Cheaper V-Power tomorrow only
#1
Another find from Pistonheads.

Not sure if anyone actually uses V-Power in their Berlingo (I don't know what else you might have lurking in your garage) but thought I would share this:

Cheap V-Power
2005 Berlingo Multispace 1.6i Desire (Iron Grey)

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

I used to use V-Power in my Octavia it ran quieter, Its too expensive to buy now.
Does anyone use it in the Berlingo?

We always use BP Ultimate, filled the Berlingo up when we picked it up from the dealers, day 1, and never use anything else in our 3 previous and 2 present vehicles. It gives better mpg, smoother power delivery and the exhaust stays clean unlike the supermarket junk. and it's well worth the extra imo Smile

Well, I filled my last tankful with V-Power, the first since the remap to find out if it makes any difference now.

When it was standard trim I used V-Power a couple of times and found that the MPG dropped markedly.

How odd, you had a reduction in mpg Confusedcratch:, Iv'e never found that, always finds an extra 3-4 mpg, and you've probably seen the vids on Fifth Gear etc, showing with both Shell V and BP Ultimate, about 5bhp increase as well. Maybe it's something to do with engine design but have had success with Honda, BMW, and now in the XTR 110.

Hope the remap works well for you.Smile

I filled up with V-Power last Wednesday put in £68 the tank still had about 1/4 in it.
I find it makes the engine run quieter and smoother.
