Having finally read the relevant section of the (online) manual properly I filled her up with "the proper stuff" today for the first time - Shell V-power.
It was heading home and only 3 miles away (1m of M25 then tiny roads), so now I need an opportunity to see if it makes a difference.
The manual actually says:
Quote:
95 RON can be used for normal driving.
98 RON is recommended for optimum performance and minimum fuel consumption
