Default Which fuel and how much?

hi just wondering what fuel everyone is using and how much it costs in your area?
I've just started to use V-power by Shell (99 RON) and have not really seen a marked improvment from optimax
Price has gone up though
currently paying £1.04 a litre which is about $1.96 per litre.
About $8 a US gallon!

gas really dosent matter unless your car is more than 10 yrs old

just use the cheapest but if you start seeing a loss in performance get the best again

Over here (Ohio) it pretty much fluxuates from 2.70 to 3.00. USD
BTW your car looks a lot like the new Nissan Versa they have in the states now.

It is best to use the lowest possible octane, without pinging.

Nissan Versa? This thing actually looks somwhat attractive. Not the Versa.

I'm just put 20 gallons into my tank, and only paid $2.15 per gallon!!! (I go to Pilot, and get the cheapest stuff).
