Anyone in Perth know of a place where they sell it, as i had not heard of it till just now.

I remember when premium first came out and for a while was only available at 4 servo's. Now it's everywhere, except the very small servo's.

I have some information not mentioned..

They are looking at making a ethanol regular unleaded as well, no prices set as of yet.

In Canada they have been doing this for years, one of the benifits is its stops freezing in the fuel lines in very cold enviroments.. You don't need to add a antifreeze agent to your fuel tank which makes it convient.

In the US legislation allowed ethanoled fuels to get higher octane..

How long till 100 ron becomes avalible?
