Thank you for the feedback. My little research also suggests that Shell V-Power 98 is better than Vortex 98.

Just curious, how do you know which fuel is better for your car? Mileage? Or do you feel the difference while driving?
I prefer V-Power over Vortex.

For me the difference is economy, push back in seat performance, and also listening to the engine n which i can hear purr nicer. lol

I ran Ultimate for a while after it being recommended left right and centre in my Clubsport and found that the V-Power was better, I have filled with Caltex once and didn't notice a difference. All from very high volume servos. In all honesty I don't think there are any great differences between them.
So put a full tank of the V power in yesterday. Only thing I've noticed is the clubby has chewed into it a little quicker than the ultimate. Very strange. Power wise I haven't noticed anything unlike what I did with the vortex. Is it best to run a few tanks and then judge the V-Power or?

tbh it's that long since I switched that I don't recall economy just power delivery.

Hmm I'll give it a couple of tanks since she was saying I was on 1/8th of a tank but then fueled up and only managed 60L. She's such a drama queen lol.

Full disclosure I WAS using v-power, I switched TO Ultimate ran it for a few months and was never entirely convinced switched BACK and was happier.

I did the ecu reset thing as well.

Make sure your MAF sensor is clean if you have one as well. Use MAF cleaner from supercrap takes 5 minutes to do.
