Re: Which Octane

I am using BP Ultimate 98, because I am anal.

Used it in my wife's commodore.
Oil was clean still clear between changes.
Used Woolworth's fuel for 2 services and got dirty oil.
Back to ultimate and clean oil again.

Re: Which Octane

The Caltex Vortex is meant to be better, but we have not tried it yet. Ours seems to run fine on Shell.

Hmm, I've been using Shell V-Power and its been quite good. I find that BP Ultimate in WA has more additives that made my old 300C (tuned to 98) knock.

So I used to use octane booster with BP, but Woolies didn't knock.

Being in Canberra now, I think I'll just be using Shell V-Power with the 5.7

Re: Which Octane

From what I have read on the forums:
BP Ultimate on the East coast is the best 90RON
Caltex is the best Diesel
However in WAWA land, Shell is meant to be the best 98RON.

Re: Which Octane

I've only used Caltex and it's running well. Averaging 10.4/100 city driving. When I hit the freeway it drops to the 9's. Soooo much better than my V6 Prado 120 which was 17/100 anywhere!
