Good question,

I use super-unleaded all the time. Ususally from BP stations. I've been using it so long that I'm just used to the performance. I think it improves things a little. Also started using BP ' ultimate' diesel in my TDCI Focus which has definitely improved performance and lets me achieve 530 miles+ from a single tank. Yes, they cost more per litre but I think these 'opitimum' fuels are worth it if your car is otherwise in good running order or your extra pennies - per-litre are being wasted...

I use Optimax 'cos I have a Squadra chip fitted. Optimax is actually cheaper here than everyone elses Super. I've driven the car chipped on normal unleaded and it lost the top end if I remember correctly.
