  • V-Power - Hmmmm.....

    Just wanted to "treat" my car to V-Power on 2 refills.

    Noticed that I could go further than normal (of course at a premium price per liter) by about 50km+. But the OBC shows the same FC but the estimated mileage range is further. Also, my journey routes remain about the same.

    Anybody have the same situation? What is there in V-Power that does this?

    P.S Cannot tahan lah to pay the RM0.45/lit extra. Will revert back to normal the next round after my current tank runs out.

      But does the extra price justify the extra mileage?

        Try Shell Super.
        Same RON octane as V-power.

        You get less mileage with Regular because is only RON 92. (not because the gas is bad, is because you get timing retard)
        Some Shell station only have Regular and V-power. Why no Super ? Because V-power is more profitable

          That's the big-big question!

          For my E90, full tank is about 63liters. Assuming you pump to about 60 liters, which is RM2.00 x 60 liters = RM120

          Compared to V-Power is RM2.45 x 60 liters = RM147

          Will RM27 justify the additional 50-60km? Let's translate RM27 back to petrol at RM2.00 per liter which is about 13.5 liters.

          13.5 liters for 50-60km? Is it worth it? Assuming the manufacturer's specs for 325 is 9l/100km, it's a bit under. But given our malaysian traffic, looks reasonable though.

          P.S Not sure what additional additives are there in V-Power though.

            MSport, I've been using V-Power exclusively in my E90, and my long term FC is 11.8 after 11,000km. If you're getting 12+ to 13+ FC compared to my 11.8, then I reckon that the extra cost is worth it. Are you looking at your trip FC or long term FC? It's not going to show a difference if you're looking at long term FC as that is an average. You should base your calculations on trip FC.

            Mind you, my right foot is pretty heavy as I believe in bringing the engine near to red-line at least every few days. So I've been impressed with the E90's FC for a 218hp car.

            BTW, in terms of power, I can't feel a difference between Super and V-Power in my more powerful cars, but I can certainly feel the difference in our small car and previous 4WD.

                I thought Regular is RON92, Super is RON97 and V-Power is RON99.

                  No.
                  Regular is RON92
                  Super and V-power are both RON97

                      Neither.
                      I prefer Caltex or Mobil. RON 97 for my e36 of course.

                      Is hard to find Super or Regular on Shell gas station.(they either have one or the other, never both. My VIOS use RON 92). So I just give up shell, and don't go.

                        BHP ... i'm surprised no one mentioned about BHP ... so far IMHO BHP sits in between shell super and V-power ... i'm very satisfied with BHP tho V-power is still d best

                          I dont' see how V-power being "the best" since Octane rating is the same.

                          For 0.45 more, I will just mix myself
