What Petrol do you put into your Falcon?

Last month I trailed Shell Optimax and got 460, 480 and 500K's per 60L tank each week. Before it, I was on around 420-440 max on normal stuff. Pretty big difference.

Also tried Caltex Vortex before Optimax, and it was SHIT. Car took 3-4 seconds to ignite on every startup and was only around 400K per 60L tank.

Whats everyone else use?

My baby is an AU2 Forte Auto...

Heya,

Done 12,000 Kms and the only fuel I hae used is BP Ultimate. Have no excuses or complaints. She doesnt ping with it either!

Only thing that really sucks is the price...$1.13 litre today :o(
