Well that was a heated and interesting read, personally I find my lawnmower runs slightly better on V-Power and get more cuts per gallon on it.

Did we ever find out what this super fuel was that we drive past every day?

In the interests of fairness, I have found if I go for a few days with maybe a quarter of a tank of vpower sitting around and not being driven, the car feels sluggish. Once I fill up it definitely seems to get a bit of a kick.

I find exactly the same. If I need to leave fuel in a car for longer than a few days, I'll use Esso Super+.

I have no logical explanation, but in my head it feels more right to use Esso than BP or Texaco when I'm not using Shell.

What sort of power are you getting out of your mower and has it been mapped at all?

Roughly translated from his words at the end he said the splash of dogs piss works Smoggy so you didn't mix it right

Just got it back off the dyno, made 22 BHP, blade horse power.
Has an intake system, uprated spark plug, flexfuel system for mixing the two stroke and its been lowered.



After the new mods and new vtec cams
