I agree with this, I pumped Caltex/Shell/Petronas all doesn't feel any different. Now when petrol need refill, I just pump at the nearest station regardless brand

BHP none near my area, cannot test

nice review... at first i don feel much difference too.... I guess theres so many factors that can effect fuel..

but thesedays, i think my engine noise reduced.

responsiveness = yes just a bit more pick up

Don't bother clean with petrol

Just go to some specialised car shops which offer carbon clean. One shot do it.

Then. Never ever use fkin euro 2 Petronas petron n shell ever again until all of em buck up and run euro 4.stick to bhp and caltex

BHP and Caltex are Euro 2 fuels too. Perhaps, use only Ron 97 for now?

tried it on my old persona, maintain 100 at 2500rpm (70%, highway, 30% town) , able to get 5.3l / 100km. seems not bad . IMO it's better than caltex and bhp. just my opinion icon_rolleyes.gif

Please share proof please?

if you can help measure the vibrations or improved acceleration times.

Efficiency is probably the easiest to record

Just wondering, what engine oil you using?

Can help share what you mean by not right? Vibrations? Difficult to rev up? Car feels heavy when accelerating?

TQ

Sure, i'm driving Suprima S. Mileage currently is at 7777. Just done first service on proton SC using Petronas fully synthetic oil.
Because Suprima S is a turbo charged car, whenever i use BHP. The power is always there, pick up is great. car is smooth.

Then one day i go and try Petronas for 2 full tanks consecutively, my car feel heavy when accelerating. Mileage is no great, my car will jerking ( chock xia chock xia ) , and engine sound rough. Immediately i stop petronas and go back to BHP.
