    Nooo, I meant as in hi octane being 30 and petrol 70.
    But that's when we are receiving fairly clean petrol..
    Nowadays petrol situation is too bad...
    So using ratio
    hi octane : petrol
    80 : 20

    10:30 is ideal. But these days im using pure e-10 full tanks.

    edit, and ya the fuel quality is realy bad these days, we dont even smell petrol now it smells real bad.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    I use 100% hi octane. The higher the ratio of hi-octane, the better.

    I asked honda engineer about it and he recommended 1/3 hi-octane and 2/3 regular fuel to be good. I personally prefer and have got better results with 50:50

    Your statement couldn't be more further from the truth. In my cultus, I could feel significant difference between hi-octane and petrol. The most visible difference was in engine knocking which reduced considerably. The acceleration also improved. Even now when sometimes I get it filled with petrol, the degradation in performance is clearly there
