Hello knowledgeable Panda people. I'm sure I read on here that sticking Shell V-Power (formerly Optimax) was good for the 100hp and kept the engine clean.

However, I have an 8 mile round trip to the nearest Shell.

So, are the rival brands just as good? The difference seems to be something to do with er... RON.

V-power is 99, the other premium brands are 97 (apart from the the one that is 102 RON from BP (i think) that is £2.50 a litre though).

Any advice welcome.

Run my Panda on Tesco 99RON as it isn't that expensive and seems to make the car a lot smoother.
