The additives keep the critical fuel system parts clean, here an ounce of prevention will save you good money in long run, not to mention a clean fuel system means optimum performance and mileage and long life for your engine.

well my experience with these higher octane fuels has been good.especially in high compression engines.

For instance.when used in palio 1.6, the engine is more smoother,more powerful and getting better fuel efficiency too!

With 91 octane fuel, fuel efficiency goes up by 1-1.3 kms on palio!

You have to check this one out. EuroIII is mandatory in most mini-metros as well. In other areas please check since it is possible that the petrol firm may be supplying EuroIII only, not bothering to stock EuroII any more. Reliance may even be EuroIV.

Hi Priya,

 

here is the simple theory behind octane numbers --

"Petrol's octane rating is a measurement of the fuel's ability to resist engine knocking. Knock occurs when the fuel-air mix in the cylinder explodes instead of burning in a controlled way. This shockwave moves within the combustion chamber, and creates a metallic 'pinging' sound.
Thus an octane rating is often referred to as an 'anti-knock index'. If fuel has a high octane number, it will have a higher resistance to engine knocking."

So to answer your question, it won impact engine if you upgrade and start using high octane petrol... only point i wld suggest is make sure you are almost empty when change fuel octane...

 

Cheers,

Mixing lower and higher octane fuels will only result in an intermediate figure. Remember most pumps abroad with octane selection (more common in the leaded days) simply mixed the lowest and highest octane fuel to deliver the requisite octane level. Also, modern engines often have an knock-sensor and will happily run on a lower octane, with a corresponding compromise on performance.

With 97ON costing a fortune more than 91ON as long as your engine does not complain you should be able to get away with 91ON in most normal cars.

Using lower octane fuel in high performance engines specially during summer will make the knock sensors in those retard the timing thereby reducing your performance, so its always a good idea to go higher on RON except that only modded cars can take full advantage of 97ON, 91-93 is fine for regular cars.
