Hi guys

Thinking of trying Optimax for my 147. Can anyone advise me on this matter? Is there a big different and as they suggested; would be good for the engine and performance?

Many thanks

Hi,

loads of posts about this already, but from my experience, the engine seems to respond quicker and pull better across the rev range.
I now use it exclusively.
I also put Millers octane booster to take the RON upto 100, but that didn't seem to make much difference.

Optimax is sort of a Red-Bull but for motorengines, right?

Go for the Optimax - it works for me - not massive, but genuine noticable difference and it keeps your engines internals so much cleaner.
Proven to work in various tests and most who have used it on here agree.

Optimax is a religion - it s been superb and will reside in my tank whenever I can get it. It is faster, it weighs more (10% by volume) and it does what it says on the tin.

I worship at the temple of Optimax,
I bathe in Optimax,
I drink Optimax,
I am at one with Optimax.

Wasn't there a transformer called Optimax Prime battling with the evil Mogodon?

Less pinking is all good. Basically its a higher RON petrol which means its less suspectiable to being ignited too early in the sequence from heat. and its only ignited by a spark. Therefore it develops the right ignition at the right time and gives more power as a result. If it ignites too early then it pushes the piston back down when its on its way up.

Its 99.3 ron when mixed with Millers Octane boost,and there are some scooby owners that swear it causes pinking in their highly tuned Imprezas,one such guy,Dingy I think,researched this to the enth degree,and er,came up with a load of techy stuff i can't explain.
