    did not vote cos frankly speaking, i like v-power but i can say that it is value for money...

    if just for normal riding, think 98 is good enough.. but v-power is when you want to pump that addition kick when you feel like having a good pickup... of course having to drag for a pickup is surely a waste of money.. but for the shiok of it only.. kekekeke...

    I think hor, esso/mobil has more discount leh cause normally it is 6% discount + the smile card which give u another 4% discount so total u will get 10% discount which is more than what other petrol station is offering. And i heard for my uncle that esso/mobil petrol will not leave much dirty stuff (forget the spelling for it haha) after use but other brand will leave a lot of dirty stuff behind. Also the engine will suck the petrol of esso/mobil until very dry but nt the same case for other petrol.Eventhough the oil tank is empty and u cant start the bike,u will still see some petrol left in ur oil tank and it is nt the same case for esso/mobil petrol. Pls correct me if i am wrong, would love to have more of ur opinion !!

    Chio Bu on my ex ride !!!

    Erm.... I think SPC cheapest.

    7% is the base amount of discount (although dunno y they put 6% outside). Spending on the past month will then be looked at for discount on current month.

    0-50 = 3%
    50-300 = 5%
    >300 = 6%

    Most car drivers get 13% off. Quite easy to clock more than $300 on petrol for car. For me, every month 7% + 5% = 12% nia.

    Eh... And I think petrol more or less the same. Pumped at esso/mobil before. Nothing special.

    if u are talking about S'pore petrol....
    i would go for Caltex...the most expensive one....
    Quality is the best i've ever tried...even V-power also cannot win.
    It's not only smooth, mileage also good.
    Apparently, not many go for Caltex....try out one of these days.
    $$ also not much diff from V-Power.

    Use Esso/Mobil because of smile point and discount.

    Have tried Esso/Mobile 95, engine almost die off during pickup at traffic light. Have to accelerate more during pickup, waste petrol.

    Have switched back to Esso/Mobile 98, smooth during pickup at traffic light and so far no problem.

    Used to pump Caltex 95 but switched to Mobil Syn2000 recently. Mileage about the same (22 km/litre) compare to 95 petrol...

    Read in my fren bike manual states "use unleaded petrol with a research octane number of 91 or higher",so i guess 92 is fine then.Using caltex jb petrol now,mileage pretty good compared to mobil used prev.

    Wah.. then all those who pump RON 98 and Vpower... Overkill liaoz?

    Anyway.. I believe in treating my wifey well.. so I let her drink at least RON 97 - JB petrol (sometimes Vpower to clean engine) or 98 - SG petrol (very very seldom).

    hmm... my fren say for new bikes can use vpower, older bikes downgrade to 98. den even older ones, say 4 years onwards, 95 best, cuz vpower too strong for the engine.

    think is opp case for humans? baby drink milk, children drink coke, teens drink jolly shandy, young adults drink beer, adults drink whiskey, old people drink Dom! hahaha!!!

    hmm.... I thot should be other way.... bike too old cannot tahan the knocking and must use higher octane number fuel. Newer bike can use lower octane number fuel so long as meet the min requirement in the manual.

    regarding the octane level for fuel, caltex's fuel is having the level that is nearest to the stated amount on the pump.

    Had a friend working in the QC check for octane level. He commented so. so now u know.....

    can be a good thing can be a bad thing. if all petrol companies have their RON higher than the listed RON, then Caltex will be viewed as the lowest RON among the brands. If all r lower, then Caltex is the highest RON among all brands.

    well, that could be true.

    however, it doesn't necessary give us a full picture.
    eg.
    stated ron 98
    caltex actual is ron 97.9
    others are ron 97.8
    hardly conclusive yah?

    i don't believe any company can get it right 100% all the time. hence, there's a limit on acceptability and level of consistency before they can say theirs is ron xx. as long as theirs within the accepted margin of error, it should be alrite.

    i think it is more 2 reducing evaporation of fuel.
    the idea is there.
    but don&#39;t over do it, by using thicker dimension. it will actually stop the fuel fr flowing down due to the negative pressure or vaccum created.

    Mixed with Kerosene?Then isn&#39;t it good?Heard kerosene can be used to clean chain?If really mixed with Kerosene then would it mean that the more we pump V-Power in JB, the cleaner our Fuel tank and pipes would be?&#33;?hee&#33;

    I also always pump V-Power in JB, only once or twice a month pump in Sg if i feel lazy.

    Agree that the V-Power there and in sg is different.Smell different too.Local V-power smell much better and you can feel some extra power but be prepare to feel a little pain when u tilt your head to see the price after pumping.(my personal habit as i always make sure my tank is filled to the brim when i fill at the other side.To busy with squeezing the jerky nozzle with correct pressure)
    Life's a gift... That's why they called it the present.

    tried esso 92.. but seemed really "boh lat" like tt.. so switch back to esso95.. good enough for me..
    can&#39;t remember what was in the owners&#39; manual, but personally i won&#39;t go below 95.

    it&#39;s not the boh lat that we need to worry, it&#39;s the engine knocks that we should be concern about. long term damage to engine isn&#39;t a fun thing.

    hmmmm keeping the air in would help wif the petrol milleage meh ?? 1st time heard that air also helps in milleage......
    yeah, as your carb suck out the fuel from the tank, there must be also some space for the outside air to be drive into the tank.. if you seal it so tight, the result is not going to be good for your bike...

    personally prefers malaysia&#39;s F1 Esso as it gives the best mileage and value for &#036;

    when i tried petronas it kinda got knocking sound. i wonder wads wrong now.

    mileage is abt 360 travelling at 100kmph.

    for sg.. power 98 is more den enough for me. but usually i go for 95. mileage is about 370.. but the &#036;&#036;..

    I heard that BP sold its petrol stations to SPC due to the small market in here. However BP is also one of the shareholders at SPC after the transfer of assets.

    i think it is more 2 reducing evaporation of fuel.
    the idea is there.
    but don&#39;t over do it, by using thicker dimension. it will actually stop the fuel fr flowing down due to the negative pressure or vaccum created.
    Ya very true. Air tight tanks will cause a vaccum and thus leading to petrol unable to flow into the engine and result causing a piston jam. Which is y u see in some bike they have additional air tube to provide more air into the tank so that during a full throttle it will provide u more petrol for u to go faster. As air is pushing down the fuel into your engine.

    asked him how&#39;s business....
    said last few mths...spark plugs sold like &#39;goreng pisang&#39;
    till ran out of stock...
    asked him why.....he found out that the octane level from JB petrol kiosk was reduced
    drastically till the effect causes damage to spark plugs....
    a lot of bikers mentioned bike no power...

    The previous time when i tried the petronas i can feel slight power loss.However V-power still doing fine.
    By the way, which recommended plugs do Ver &#39;s&#39; use and how much for one?

    singapore esso
    blue - 92
    red - 95
    green -98

    got someone ever said b4 e manual advise no lower then 95 octane (red).. so i think better to pump red then blue in singapore. and also the &#036;&#036; difference is negligable. not like from 95 to 98 the difference is almost 10cents..

    oh ya.. i also pump singapore 95 (red).. so far so good.. good fc.. 22km/l

    Anyway,to clear your doubts.. there is no such thing like Malaysian petrol added with kerosene...trust me...I&#39;m working in the petroleum line...any such nonsense the company will get sued..don belief me..try adding SG petrol with kerosene...see whether ur bike can move or not.kerosene and petrol don blend.even Shell pure Vpower is colourless and to add the blue dye is not anyhow adding..we have our own ration and proportion....explaination as why your carbs are dirty..simple...the pump station holding tanks are not well maintained..impurities etc etc.as for RON reducing.its up to the Petroleum company...its just a matter of adding a solution call MTBE to boost the RON... Just sharing my knowledge..

    Now Caltex with the new Techron in their petrols, throtle response feels better and sounds more crisp. Been using in my RX-Z and the piston head is easier to clean now.
