So BSR tell me that I can run stage one and two on 97 RON fuel it will cost 5 -10 % in performance though.

They also go on to say that they recomend 98 RON for stage 3.

After seeing some peoples problems with the motors with stage one and three, and fingers pointing to low RON fuel numbers, I'm trying to find who has what fuel.

Here in the UK...
Esso have super unleaded but its 97 RON
BP Ultimate is 97 RON

I can't seem to find what rating of Shell Optimax fuel is.

Anyone know? I do notice a slight difference with my standard Aero running super unleaded. Bet economy too, which cancells out the extra cost....

Bit worried as to long term effects of running 97 RON on stage 3 as I can't seem to find 98 RON

thoughts anyone?
