not R33 but R32 with RB20DE (few mods). get a reliable 25mpg and i only really do short journeys to work and back with the occasional weekend (hard) blast.
I reset the ECU and run full tanks of 97ron min with STP octane booster. it is win. :)

I drive 12 miles a day to and from work and a full tank gives me 300 miles - ish :)
Whoa thats actually worse than my RB25!!! did you mean 12 each way or 6 each way? I get exactly 80 miles for £20. Its a 65 ltr tank @ 1.20 in my area thats 78 pund odd, lets call it 80, so in theory my car should get roughly 320 to a tank. What you got, a mad max supercharger? :D :D

FUEL QUESTION's !?

Does anyone know how much fuel you have in an RB20E Reserve tank? - when the fuel needles indicates you've hit reserve ???

Oh, and I run my RB20E on UNLEADED, Will it take Super Un-Leaded ?? and is it ok to just switch from one fuel type to another?? - Martin.

Holy thread bump!

There is no "reserve" tank.... look underneath, just 1 large tank which holds 65 litres iirc (that's for an R33 25-t, I can't see Nissan changing the tank for other models).

For those who don't live there (like me :D), what's the octane rating for either fuel you mentioned?

So when the needle indicates I'am out of fuel.......................... I'am OUT OF FUEL !? Hmm...ok thats useful to know... I may have to give her a full tank soon :)

I dont know the Octane rating for either....I'll have a look online and see if I can find out :) - Martin.

That's what the needle is for - if it's pointing to empty, then you're empty (or very close to it).
I dunno why people like to let their car run on fumes... just put some damn fuel in it lol

I've found this info, I dont know how reliable it is !? but this is what someone has put :-

'generally unleaded petrol is rated at 95 ron super unleaded is 97 ron.the highest rated petrol in this country is shell optimax or v shell thats 98 ron for higher performance cars.'


Hope that helps (you help me) :) !? - Martin.

Most standard unleaded is 95 where as super unleaded is 97. V Power is 99ron same as Tesco Momentum 99.

Nothing wrong with putting that in your car.

Not sure what the effect would be of putting a lower octane fuel in an import non turbo skyline though. :/
