I've always pumped BP Ultimate 98 from the time I bought the car until Shell Introduced their V-Power in WA. My consumption has gone up from 14.7l/100 to 15, now that's city only driving. I haven't changed my driving style.

Also I noticed the exhaust note from the /// Performance exhaust is a lot sportier and sounds mean - a true V8 - when using Shell. I don't know whether it's just me.

I don't know how the two compare in terms of quality, performance and economy.
