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.

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

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.

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!
