Dicca, Ive used it since I got the Hatch and not had any problems. And at about 6p per litre cheaper.....you can do the maths.

Got to say I use vpower all the time, don't suppose it would make a difference as they are both 99 ron, might give it a try  Suspect  Very Happy

I nearly always use Tesco Momentum as I live right next door to a Tesco that sells it, when my car was mapped by Bob Rawle he said there's virtually no difference between that and V-Power

Im gonna get m some this morning and see what's it like.

On a separate note when I owed a Ibiza Cupra many moons ago if it was cold enough and the snowflake warning light came on the dash it was like a extra boost symbol Smile it loved cold air

I'm presuming the Scoobs are the same ?

I've always used v-power, might have to give momentum a try if it pops more  Naughty

Yeah that applies to all turbocharged engines Captain, the colder the air the more dense it is, the more dense it is the more oxygen it contains, more oxygen mixed with cool dense fuel makes a more powerful power stroke in turn giving more BHP

I only use v-power as that is what my silver car was mapped on, wouldn't hesitate to use tesco 99 if it had been mapped on that.

I chuck any old shite in the black one though  Laughing

ive used momentum for years now both in the hakweye and the saloon and found no difference between that and v power apart from the 5-10p a litre cheaper.

Only difference I've noticed is that v power gives better MPG than tesco, only a few MPG but it's consistent and when you do 20k+ a year it all adds up

No mate, like I said its consistent, not just on one tank of fuel, that's my experiment with quite a few tank fulls in all sorts of driving conditions. I still use it so don't think I was trying to justify using v power over tesco, but I think the price difference is negated by the mpg difference

I've checked mine loads of times and there's no difference. I even got 320 miles on a tank on a long run on tescos the other day.

Bloody hell, 320 isnt bad, Ive never seen more than 260 on mine. Has that improved significantly since you got it mapped Iddy or has it always been like that ?

Just an observation I've made bud, might be affecting my car different as it's been mapped on V-power?? I don't know. Like I said it's not that it puts me off using it, I still do, but I feel that the slight cost saving is outdone by the difference in MPG (in my car at least)

If I put it in I mode and cruise at 70, it's averaging 32mpg. Haven't noticed any difference in mpg since it was mapped to be honest.

I suppose going from standard to nearly 30% extra power, any gains from improving fuel efficiency in the map will have been drunk away by your right foot  Laughing
