    do you have halfords in ireland ? if so i'm sure ive seen it in there or just go to your local garage i'm sure they could pick some up for you , or better still hop on the ferry to holyhead with an empty car and 10 jerry cans and come and fill up here lol

      Cheers for the reply, yea i was thinking of doing the holyhead thing and all but then the old fela reminded me that petrol goes off.

      I was hoping one of the tuners would say there was no problem running the car on octane booster.

      Halfords opening soon here,in the mean time il suss out some other motorfactors.

          if you want an octane booster use millers.

            V Power is 99 RON right? If not it is off to Tesco as I have drained £60 worth of V through my new engine so the cleaning agents should have clung on!

              i use the V-power but some times put the TESCO love juice in.

              If you add a bottle of millers CVT octane booster in aswell OMG its different

                  most halfords and any good cars spares place about £5.00 and its safe but you wil need a funnel to put it in the tank.

                  or buy it from the link i put up its a good price.

                      i think its the same stuff

                      you get loads more mid range and better economy if your slow driving.

                      get some and try its only £5.00
