Hey Guys / Gals
Just had my dealer confirm all is well for 23rd march !
My question is for petrol heads only -Which unleaded type are you using?
I thinkim going to go with the super unleaded even though there is a price premium to pay per litre.What i have noticed in my current car is it really does feel more responsive anddoesseem to go that bit further in MPG.As any of you tried a comparison between the two in your Jukes ?
Thanks

I'm not so much the petrol head, but I really don't think your engine is going to get anything out of a higher octane fuel.

I'd spend the money on doing a few extra miles if I were you. Petrol's expensive enough as it is.Edited by: Wraithen

I found this too. I used to run my TT on 98ron fuel and when I couldn't get it and had to run with 95 you noticed the difference. I bet if you look in your Manual if it states preferred choice or tests done using 97 ron/95 ron fuel.

Hi,

I’m using normal unleaded on my DiG-T. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />
Going slightly off topic – We’ve used V Power diesel for a few years on our Qashqai 1.5 dCI and my previous Fabia vRS TDI. The main reason for this is because it is a cleaner fuel – helps keep expensive injectors, fuel pump and turbo cleaner. There are slight power gains although you may not notice any difference. IMO the engine is more responsive and runs smoother.
5<SUP>th</SUP> Gear did a test on this.

Use a good make 95 .if you re map the ECM let them know your going to user super.
Re map is about £600. Extra 15 HP.
Don't tell the dealer.

I use the super every third tank, was under the impression that the additives were better for the engine in the super. ??

Yesthat'swhat ive been told too.
But I have really noticed a difference with my old car - its only a clio 2002 1.4 16v sport, Running with the premium fuel.
Is there anything in the handbook / recommend, i would have thought they too will say 95, but it would be good to compare the two in our jukes.I shallcertainlytry when i get mine.

I cannot speak for my Juke yet, I haven´t got it but I did once inadvertantly fill up my RAV4 with 95 octane. BOY! did I notice the difference and that´s on a 2 litre engine!! Slower acceleration, pinking and a very slightly rougher idle.So, without a second´s thought, my Juke will be on 98 octane for all its life.

We've filled ours up with the 95 super unleaded as suggested on the inside of the fuel tank door

Ok, so Pogo has been running on Tesco Momentum99 for a day or so.
Have to say the engine sounds 'smoother' Trouble is, now I think I've spoiled the little blighter.
Drives like a new car Hang on a minute, it IS a new car!

I never use supermarket fuel, in the past have noticed a difference in performance and mpg between the two.

Around my way Shell are the same price as supermarket apart from Asda!

I've never even considered putting super unleaded in mine but I might give it a go just out of interest and see if I feel any difference in performance. I do avoid supermarket fuel if possible because in my previous Fiesta there was a noticeable drop in performance when I used it.

I've only ever used normal unleaded fuel but may have to try the Super to see if there is any difference. As for supermarket fuel versus dealership there is seriously hardly any difference nowadays and I always use supermarkets.
