Petrol Octane

A question for you clever bods out there, is there any benefit to  the 950 on Super unleaded against just unleaded  I have found on average its approx 8p per litre more in price but if it increases MPG and cleans the internals am happy with that......... :440:

I've not experimented with my Multi but in my Audi S4 car I have found super unleaded is a worthwhile investment in terms of increased mpg which is useful because the car is a raving dipsomaniac if one uses the power available  :008: so every little helps.

I did some calculations a while ago when I had a BMW bike but I think the same will hold true for the Multi. The extra cost of super unleaded is only partially offset by the decreased fuel consumption. I think it works out to around 4 pence per litre extra cost. However the improved response from the engine is almost as good as going from Urban to Touring. I always use super when I can get it and never the higher ethanol content fuel which are awful  :151: you wouldn't feed a thoroughbred from a slops bucket  :033:
Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

My dealer suggested it would be best when I purchased mine.
