  5. Shell V-power

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I recently filled up with Shell V-power to see what difference (if any) it made to the drive. One day after filling up I noticed that the engine is hunting when idling, and on the odd occasion ithe swing was quite noticeable to the point where I thought the engine was going to stop. As for the...
  6. Good result from Shell

    General Alfa Discussion
    FIlling up last week at my local Shell garage the pump failed to cut out - I was in a bit of a day dream and ended up spilling about 5 litres of fuel on the forecourt. A bit pi**ed off I went to have a moan and was given the brush off (have to speak to the manager etc etc). Anyway, one (slightly...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Read summat in Top Gear mag about VPower diesel being really good, though I'd have a go with the petrol - what a difference!:cool: It's like my engines been given a new life:D Won't be doing it too often though £0.99p a litre:eek: Is cheap supermarket fuel way worse than the big boy's stuff?
  9. Pierre's hard shell wax adventures

    General Alfa Discussion
    ... and these adventures so far are not excellent. :cry: For the first time I applied TurtleWax hard shell wax on the 155's hood... What a mistake! It now appears I applied far too much of it. I tried to buff it off, as I'm supposed to, but there's still a good bunch remaining on the hood...

    I've been reading in cyberpunk fiction about people who continue to live after their body has physically died either as computer programs ("uploaded minds"), as cyborgs with replaceable mechanical bodies but the brain still intact or even within "shells", totally mechanical bodies without any...

  15. Shell V Power

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know there's another thread on this fuel elsewhere, for those of you not in the know it has replaced Optimax as Shell's premimum grade petrol, and this time it is made to BS7800 (min 97 ron) rather than Optimax which was only produced to BS EN 228 which is the British Standard for regular...
  16. Anybody using Shell V-Power? (Optimax replacement)

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi if you are what are your thoughts? Initially I'm impressed, my fuel economy has gone through the roof, I'm tickling 40mpg where before I was lucky to get 33mpg over a full tank. Haven't done any real performance testing because got new brakes on so need to drive a few miles to bed them in...

    Soooo some old git managed to reverse into my drivers side door while trying to turn around in a close where my mate lives. he's managed to put two dents in the door and scratched the wing, for some reason he wants to pay for it out of his own pocket... I've gotten two quotes both of which...

    Has anyone tried any of the so called 'Super' fuel petrols in their Alfa? I've tried one of the diesels in a JTS Stilo i used to have, but was well unimpressed by the drop in performance. I also tried one of the petrol (BP's I think) in my old 1.6 Multipla, but thought that is caused, or added...

    Was it anyone on here? I'm pretty sure it was a 75, although could have been a 33. Looked pretty cool, nice condition in Alfa Red.
