Excellent

Invaluable when used with a performance car

Pricier ... but that's why I use AA petrol watch!

INTRODUCTION Well, Perhaps we've seen these kinds of 'performance' fuels before ... haven't we!?!! For those of you who match or exceed my 36 years of age - you'll no doubt remember when Shell in the mid 1980s produced the 'Formula Shell' product which, if my memory serves me right had some kind...

I started driving back in 1999 when I purchased a Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.4 to commute to Telford and as the Shell station on the Tettenhall Rd, Wolverhampton and filled it with Shell Regular Unleaded-nothing unusual about that. Well it was about that time, I started to notice a premium grade of...

“ Optimax? You decide.....”

Shell get much richer !!!!

I get much poorer !!!

INTRODUCTION ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I had always been curious to see if this stuff could make me drive like Michael Schumacher and I read a review on Shells Optimax Petrol and was so convinced that I decided to take the challenge (I can hear the formula 1 music in the background). I have tested it over...

“MAX YOUR CAR”

Gives more power, smoother drive.

Price premium, availability.

I think this may be a first for Ciao, but please correct me if I’m wrong! Anyway, I first heard of this product through the member’s club for the car I drive. (MCC Smart) A lot of members were debating the use of Shell Optimax, and by and large the comments were pertaining to the positive end of...

None if you dont mind paying a little extra

In the UK we currently already pay extorniate prices for our petrol so why would i recommend paying even more for what some believe to be nothing more than just advertising hype? Well, i can only speak from my own experiences in regards to Shells Optimax unleaded but for me paying the extra 4p a...

“Optimax Petrol.”

published 28/03/2003

Will make a marked improvement on your car.

Won't happen overnight. More expensive.

Optimax petrol is very good. It does make your car more responsive . To put my theory to the test, I ran my car on Optimax for 1 year the changed back to regular 95 RON petrol. My car became more sluggish and the MPG came down significantly. From 380 per tank (about 50 litres) to 280. So, the...

“Shell Optimax Petrol”

Cleaner full better for car

costs more

Shells optimax petrol is better than the cheaper petrol’s that are on offer in a few ways. These ways are as follows; 1) The petrol will make your car more responsive. This is especially good whilst driving in rush hour traffic. Or can be great fun on country roads. 2) The petrol burns cleaner...

Fuel Economy, Overall Engine Performance

Estra Cost over standard unleaded

I have recently bought the new Honda Civic 2006 (1.8 SE I-Vtec). Since march the first I have filled up the tank about 4 times (using standard unleaded - mostly from Sainsbury's!!!) My father in law suggested trying out Optimax when I next fill up (he drives a BMW 320 SE). The main reason was to...

Not for me

Expensive

I over a period of two months used Shell Optimax on my previous car which I had since brand new - my 307 1.6 Raiper. Over these two months I travelled around 4000 miles, and while using Shell Optimax, my Peugeot actually consumed more Petrol, I travel 50 miles into work and 50 mils back - over...

None that come to mind

Until I used Shell optimax, I gave little thought to the petrol I put in my car. I would usually be swayed by supermarket brands where I could earn points. However, having used Optimax for about 2 months, the results are impressive. Each time I visit the pump the amount of petrol I have to put in...

“Optimax or Optimin????”

published 05/04/2004

smoother engine & more power for some

..but not all, cost.

I used to own a Peugeot 106 Rallye a few years back, that had a rally tuned 1300 engine that would hit 100bhp @ 7500rpm. Now on the filler cap it stated '98 RON ONLY' which was 'super unleaded' which in turn was rather more than your ordinary 95 RON unleaded. I wanted to know why exactly it...

I have been using shell optimax now for around fourteen months now. Initially i only started to use it because my cars engine was one that was particuarly subseptable to cokeing up made worse still by low grade fuel. Octane boosters and engine additives were first on the list but there frequent...
