It's all down to how you drive. They generally don't mean you'll use more fuel, but you'll find yourself putting your foot down more often which will obviously change things
No need for 97+RON until you get up to Stage 3.

Its going to use slightly more fuel when your hitting full boost but driving sensibly round town mines doing around 24-25mpg on bluefin stage 1.

Superunleaded not needed. But hey who buys an ST for economy!

i know it had been documented a lot on here but how was your clutch with the bluefin as most people say you really have to be careful even with stage1 ?? i always lift my foot completely off the pedal between changing gear but just wanting to get people view on people who have actually got one done with there standard car just running stage1 ??

thanks john

I got no problem with my clutch, I can put my foot down in 6th from 1.5k and it pulls like a train (no I dont drive like this all the time its an example, before any one troll at me) Not really noticed anything fuel wise I still use the cheapest petrol possible. Really happy with the performance it gave me, its a totally different car, more noise from the induction kit to which i like

As everyone has said, bf stage 1 or 2 is fine on normal fuel and std car. My mpg dropped by 2 mpg after remapping but that's just cos of the extra smiles I get with the extra boost

Im running a standard car but always put 97+Ron fuel in. Going to get a Bluefin also I think. What kind of increase will it give? Have a mongoose cat back fitted and 3" decat?

I made 252 with the map and no other mods when I had that set up. Your decat should see you a bit more. Maybe upto 260.

Mine just made 265bhp and 350lb/ft with Scorpion cat-back on stage 1.
I run it on Shell V-Power all of the time so maybe that's why the good figures.
