The other day I had to stop at a localish petrol station not my normal local ones and it was a Gulf, there premium unleaded was "Endurance" first time ive come across this.

Any one else had experience with this and what did they think?

No need to turn this into I use, Vpower 102, Nitro, Tesco Momentum etc as I can see that from numerous other posts that come up before of what fuel people used.

Just wondering on this Gulf fuel as first time I had come across it.

Also struggling to find what Octane it is, can only find one at Silverstone which is 102

If they are selling 102 Ron I want to know where my nearest station is, Shell just looked at me blank when I asked if they had any very high octane V-power.
Sorry I have mentioned the V word.

ROG :rs:

There is a BP filling station near the hotel I stay in when I work in Frankfurt that sells 107 octane.

Up to 10% possible extra power for a well tuned RS then.
Only problem for me I would have to drive from Cornwall to Portsmouth to fill up being the nearest filling station, rather defeats the object but it would certainly be a quick journey home.

Ah right, rarely go out that way & with the amount of Shell stations around my way, not much need!

Interesting to see if there's any difference, i would have thought if the price is similar to V-power, its probably 98 or 99 ron. :nice:

Assuming so, but like I said can only see on google, that the one supplied to silverstone is 102, doesn't mean they all are, and doesn't say on the pump either.

Know what your saying, just cant see how they could sell it at such a difference in price as wasn't the BP102 stuff over £2 a litre also?

The Canning Town filling station seems an odd choice. Or is it for the car thieves to top up the vehicle before they export it via the docks? ;)
