I have been using BP Speed + System G for the last 11 months. But I noticed a slight knocking at very high revs in my Zen Vxi (2006). Recently I stopped adding System G to BP Speed and the knocking is gone.

Can anyone confirm if it is OK to add System G to premium petrol? Does System G alter the combustion properties of the petrol or it just prevents gumming?

I use normal petrol from either IOC or BP,Because only imported or new generation cars needed to be filled with higher octane petrol.

I do fill x tra premium but i have a strange experience to share with you. I have filled my tanks few times. When i first tried to find fe with premium it was 12.5 and next time i tried to find it using normal ioc petrol i got 14.5. I am using an adventure( euro iii) , there was no difference in performance when switched to normal ioc.

I use BP speed everytime i tank up with 40 ml of System G in my Palio S10. Surprising, i found that the car starts to rev till 1500 rpm on idle while using IOC premium.

I usually fill in IOC regular with required amount of Iftex System G.

But i try as much to fill in Shell fuel but sometimes it's not worth travelling 12kms just for fuel alone.

Used to fill in BP regular (from pure for sure bunks only) but i get more mileage from IOC regular. Too bad i fell for that Pure4Sure sign.

Whether your car manual asks you to use 87 octane or 91 octane, mine asks 91 octane as it is euro 3

Use speed 97 oct + performance in a bottle Octane boosters .. Cars runs close to 102-103 Oct fuel which works out to 70+ bucks to a litre ..
