    They do run run RON

    Guys i have not owned a petrol for many years so now squat about petrol and Ron levels or what ever they are. I was just reading that Merc recommend super unleaded with a minimum of 98 RON. The V8 can be run periodically on a lesser Ron unleaded (so they say) but a superior fuel must be used! I...

    The 98/95 Ron Question- dare I ask it???

    I just trawled through various threads looking for info on this but didn't find what I was looking for. I do a fair bit of travelling some weeks and don't have time to seek out or detour past the nearest Shell or super unleaded friendly petrol station but if I need to carry octane booster so be...

    Just wanted to know if the 55k AMG engines run ok on the 95RON petrol or do you have to use 97RON or the 99RON that tesco's claim they have. What do you guys put in your beloved babies?

    98 or 97 ron petrol?

    My car's manual says I should use no less than 98ron petrol. Occasional 95 is permitted but only as a necessity. With Sainsburys 97ron petrol now costing £1.28 (with the voucher) compared to Shells £1.42 for V power 99ron it is extremely tempting to fill up with the Sainsburys fuel. Is...

    Petrol - RON values on the pumps

    Greetings, citizens. Filled up tonight at the local Shell station, which was recently refurbished. Probably the second/third time I've done so. However, I noticed this time there's no RON numbers on the pump labels - fairly sure that before regular was labelled as 95 and V-power as 98. I...

    What do you put in your C32?

    I've seen a couple of threads talking about using super vs. plain unleaded, but apart from the odd "me too" from a C32 owner, no definitive comment on whether it makes much difference. Is the ECU tuned for super or plain? Does it auto-sense? Does it a) feel better or b) get better economy from...

    Fuel RON

    Hi, The user manual for my S500 yr2000 says to use Unleaded RON 95. Is that standard unleaded, or premium ie BP Ultimate etc.. Seem to get conflicting info on the web some say standard unleaded is 91 RON others state 95. Thanks

    95 ron or 99 ron?

    I currently put 99 ron in the tank at the moment, but would it harm the car to put in 95 ron? The car is a C43. Some cars can adjust the ecu to accommodate the different ron and wondered if can adjust like some cars can do.

    Tesco's 99 Ron fuel...............

    Is anyone else using Tescos limited availability Superunleaded fuel? My first are impressions are that it is as good as Shell Optimax but much cheaper. In my 4 pot it has the effect of making the car run for smoothly (although my car was tuned to run on Optimax when I had it Superchipped)...
