      e10 is crap, the milage is less so will balance out any savings you think you were getting. end result is you use e10 poor grade fuel or use much better fuel for your car… now this costing only works when 98 isnt extortion rates above e10 but i would still reccomend avoiding e10 even if cars are SUPPOSEDLY e10 compatible….

      •  

        Yeap e10 milage is crap, it's 5-10% less efficient than regular ULP so unless it's priced 5-10% cheaper than regular ULP there's economical sense to use e10. Only good argument for e10 is it's a stepping stone towards using complete biofuels and allowing ethanol production to be an economically viable option over growing other crops.

      98RON is good only if your car requires it, including cars that only needs 95RON. But for 5.2c more than 91RON, I think it's not a bad deal.

      E10 isn't as evil has everyone make it, as it's more environmentally friendly due to less petrol content. But for the minor cost saving and poorer fuel economy, I wouldn't even bother.

      •  

        My understanding is that 98 RON should give you better fuel efficiency than 91. How much, I can't be certain. Given that, it may work out better to use 98 when prices are low, rather than refilling at a higher price.

          Only if your car is designed to utilise 98RON.
          It's a bit like getting a Ferrari to drive around town. it goes no faster then a Toyoto in traffic.

          There is a popular myth that higher octane fuel like 98 UPULP will give ordinary cars more performance and better economy. Unless your car has been specifically tuned to run solely on 98RON UPULP this is simply not true, and any gains in efficiency would come from the improved cleaning ability of 98 removing built-up gunk inside your engine that was already hurting your fuel economy.

          My mechcanic told me I need to use 98 a bit more, because the detergents in it will help clean my filthy spark plugs. Said it'll burn cleaner, but won't give too much more in the way of better mileage.

          Thanks to 7-11 I've mostly filled up with 98 in the past 9mths and I noticed that the car has better accelleration (especially when towing), we get minimal better fuel economy (5-10% maybe).

          That's all unscientific antedotal evidence (which is what most of fuel claims are - from which is the best brand, to higher octane is better).

          I hope that helps

          I worked it out to be 5-15% at highway speeds, but if most of your driving is city, stop start driving there's no point going for the premium fuels just for the economy.

      Unless your car requires premium fuel (95RON or 98RON), you're just wasting your money filling it in with premium fuel, although no harm is going to be done.

      However, if your car requires premium fuel, and you fill it up with a cheaper fuel with a lower RON number, you'll eventually end up with expensive repairs to undertake.

      e10 yields comparatively lower energy per given amount of fuel, so you need run some maths to see that you're actually saving any money filling e10. I'd normally go with 91 if my car could run on it.

    •  

      occasiuonaly it's better as the detergents will help clean the spark plugs.
      But I'm guessing if you're asking then your car isn't designed to run (take advantage of) 95/98, as such it's not going to make much of a different for mileage.

    Hi i have a question, my car uses 95. It says min 95 on flaps.

    Can I use 98 petrol as well? Will it damage the car?

    Also can it mix with 95 if you fuel in 98?

    Thanks alot!

      She'll be right.

    •  

      Yes you can use 98. The 95 on the inside of your fuel flap is just the minimum required by your engine for safe operation. Mixing 95 and 98 is OK.

    •  

      98 is higher than 95 so yes you can.

      Yes.

    • +1 vote

      Yes you can use 98 as your car is min 95. It will not damage your car.

      From my understanding, you can mix 95 and 98 fuel. It will result somewhere in between but still above your min 95.

      We have been running our VW Golf on 98 since we got it, it recommends a minimum of 95…

      Seems to run a little better on 98, but need these fuel locks to afford the difference often ;)

        When I first got my Golf Tsi I bought 98. After a year decided to give 95 a try and there was no drop in power or fuel economy. Been using 95 since. Have used the savings to pay for the timing belt :(

    •  

      I think it's actually better to run 98 RON over 95 RON.

      For a 6c cents more, when normally priced, you get the cleaning agents of 98 RON as well. You're already paying 12c more from 91 to 95, so might as well go all the way.

      •  

        also most places are no longer stocking 95, so it's becoming harder to get..

        •  

          really? apart from Costco, I haven't noticed that? if anything I've noticed at 7-11 in Melbourne, not all pumps have 98,

            @supabrudda: Doesn't really apply to VIC as much but in NSW and QLD there are mandates for ethanol sales which have affected fuel choice at servos with 4 tanks (3 unleaded and 1 diesel). Depends on the area whether the servo stocks 95 or 98, most have chosen to drop 95.

      thanks everyone for their response!

    Is there anyway of deleting an old lock in that anyone's figured out?

      Not too sure mate I would probably have a read through the Fuel Watch thread!

      I find the best way to be catching a bus. You don't even need to hop off the bus, just as you pass 7-Eleven you can lock in the price.

        You can do a fly over in a plane too, but you need to do it quickly before you move out of the area.

    well I would, but I've still got 70l of 91 @ $1.199 to buy <sigh>

  •  

    Cheers mate!!

  •  

    Is it also a drive-in price?

  •  

    Damn, slept on it and missed it

  •  

    Bummer.. I'm about to hop in the car to drive interstate to lock in this price.

  •  

    tried adding a card to the app but it keeps giving me the "harry" error. same with another phone.

    any ideas how to get around it?

  •  

    Locked and loaded 50L thanks @dealbot
