Is it? I never did see what colour it was :rofl:
ha! ha! yah! most people don't see because take nozzle plug into petrol tank and fill only.
I have siphoned petrol from one car to another, so have filled them in transparent bottles, so I have seen their color

What Colour is V-Power Racing bro?

slow or fast up to driver bro....BLM also can go fast..need modification la bro...............:driver:
Yes modifications indeed can do better, but handling wise stock, not really good, car will
skid. Cornering too hard will have tyres sounding...:driver:

Many think higher RON means more powerful, in fact layman terms, the higher the RON the slower the ability to burn, that is why high compression engine require higher RON. The knocking is actually denotation, means the fuel burns before compression stroke is complete. This, in the long run will damaged the engine....

What about two stroke engine?

Which one better? Ron95 or Ron97?

What is recommend in your bike manual? As far as I know, depends on the compression ratio too, but on 2 stroke machine I think is low, therefore Ron 95 should do.....my 2 sens on this

To be more accurate, pump full tank and set trip meter to zero, then calculate on next refill....:driver:

U staying around there is it? I think heard u mentioned before u pump there :rofl:

Yes, agree, then only know how much it can last.

The other day I pump Full Tank Shell RON95. As usual, when u pump full, the needle will go
up more than the indicated Max Fuel Level. So roughly, around RM10 - RM15+-

Went up to genting from Kepong. 50.4KM and came down from Genting so Total around 100KM
The fuel needle just drop to the exact Max Fuel Level.

Never knew that my car so good FC. Don't know why cuz previously I just slowly drive up cuz
got passengers and the fuel drop lower than what I achieve now. Maybe got passengers gua...

This time round, I sped up also dont consume much petrol...:driver:

No la, mine single VVT-i use to run V-Power, then RON97 then this car now just drinks RON95.
Pity.

So, like some said, as long as your car just need RON95, no point pumping RON97 which it
burns fuel slower. But If RON97 were to be burn slower, then can have better FC?

Fuel burns slower only, but the amount that goes in is the same. Still all will be burnt....no savings.

hehehe..my 20V drink RON95+octane booster eventhough it requires RON97 but my kapcai which requires only RON92, I juz poured RON97 kua...nothing burden since the tank capacity is juz 6 liter...feels lighter, FC improve a bit (depends on ur hand that hold the throttle la)faster than other uncle's C70 kot ekekeke:ridinghorse:

I m driving a GSR with td05 20G turbo and forged internals.....0.6mm metal gasket....

V Power Racing really does help my car a lot....
But i agree also that for normal cars,if ur engine is running correctly,RON 95 is more than sufficient :-)
