I have always used Shell V-Power (Optimax etc) in every performance car and all my bikes for years - and Evolve ran some tests on different fuels and Shell came out top every time. On the dyno's there was a distinct difference between cars run on V-Power as opposed to normal unleaded etc. It is getting bloody expensive again though. Filled up my new DCT M3 today and it was 116.9 - rip off!!!!

Always use BP Ultimate - it is 97RON so a little less than Vpower but the garage is on my route to work, and always empty- Shell is a few miles off route and you always have to queue for the few Vpower pumps they have

You also get Nectar points at BP which pleases the missus

bmwbailey 116.9 ... ouch!

BP have the Ultimate 102 at selected outlets in the country ... but at 2.42 per litre ... I think they are having a laugh!

I am using the BP Ultimate 97 RON. Must try some of that Shell V-Power!

Shell V-power for me aswell.

Can be difficult tracking down a shell station whilst on the motorways.

I doubt there is much in it between BP and Shell - but i do my upmost to drive to a Shell garage because ive seen the test results Evolve did and how Shell V-Power came top of the league everytime and gave the biggest gains in power etc. I certainly wouldnt pay 2.42 for the BP 102 - thats just insane!!!
