    Question Fuel for Alto VXR

    Dear friends,

    Please advise if I can use High-Octane fuel for my Pak Suzuki Alto VXR (model 2009).

    Also, shall I use Hi-Octane in 'neat' format or do I need to mix petrol?

    Thanks and regards.

    Yes u can. No issues. But most people recommend mixing usually in the ratio of 1:3 (1 liter of hi octane with 3 liters of super)

    Thanks bro.

    I've heard that using 'pure' hi-octane will improve performance of the engine (clean-up pipes etc.), is it true? I don't intend to use Hi-Octane fuel on regular basis, just for performance enhancement

    Any recommendations?

    Using a fuel with an octane rating higher than what the engine is designed for is not needed. However, to boost the octane rating of substandard fuel to the required level may need mixing in some percentage of a high octane component. The other situation high octane fuels can help is in reducing premature detonation die to carbon build up, but in that situation, it is only a stop gap measure before proper repairs can be done.

    I wish I was able to understand the above.

    Thanks for your response.

    Use regular, and add 30% HOBC only if the engine knocks on regular.
