Am I wasting my money using super unleaded fuel?

I have three cars - 2011 Mazda MX5 Roadster 2.0-litre, 2011 Mazda 2 TS2 1.35-litre and 2016 Skoda Yeti 1.2 TSI SEL. I am using Shell V-POWER U/L in all of these. Is this okay or am I wasting my money?

Very okay. You will be getting better performance: more torque at low rpm and will be keeping your fuel systems and valves clean. Stay with it.

Unique styling. Solid build. Excellent petrol engines including frugal yet peppy 1.2 TSI. Good space in the back. Frugal 1.6 TDI Greenline can return 60mpg+. Much loved model.
Enjoyable and fun to drive. Economical engines. Sensibly priced. Feels well built. Ride harshness over bumps improved for 2011.
Electrically folding hard top version of the MX-5. Just as good to drive as the standard fabric roof model. Top build quality.
