Do you see any advantage in using “premium” fuel for your vehicle or is it simply a cost that you should avoid?

I’ve owned both a Santro (sold at 45,000+ kms) and a Swift (currently at 32,000+ kms) and have never ever seen a performance/mileage difference when using “premium” fuel.

Note: I didn’t run-in my Swift — it’s not meant to be. And, when traffic-free, my Swift shifts always happen at the red line.

They charge 3 – 4 bucks more per litre and promise a better mileage which i think is not right. It is just a better way of making money. Advantage is for the fuel refining firm and the petrol pump owner. Not for the buyer :-)

@ topic – I guess its one way of making money for these private firms to whom the subsidies have been denied..what say?

Agree on that there is no improvement in the mileage. But the pick-up is good. That’s the only advantage.
