Although BMW don't like it, we can use up to 10% Ethanol in our fuel. Interesting you were able to get more kms out of a tankful as it lowers distance travelled compared to unleaded petroleum fuel.

One guy over at Whirlpool forum claims his 5 series had improved power & torque with United's P100.

I used Shell's 100RON (98RON + 10% Ethanol) in my 325 a few years back and performance was much worse than with 98RON.

Just thought perhaps matters may be different with the turbo car. I've decided to stick to V-Power.
