I haven't driven the car enough to notice if I'm honest.

It will be interesting to see what you think with some miles on.

I went for a drive last night. For the majority, I took my time, and here and there I put my foot down. It felt quick, but this car always does because of the excellent power to weight ratio. The economy was around 48 MPG indicated, so no noticeable difference in either performance or economy, but it's early days. My next tank will hopefully be premium again.

I wonder sometimes if it really makes a difference other than to the seller's bottom line. I'm sure in some it does but I suspect many are getting nothing more than a placebo effect from the added expense.

I tried a prolonged test with Premium, and though I did see a slight improvement in mpg the cost differential meant that it worked out more expensive per mile than regular.

Cost wise, I can't imagine it would make financial sense. But in a high powered car, I want the best performance, even if the difference is 2-3 BHP, I'll take it.

Looks like we are going to be struggling to get fuel of any kind. Due to the shortage of drivers, after Brexit, filling stations are not getting deliveries. The government told the public not to panic-buy - with the inevitable consequence. Many forecourts are now limiting sales to 30.

Yep, my local garage is already out of diesel, and the other garage had alot of dry pumps too. I'm lucky I don't need a car for traveling to work, but I feel for those that do. I blame the media for telling people not to "panic buy" as soon as you tell anyone not to panic buy, they do exactly that, with many people going to fill thier tanks "just incase". Silly...

We recently saw reports of people putting gasoline into anything, even garbage bags. Some people are too stupid for anything.

Yea there was woman who bought bottles of water, went out to the forecourt and emptied them before refilling them with petrol. It's beyond belief. The practice of filling fuel tanks to the top is not something we do here in the UK. As fuel is so dear, and our cars go much further than those in the US, most people just put a bit in here and a bit in there. Half a tank could last a week or two. It just shows how quickly our fuel would run out if everyone in the UK filled thier tanks to the brim.
