    The one on the old swords road has it, as does the new station opened off the M1 at City North.

    Afaik the miles is normal 95 Ron fuel and miles plus is 97 Ron. I can't see them providing normal fuel, miles at 95 and plus at 97. So I reckon the miles plus has to be 97. That's the one I filled with Gary and there's a massive difference in the car with it. It's about 7c a litre more expensive.

    Great news to have some premium fuel available, recession officially over now

    I wonder what the difference between the 97 and 95 + NF booster would be - performance wise regarding detonation etc?

    I haven't worked out the economics of it yet but it would sure be handy to do away measuring out all the bottles. And at least the fuel is completely mixed, I always wondered how well the shot of booster mixes in with a full tank.

    Will give it a go at next fill up

    Not sure if the miles plus is actually 97 ron.

    Mailed them earlier asking what stations were selling 97. They sent back the following link

    https://www.circlek.ie/miles/milesplus

    Note there's "miles plus 95" and "miles plus 97".

    Mailed again to ask specifically if there was any 97 on sale and to clear up the difference between the 2 fuels listed online.

    Replied back with a list of stations selling "miles plus" no mention of 95/97.

    At that point i gave up, might as well be trying to get a straight answer from Bertie Ahern.

    I'll call into one of the stations to see what the pump says but wouldn't be wasting any money without a clear indication that I am actually buying 97.

    Apparently only NI are getting the 97 Ron Miles Plus. It'd work out near enough the same lobbing 1/4 bottle NF in with a tank of regular fuel.

    However, it does work. At least for me.

    I just reviewed the pdf for the 97 which is a .ie document so its for the irish market me would think.

    They are still rebranding and the topaz miles plus was only 95 so existing staff probably havent been trained.

    So unless it says 97 on the pump, I'd stay away. Time will tell I guess 🤞

    Is this for real? Are we getting 97oct petrol in Ireland? I hope its not a joke, coz it would be really bad joke if it was...

    if its not, thats amazing! Also, does it mean TOPAZ doesnt exist anymore and its being rebranded to Circlejerk? Erm I mean Circle K?
    He has the right to have and share his opinion. The fact that his opinion differs from reality, is however irrelevant.

    Its been all over the news/social Topaz rebranding to CicleK

    Re 97, we live in hope but not confirmed yet... apparently it has to be labelled 97 at the pump from what CircleK says but no one has seen a 97 pump yet...

    I sent them an email looking for confirmation... lets see what they come back with.

    "I wonder if you can confirm the octane rating of your fuels since you have been rebranded circle k.

    There has been a lot of confusion online over the last week or so as there are a lot of people thinking that miles plus will now become a 97 octane rated fuel as per a pdf file taken from circlek.ie - http://www.circlek.ie/wp-content/upl...nleaded_97.pdf

    Nobody in your stores knows anything about a 97 rated fuel and no circle k store that I have seen have any pumps stating 97. I have seen miles plus pumps but unless it states 97 on the pump I will assume it is 95 rated fuel and will not pay more for the same octane fuel.

    I drive a high performance car that needs higher octane fuel and would hope that 97 fuel is coming.

    Can you please confirm if circle k miles plus is or will become a 97 octane fuel in the republic of Ireland as indicated on the circlek.ie domain?"

    Looks like it’s not happening without a lot of lobbying - this was posted on the Irish rotary page by a guy trying to get them to stock it

    “Update on 97 octane down south, I am trying to get rolled out (Please share , we need to create a demand by emailing our interest in their Product)

    Thanks for getting in touch, at present none of our Forecourts in Ireland have 97 Ron unleaded. Our fuel department have been trying out Miles Plus unleaded as a premium fuel and if successful we will role out further fuel grades.
    Sorry to disappoint

    Best regards,

    David Connolly
    Circle K Ireland

    Keep emailing your interest and see if we can get this rolled out”
