    I did, but on my car is not making much difference.
    On high revs it is more responsive.
    I would say it will make difference in turbo cars, but by how much-I don’t know.
    Hold my beer. 'll show you how to do it :-D

    Have used the Topaz/Circle K miles plus a few times in the Skoda. It loves the stuff. The difference is night and day. Possibly partly down to it being a direct injection engine aswell. Thread on Backroads giving it good reviews.

    Yep, Canadian parent company that bought Topaz from DOB is rebranding it to Circle K over next 18 - 24 months. Any new stations opening will be Circle K.

    So if it’s same company as topaz with the same miles plus did they not say in a letter to bang that the RON values weren’t any higher than 95

    Nope, this is a bio-ethanol with a new additive. Different to the last one.

    Excellent stuff. I wonder if other petrol stations will feel compelled to stock 97 RON going forward.

    Now I need to get re-mapped!

    Just look at the pump carefully though.... as the Miles or Miles Plus can be 95 too... the Miles/Miles Plus indicates the amount of detergents in it and not the octane level (see spec sheets on links Colm posted).

    So look for 97 Miles, or 97 Miles Plus for the higher octane stuff (with moderate or higher level of detergents).
