Hi David,

So, to drag up this old thread, do you use 91 or 95 from your main gas station?
There are some stations in the North Island that get their fuel from Singapore - it is MUCH better quality - their 91 is often a 92 octane and their 95 regularly comes back at 96+. None of these in the South Island
All the main oil companies here use the same fuel with their additives in to get to the 'correct' octane. I use 95 as I reckon the 91 is lawnmower fuel at best. I reckon 98 is a bit of overkill for these engines- or is it? It does have 10c/litre premium here!!

Have a day

Oliver

I use 91 from a 'good' servo. I get almost immeasurable improvement on 95 and same again on 98, no where near enough to cover the increase in cost. However dropping to e10 which is another 2c a litre cheaper nets significantly worse economy far outwaying the cost difference. So 91 at a good servo or 95 at a poor one and never e10!

I use 98 and consistently get in the mid 9s for the work commute and early 10s on the weekend due to the increased short journeys etc. The info I get is the higher the octane, the hotter the burn, the less residual, which is better for the engine in the long term. For that reason alone I justify to myself using the higher octane (rightly or wrongly). The thing goes like a scorched cat as well, but that may also be the case with the lower octanes.

Mine reads low 10's for the mostly highway work commute, but thats with 3.5% larger tyres so realisticly that drops to high 9's, plus the lift and roof racks and the fact that I dont always drive like a granpa...

I've been using 95 from Woolworths Caltex & 98 from 711 for about 6 months. I've been averaging 11.5 L/100KM is this normal ?

Also, today I filled up with 91 from Woolworths Caltex and I found that it works just as well as the above fuels.
The manual says 91 - 93 RON so i will probably start saving money and use the 91 RON from now onwards.

Anyone else using 91RON and found any issues or noticeable differences from 95 or 98 ?

I don't do any towing or anything like that, but in that case it may be true that 95 / 98 will be better

So far the only difference I have found is it costs me more.. The local servo near me though has 95 at around 2 to 4 c/L cheaper than 91 as it's e10. I get significant less economy on this 95 e/10, a lot more than the 2 to 4c saving.

So after trialling each for a few tanks I found the biggest difference was the hit that e10 gave economy. The others made barely any difference to economy or performance, but a huge difference to cost.

That's quite strange, usually, the lowest RON fuel is the one which is blended with the ethanol.
Any fuel with an ethanol blend.. I do not even consider.
Cool, so yeah I think RON 91 is the best fuel performance/cost wise.
