Hi all,

Was just wondering what you lot thought of Shell's Optimax fuel.

I've been using sainsbury's fuel for ages and I thought I'd give Optimax a try cos my mate uses it in his Mk2 and he swears by it.

I thought it was just some advertising ploy but to be honest I have actually noticed the difference. Car seems quicker mid-range and a lot faster coming out of corners in third.

Any thoughts?

Mate, Im with you on that.
Ive noticed a difference in my MK3 GTi and yes, it certainly puts a bit more Ooomph into the mid-range.

Ive been using it for over a year now. Its alot more pricey than conventional super unleaded, but worth it, dont you think.


p.s If youre gonna use it in the long run, and frequently,  start collecting the points too. I do.
