I've used nothing but Shell V-Power/Optimax in my cars. Littledigger has it right too, a guy I knew years ago tried a full tank of both standard Shell and Optimax, the latter yielding around 40 miles more during combined driving.
I don't know if this applies nationwide but V-Power is now officially 99ron in my area. When it replaced Optimax (regarded as 96.8ron) it was only a 97ron fuel, now we have the full strength version the Germans have had for over five years.
I've never tried it but BP sell - apart from their standard Ultimate range - an Ultimate 102ron fuel. It's only available at a few forecourts (one not far from me, in Egham, sells it) and costs around £2.50 a litre, over £11 a gallon!
Track use only methinks!
With reliability will ultimately come monotony.....
