    As with all the ethanol scandal we are having to use different petrol statios.
    However the issues seems to arise that different fuel is giving different economy (MPG) also performance is greatly affected by using different fuels I would like to run tests on fuel and need members who a obd 2 device that can log data. Pm me or reply here I am in the process of creating a form template to use

    The only thing I can suggest that might throw this into disarray is that everyone should be running the same engine etc, otherwise it might prove difficult. However I have noticed over the last 500 something miles in my car that fuel economy seems to hovering around 34mpg mostly mixed, but I did a trip to Manchester and back (Oswestry to Salford Quays) there and back achieved, again around 34mpg speed was between 70-80

    I agree but that's not the only findings I'm looking at there will be other factors I am looking to compare fuel performance and distance I know MPG in winter will be all over.

    Hi
    V2 of test report
    https://www.mediafire.com/?i29qvjou601cc53

    Here is how to carry out, wait until fuel light comes on drive to petrol station as soon as light comes on add £10,20 or 30 of fuel record start mileage and mileage when light is back on. Enter results into spreadsheet and post or pm me for email address
    Will be interesting to see what results we get from this.
