Okay i know this question has been asked enough, but what fuel are well all putting in our commodores atm? that includes lubes etc.

I've been putting half 95 ron and half e10 per tank, with nylon lead replacemnt in my tank which works out good. :)

Pings a bit with straight e10 "10% ethanol"

I've noticed the bp 98 unlimate octane is about... would this be better then 95?

(said while chewin' grass and playin' the banjo...)I'm out the countryside, so we still only got 91 and 96. But any time we go to the big city we's put the 98 in and it gives the jalopy a gooood 'ol kick in the pants!

Mainly gas, but normal unleaded. My car doesn't need higher octane fuel. If your car doesn't need it, don't bother burning your money!

Well i put half a tank of 95 ron in today 20 dollars worth and it seems to last that extra step unlike the straight e10 in the tank, gave me half a tank which is cool :)

I always fill up before the red mark.

95 Ron Test + Nylon Lead Replacement** Goon's VC 202.


I drove around about 15 - 20k at 70km on a certain 100k road and it didnt move at all.

I then drove up a steap hill it dropped 1 inch on the meter.

Drove again on the same road i drove 70k on, this time doing 100k on the same track at a crusing pass it moved atleast 1 inch and abit.

I then tested 0 -100k over 100m at 25 eco "3/4 foot" , that moved 1 ich for sure or a bit more.

I'm keen to do the test with the 98 ron this week, then redo a tank with half e10

Thanks, just something to look at :thumbsup:

I think it all depends on whether or not your car is a high compression engine or needs it for another reason. In my car for example running on lpg which is a high octane fuel, I could use any petrol on the market but I would probably burning a hole in my pocket if I opted for premium. On the other hand where my cousin has a high compression 351, he needs the highest petrol octane (apprently) like BP otherwise it pings. Still does ping though!
