nothing right or wrong, just "mentally" or "in fact" it is more powerful.
For me, i tried and feel that it is more powerful when i pump Ron 97 ~ and mine is a weekend car, so, still affordable at this juncture, within monthly budget for fuel. + cleaning fuel burn, i read from an article, which leads to some sort engine protection.

Just my belief, so dont shoot me notworthy.gif notworthy.gif

No shoot lah...just wonder as I thought you pump it as daily use. 97 is alright since it's a weekend car, what's your favourite petrol brand? Many ppl of lowyat net suggest bhp biggrin.gif

I'm using petronas as well, (95). It gives me better fc.
Actually I feel the 97 (pumped it few times before) gives better vroommm vroommm feeling, but it's costly for me to pump it as daily use sweat.gif

Hi all sifus here ~ i just changed the myvi stock exhaust to cat back from Supercircuit ~ just wondering, is such change increases the fuel consumption ? lots ?  blink.gif  any ideas ? but, yeah, i realize it might be hurting, just wondering how significant it is going to be.

im still trying my first full tank ron 97 (pump stopped automatically), just wanna prepare myself mentally, if worsens, might consider sell it though ~  sweat.gif  sweat.gif

if you wanna know the truth,do a blind test;
when your tank is nearly empty next time.ask one of your friend to help you pump the car to full but not revealing about whether its 95 or 97,after you drove it a while and had a mental guess of yourself. only then ask your friend to reveal the fuel he put in ,try a few time to cancel out lucky guess,and be honest with yourself,avoid Stockholm syndrome
i did this challenge to so many of my friends who insist they really felt ron97 was better,once do blind test,they can't felt any different and admiting just tembak at guessing at last,the different if any,was minuscule
don't waste your money on placebo effect

First they have to have the basic knowledge of y the different RONs. It's just to prevent knocking in higher compression cars. Goddamn it's not rocket fuel.

many people rather choose to just believe than to understand the actual mechanism
