Are those cars all actually 91 cars? Because if not it's a problemBallroomblitz1 wrote: ↑ A friend of mine out Whitby / Ajax way called me to tell me the Shell out his way also gave a free upgrade to Shell V-power 91 gas....he took all three cars of his in to be filled one after another.
Shell must be behind in their deliveries, might hear of other locations joining the trend.

Thats not what he meant, if your car is only tuned for 87 octane fuel, it doesn't matter if you put higher octane fuel into your car. It's not better for the car or able to give it magical powers. All it does is handle knock slightly better.glover78 wrote: ↑ No it's not a problem.
"Is New Shell V-Power for all cars?
Yes. The new Shell V-Power fuels are designed for use in whatever type of diesel or unleaded car you drive – whether it is old or new.
New Shell V-Power fuels are also suitable for motorbikes."

Well it certainly isn’t a problem as he stated. As you are saying it might be actually better. Haven’t kept up on Shell but possibly no Ethanol which is better. Possibly better mileage. Love to see this guy drive away from this station passing up 91 at 87 price in search of a station with some 87!

He said that it would be a problem, and I'm trying to state that it's not.

Well, to be fair, there isn't much benefit to 89. Most cars either use either regular 87 or premium 91 and the cars that need premium fuel shouldn't be using 89, so it's almost useless. It makes sense to offer 87 and 93 for those who need it and blend to make 91 for those who don't want 93 (and there should be little benefit of going to 93 if your car's not tuned for it). If your car's manual recommends 87, there is no benefit to using 91 or 93. Higher performance cars may benefit from 93/94 octane. My (non-performance or luxury) car's advertised specs are rated using 93 octane and so for a few cents premium over 91, I'm okay going with 93 as I only fill-up once a month anyway and don't mind the small dollar difference for the extra horses even though my car can actually run on 87.mudd_stuffin wrote: ↑ Since BC = Bring Cash

It is a problem. It can lead to engine failure. My buddy rebuilt an engine that failed due to this. The owner wanted to take good care of her beloved car and kept putting high octane gas because it is "premium". So for a car that is not meant to be used with a gas like that what happens is ompression cycle begins, then gas gets compressed, then the point in time when it should explode but it doesn't, then towards the end of the cycle it does explode. So what happens is some of the gas actually doesn't have time to burn in that cycle. As a result, lots of mess in the cylinder and eventually it fills up with residual chemicals and seizes.
