Not used octane booster myself, mines happy on V-power. Worth getting it detuned a bit to run on lower octane? Not screwing around with bottles of booster.

Tis available at shell filling stations. Other companies have thier own equivalent higher octane (98 RON) fuels. Be a bit wary of supermarket stuff though, I've heard some bad reports.

I was told that 95 is best I'll get in the republic as anything higher was banned by the green party........but that could be shite talk!!

Bloody greens and their precious "fresh air". Not sure how they justify that seeing as higher octane fuel should burn cleaner and more efficiently.
Was told by my tuner that I can run on 95 but can't get over enthusiastic with the loud pedal or damage may result.
I would have thought a standardish motor would be fine on 95. A decent tuner should be able to make it run happily enough I would have thought.
I was asked if I would prefer mine to be tuned for 95 or 98...I went for 98.

Exactly the higher the octane the cleaner combustion you get 😤😤
Ya see that's why I'm worried bcoz I've been told shes pushing 500 brake, what damage could I do running her on 95??
And I'm sure there is a few tuners over here but I have no clue where to find them

Any time I'm in the South with my mine I always carry 2 bottle's of miller's cvl turbo to put in the tank if I need petrol, even then i only put in enough petrol to get me back up the road so I can fill up with 97ron again
Good man I'll order some of that so bcoz only 95 down here thanks sparkso lad 👍
