hi people, picked up my st-3 at the weekend and ran it on shell 97 super unleaded,it ran realy smooth and the bluefin with scorpian exhaust and de-cat were popping and banging all day long, the trouble is were i live me only have 95ron fuel and i would have to travel 140 miles to get unleaded and odviously that would be stupid. i have big plans for my st like intercooler,cais etc and i esume the st wont run so well and maybe loose the pops and bangs running on 95ron. i have found ocatne boost on ebay taken the 95ron to 97 super unleaded,should this be ok? thanks

Researching on here it won't give benefits above 99 RON like V-Power etc but was mainly used by our cousins in South Africa to make up for lower octane fuel available there.

So should do the trick fine for what you need.

Octane booster shouldn't cause any damage, but I think you'll find it'll start to get very expensive if you're putting it in every time you fill up. You may as well just stay with 95 RON tbh. Octane booster is only really necessary if you're going to be driving the car hard (ie on track) as it affords extra protection against pre-ignition/detonation due to higher engine temperatures.
