I use Shell Normal (This is a 91 Octane petrol) for both my car and bike.
Plan to check out Super Shell in my car sometime soon.

I have been a very loyal customer at ClubHP for Power in Esteem and TurboJet in my Indica.. Before that as well I was using normal unleaded petrol for my Yezdi [2T Mix manually], Bullet and my Old Zen from Club HP only.

I think that depends on the car. If the manufacturer recommends high octane fuel, you probably will get a noticeable improvement in mileage using high-octane fuel. Even otherwise, I have read that high-octane fuel is denser by about 2%, so you should be able to get at least that much improvement in any modern mpfi car.

I filled HP power for 2 years in my lancer. Then once I tried regular unleaded with the recommended mix of System G.

Honestly, I found the car smoother and more responsive. Maybe the System G cleaned something out. But now I use regular fuel, and once every month i fill up with regular fuel and system G.

But for what it's worth I always fill at a Club HP. Achcha lagta hai.

Have been getting excellent results after I switched to Normal Petrol from Shel. It's been close to 4 months now and economy results have been rock consistent. City 16/highway 23+ in my 5 Speed 800. Thank you T-BHP.
