i run my r32 gtr on v power, but if i needed fuel and could not find a shell station what is the alternative.
i was told that optimax now v power is a must and nothing else should be used, but what was used before shells super fuel?.,,,.,

If you cant find a garage that sells decent fuel, take a couple of bottles of octane booster with you.. at least if you have to put 95 RON in, you can perk it up a bit :)

Just Super Unleaded, some people use octane boost aswell just to be safe when they are doing hard driving, trackdays etc.

Any good performance centre, Millers is the best (IMO) its about a fiver a bottle, which will do for a full tank.

I get mine from Graham Goode ..... if you buy in bulk (10 bottles) it works out around £26 for the 10 IIRC.

What brand is that, and how many 'RON' points?

I know with Millers.. if you add two bottles to a full tank, you are easily over 100 RON

Millers... 'Octane Boost' 1 bottle gives 2 points on 40 litres:)
