1.6 FSI fuel question

Hi all , having recently purchased a1.6 fsi
What type of fuel is good for this engine ?
Is it better to use the high octane fuel ? ie she'll V power ?
Will it improve the overall milage and performance ?
Would appreciate other fsi owners feedback

Hi Jason, the FSI runs much better on the higher RON fuel. I'm currently using Tesco Momentum and it seems to be running happily.

Hi Jason,

yes, the general concensus is that fuels like V Power etc. work very well.

Their clean burn and cleaning power can make a noticeable difference in the smooth running of the engine.

But even if you don't want to use it every fillup, then alternating between V Power and ordinary unleaded is better than just unleaded every time.

Definitely high octane fuel. Shell, Tesco or Esso run well in both mine.
