I found quite a bit of difference when I started filling up 97 for my 1.4 Fiesta. Try it guys & if you have a good feel for cars then you will notice the difference.
But I don't tank this up often...only once in 3 months & then keep filling 91/93 octane just when at half tank.

Try a 0-100 run. Your car will probably be slower than with regular fuel.

kbk, speak to Milind Deora. He is an MP from your area or thereabouts, and his dad's the petroleum minister. Should be some help.

Yes, I am planning on doing exactly that, which is why I wanted some details on the dates and price hikes.

You don't need it with a stock RS.

In west Delhi you can get it at R N Motors, peera garhi chowk.

Lot's of Bharat Petroleum Pumps. A few I can recall off hand:

1. Pump on Race Course road opposite PM's residence.
2. Pump opposite Andrews Ganj/GK - I (Ex Shell Pump)
3. Pump on Mathura Road before Ashram (when coming from Faridabad)
4. Pump opposite Park Royal/Intercontinental Eros Hotel at Nehru Place

Thanks..maybe I will try it out

I did some searching & found an interesting discussion on;
High Octane Fuel vs. Low Octane Fuel : Facts and Myths - IH8MUD Forums

Also a PDF highlighting the facts & myths of high octane fuel.

The Low-Down on High Octane Gasoline

So Speed 97 is now Rs. 66/- a litre. Talk about arbitrary pricing. The price of Speed97 stays high while oil falls to 30% of it's peak value, then they reduce the price 5.7% when oil goes back up 50%. Brilliant. Not that I'm complaining (now that the price has FINALLY been reduced a little), but it still boggles the mind!

97 RON is only good when you have a high compression european engine. Indian or american cars are tuned to run optimum at 85-87 RON
