I have a vRS and I have tried both Speed and Speed97. I found Speed97 better - car runs much smoother, goes like a jack-rabbit when I boot it and gives me more mileage. With Speed, I used to average 11-11.25kms per litre with Speed97 I get almost 12 (NORMAL driving - no redlining). I have clocked 18k kms using Speed97 without any problems. Ofcourse, in Delhi, its available @Rs.55/litre.

I agree about the additives though. DCIL has strictly advised to use only regular diesel in my C220.

So if the price doesnt hurt ur pocket then please feel free to use 97..


Pure petrol (gasoline) cannot meet even the basic octane requirements... all petrols have additives.... The higher the octane rating, the higher the amount of additives... There is no such thing as Pure 97octane...

Hello Everybody,
Being a petrol pump owner,I will let out a sceret.The "speed" that Bharat petroleum sells is actually 93 octane!!!

Now for the perfomance for a RS....i will strongly recomend 97.U can feel the difference on a hot afternoon,if u use 91 to 97.

Hope I have cleared a lot of bugs in our motorsport brains!

Karan
