V-power nitro

So who's heard about the new vpower nitro coming out on the 18th to replace vpower, 102 Ron & still the same price.
I believe the south is getting it first.

Do you know if it replaces the 99 completely ?? My car is getting mapped before it will completely be available on 99 so will need a tweak to make the most of it ! If 99 is still available though I will use that instead

I have heard about it already being used overseas, although Shell seem to be very quiet about it here and I have not seen anything.
Although... I think I would use it as it's called 'Nitro' and that sounds cool. Job done.

If you do a google search for V-Power Nitro you can read the cached PH thread.


Also, it's 'only' going to be 100RON and it will cost more.

Hmm, I'd read somewhere it was 102, and that's why they changed the name from tesco99 to momentum instead.
