Just question ... What petrol is best to use in the cx30... Standard unleaded or super/premium unleaded.. ?
Any benefit from the super unleaded, offsetting the extra cost?
We'll be looking to give the car it's first fill up this week..

We just put regular 95 in but only from Esso (Nectar points), BP or Shell. I never, ever use supermarket fuel. Don't let anyone tell you petrol is the same because it's not - it all might come on the same tanker but it's the refining that makes the differences. Every now and again, when my tank is almost empty I fill up with Shell 99 for a treat especially if I've got a long journey to do.

I used to use nothing but Shell 99 in my modded Jap cars because I thought they did feel more sprightly.

Steve, with your car being brand new you'll not benefit from any engine cleaning properties from using 98 or 99 so I'd stick with regular 95 from Shell, BP or Esso.

I swear by Shell.

Partly due to the marketing i've been fed as an enthusiast and actual information of what goes into their fuels. Also many serious car guys I know swear by it too.

From my experience, the regular grade is fine. This is not a bad question though, because in the CX-5 turbo, it does make a difference, even though the car can take either grade of petrol. In that car you get better performance out of the higher octane fuel.
