Question Which fuel do you use???

Hi,

I always wanted to know the most used fuel. I always used IOC eXtraMile diesel when I had Indica. Now, with Palio I am using IOC premium and occasionallySpeed.


Would like to know what others use?

i use indian oil premium for my optra. i also add system g as recommended by gm and there is a marked difference in performance. indian oil premium is a lil more expensive than power and speed but it contains friction busters so is better.

You missed Shell, Reliance and Essar.
HP's premium diesel is TurboJet

I use BP Speed only from two specific bunks, one in Pune and one in Mumbai. I can feel a slight increase in pick-up and top speed when I use Speed from these bunks versus normal petrol. Don't know if this psychological.

Still trying out options in this car - was a regular user of BP Speed earlier.
Now , IOC XtraPremium for a few months, then moved to Power and now HP Normal + System G.
Don't see/feel any noticeable difference in FE/Mileage. Maybe I will if I go back to XtraPremium.

I used BP normal for Omni and Santro. For Swift BP speed and after words Shell Premium Petrol. Now for Innova started with Shell Normal as suggested by Toyota (91 octane normal petrol) and now using BP speed (93 octane) and noticed less noice and almost 1km extra FE with BP Speed Petrol.

But according to me FE won't increase if we use high octane Petrol anyway I will continue using BP speed 93 octane Petrol.

Regards,

Ravi.

Shell regular- nothing else; not even once. I'm surprised Shell/Reliance isnt in the list.
