    Seems to happen weekly in Glen Waverley.
    No complaints about that though!

    I would pedal my bike there if I live in less than 10km away.

    If I have been using and tank is half full with unleaded 91 - can I fill with this 98?

    Waste of money unless your car needs premium only.

    It's 6% more expensive than the cheapest 91, and you won't get any added mileage (certainly not 6%) from this.

      OK here we go. There is always one anti 98 poster.

      If you had a crap box, sure go ahead and put 91 in. However, if you care for your vehicle and like to mitigate any mechanical issues down the track, get 98. If money is an issue you can fill up with 98 maybe once in every 3 or 4 fills.

      Not to mention added environmental benefits and economic benefits if you have a fleet.

      Drive did a test, E10 uses 7.64% more fuel than 98 and 91 uses 3.72% more than 98. Again, this can vary wildly between vehicles.

      Also check your tyres regularly. Get prolonged use and can save a lot on fuel economy. If you don't have a TPMS get one.

        Research Octane Numbers refer to the ability to resist early detonation for higher compression ratios, which are typically found in high performance cars. It does NOT refer to energy density of the fuel

        Typically higher compression ratios produce more power. Compression ratios can only be changed if you tune your car.
        Otherwise, compression ratios are defined by your combustion chamber volume and cylinder, both of which are physical parts and do not change unless you have a car that has a variable compression ratio (like the Mazda Skyactiv engines)

        Cars will not automatically adjust timing for 98 RON fuel (to use a higher compression ratio) if it was designed for 91.
        A knock sensor (if your car even has one) would retard the timing of the ignition in an attempt to prevent further premature explosions due to lower than specified octane fuel used.
        If it automatically adjusts, that means your car is constantly trying to increase the compression ratio until it detects fuel exploding when it's not supposed to.. then stays at that ignition timing.
        Unless you tune your car, your car won't adjust for 98 fuel. 98 RON refers to its ability to handle high compression ratios. Your engine's compression ratios are set by mechanical parts and physical attributes inside your engine

        If you had a crap box, sure go ahead and put 91 in. However, if you care for your vehicle and like to mitigate any mechanical issues down the track, get 98. If money is an issue you can fill up with 98 maybe once in every 3 or 4 fills.

        There's additives in 98 RON, with each additive mixture being different from brand to brand.

        98 RON = Same anti-knock characteristics of a 98% iso-octane and 2% heptane
        91 RON = Same anti-knock characteristics of a 91% iso-octane and 9% heptane
        Higher RON refers to higher anti-knock characteristic = / = Higher Energy Density (fuel efficiency)
        98 RON has additives, also sulfur content @ 50ppm vs 150ppm, this is not for your engine performance, it's for the environment
        I'd definitely fill 98 RON for this price (if I had a choice), but just saying, 98 does not automatically mean higher energy density, and thus better fuel economy directly because of that.

          I use 98 because it says to use that on the fuel cap.

          •  

            @Tiggrrrrr: Good!
            I use 98 RON because mine is 95 RON minimum, and 98 fuel prices are cheaper than 95 when it's been set to a 91 price

            Also, every 7/11 and Caltex has 98, but maybe only 20% have 95 RON fuel..

            For me:
            Convenience(location) and prices dictate which fuel I use between 95/98

      •  

        I agree, my car using 91 can run around 500km per tank, 98 can run around 550km. If the difference of the price is less than 10%, I would rather use 98 for all time.

      I'd love to see tangible evidence (rather than claims) so I can make an informed decision. Everything I've read suggests there's a difference worthy of continuing with the 98 fuel.

      Even though my car only requires 91, 98 gives better acceleration, especially when towing.

      My mechanic reckons he can see the difference especially in the build up in spark plugs between the various fuels.

    Thanks op!!!

    Thanks OP.

    Thanks OP.

    Thanks OP

    Another pro tip - don't Park facing uphill, I only ended up filling 85% of my tank.

    •  

      I'm so confused - was the fuel station facing uphill?

      •  

        The spots next to the pumps are not flat. It's not huge, like 4% grade maybe. I'm just saying that when I was done filling and left I realised my tank was 85% full after filling to the first click.

    Locked in - thanks!

    Is it still working? I'm getting 148.9

    I'm getting 148.9 too, looks like I just missed the boat

    Returning the OzBargain truck back to base all the while the roads flowing again with cheap U98 for another week.

    Do they stock 95 there?
