on it i find!!!

Will take a few tank fulls of either to notice a difference though id imagine if youve been using standard 95!!!

i used tesco 99 ron for along time, ran fine no problems but after a few tanks of v-power iam now getting 6mpg more than i would buying tesco

v-power is good stuff.
 
You get crap economy from Tesco 99 - when I've run it (out of necessity) I get approx. 5mpg less than Optimax/V-Power.

Just used for the first time today. Got shite mpg too :dapprove: Could almost see the needle going down on the motorway

i have used both V-power and Tesco 99 in a range of different cars.

In the 172 Tesco 99 is rubbish. I didnt get any extra milage when i did an eco run, and no power gain. With V-power i got about 30 miles more on the eco run, but again, no real power gain.

However, I did have a Seat Leon Cupra before, and the results were different. Tesco 99 gave me less miles, but a big power gain, and a much better exhaust sound - it even popped a few times in low revs :clap:
The V-power gave me more miles again, but less power and sound than the tesco.

In short, Tesco is good if your car has a turbo, and you drive hard like i used to. V-power is good if you want that big extra economy from your car.

Something else you should also remember is that V-Power is packed full of adetives which help keep your engine clean, and in general good condition. They also prolong the life of the petrol should you have it in a car you only drive a couple of times a week. The tesco 99 tends to go off quite quickly.

Basically:
Tesco - Turbo's cars only, use it up and use V-power once a month to flush through.
V-Power - any car, less power but better milage and keeps engine in good nick

Agree with that^^^

Anim@l - good to meet you too. The meet was a good crack, defo do it again
 
is it s**t? :dapprove:[/quote]

V-power? nah I don't think so, although BP ultimate seems to give a bit more torque lower down in the rev range
 
cheers guys i filled up with normal crap again (it was only 77.9 cos i shopped at tesco he he) and i also put in the redex injector cleaner and it has increased my mpg over the weekend from 29.9 to 32.6 even when driven hard and the engine is less rough and seems a little quiter on the tapets now cheers..when should this cleaner be used everytime or once a month?

where from! i filled up at shell on A61 on friday night with v-power... no keyring :mad:

is it s**t? :dapprove:
I think I know where you mean, but it was one in Middleton, Leeds.

It's more than just a keyring I found out as well, you can put it in supermarket trolleys in place of a pound coin. Special, eh?
