Super Unleaded

Post by Trainer22 » Wed Sep 11, 2019 8:05 pm

Got my new Dynamic Hybrid Lease Car yesterday. Does anybody use Super Unleaded in your hybrid, and have you noticed any improvement?
Or should I stick to normal petrol?

FYI - I have tried super unleaded but it doesnt make any difference to power or petrol consumption.

I now stick to regular Tesco or Asda petrol as this works well...

I am not sure on this one. I normally use Asda, but I occasionally put 97 octane in (every 6 mths or so). I find it gives a quieter ride and sometimes the mpg seems better, but not always.
All the best

Normal is fine on these cars, waste of money to add something else.

I just use ordinary unleaded, get very good mpg with it. I can think that with super unleaded it may have something in it rather like Red X but why pay a lot more as it is nearer to the price of diesel?

I am saving quite a bit of money after ditching my diesel Nissan Qashqai for the C-HR not only on mpg but also sticking to using regular unleaded I am saving money at the pumps.

Nigel.

I've always used shell v power for yrs now. In my saab before chr and use in my gsxr 1100. So cost is normal to me. In fact the difference between the saab doing 20mpg. And the chr around 55 to 65 mpg. I'm actually saving. Lol. But I know that the v power has 30% more cleaning additives than normal shell unleaded. And for the extra fiver a month. I'll keep using it.

Feel free, but thats a bit like continuing to drink Evian instead of Spa, since you are used to it.... I had to use super premium stuff in my previous car (a tuned/fettled/ modified GT86) but that was because it was remapped to use 98 octane only. It would have issues with detonation on 95 octane.

if super unleaded is 98, then yes. I use nothing but that. I feel like I noticed a huge increase in MPG, but I am told that is likely not true that it had helped as much as I thought.

I filled with 95 once and I was getting around 50MPG. Once I started using 98 I am getting closer to 62. I have not stopped putting 98 since.

Interesting thread this. After more than 2.5 years of using 95 unleaded, I have gone over to 97 super unleaded. Mostly both grades bought from Sainsburys. SUL is 6p per litre more expensive, so approx 27p per gallon. So at 60mpg that is costing me an extra 0.5p per mile.

Any increase in MPG? Well I am doing a non-scientific experiment, which is ongoing. Last four fill ups on unleaded 95 revealed 58.7, 59.7, 57.7, 58.8 mpg.

Last three fill ups on super 97 reveal 64.7, 64.1 and 63.0 mpg.

Tank is brimmed each time I fill up, and the test has taken place since April. Journeys undertaken have been very routine, and of the type undertaken using unleaded 95. I have ignored the computer readings from the car, other than the mileage travelled.

If my non-scientific experiment tells me anything then, at the moment, I might be saving a little bit of money using super. It is enough to make me want to continue with the experiment for a little longer until the weather changes and it gets cold.

Make of that what you will.
