Subject: [ROVERNET - UK] Shell V Power

I suppose this post is aimed at Australian and possibly New Zealand =
but I would be interested if other countries have similar fuel. Here in =
Oz I
have been putting Shell Optimax (unleaded 98 octane) with a fuel =
additive in
my 1976 P6B auto. I have no complaints and it has been running =
However, Shell here (other places as well?) are replacing Optimax with a =
98 octane fuel called 'V-Power'. Shell describes the new fuel as: "New =
V-Power is a high density, high performance 98 octane fuel which =
Friction Modification Technology (FMT). New Shell V-Power with FMT is
designed to reduce friction in the engine, improve engine performance =
responsiveness, and give improved acceleration, in comparison with Shell
Optimax." Shell also produce a 95 octane unleaded fuel. I would be
interested to hear what other readers use in their P6Bs. Do I really =
the 98 octane fuel? Or will the 95 octane fuel be OK?
