Shell Optimax - Jonathan
< >

I have just filled up with this fuel. My car specs 98 ron preferred, with 95 minimum. I hope that it improves the performance and economy.

I asked the attendant and he said that the fuel is the same as the old stuff, but improved. i.e. it doesn't melt your engine (hopefully).

Fingers crossed

I wish you good luck, please let me know how you get on. But did you see the post after mine by Ash Philips?

Please, guys, stop starting a new thread about the same thing as a current thread. The more you do this, the more you crowd the list of threads and consign quite recent ones to oblivion in the archives.

Re: Shell Optimax - Jonathan

The thread I referred to is at least 8 pages back, if it was just 2 or 3 then I would have added to that one instead. I didnt think many people read that far back.

when i was in new zealand a few years back they introduced a new petrol which started eating into the petrol pipes and causing engine fires - big national problem

all traced back to the refinery

so making petrol isnt as easy as it looks eh?

I have seen other forums where the list of threads is displayed in the order of the last post date. That way a thread stays on the list as long as people are posting to it. If Phorum supports this type of functionality then it may solve this type of problem.

Ignore me...I've just seen the other thread.
Any use for older engines? - Miller
I have a Citoen ZX with the old but well proven 1360cc 75bhp 8 valve engine. Would this new petrol give me any increased performance/economy benefits, or is it just designed for newer 16 valve engines?
