I was running premium in my ED for a couple of months and noticed no difference to performance or economy. Mum used the car one day and filled it up with normal unleaded. I didn't know that at the time. But as soon as I drove it, the response was incredible!

Now I get fuel from Mobil/BP who seem to have the best fuel for my car.

I have only really used premium for long trips at higher speed, gives everything a bit of a clean, and you do notice the economy difference, but otherwise around town I have found no real gains, in fact I feel the same that it just costs more, unless ya planting ya foot at every set of lights, use normal around town and premium for touring.

My 2 cents.


I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

since the price of petrol is back down lower i've been thinking of running some premium (a few tanks) just to give it a clean out
