So i am not sure if this is related to the V Gas or not. I'm always buying gas at Shell, since i have start using V power i can feel performance but i feel that my gas mileage is decreasing too. Did anyone experience this?

No.... I havnt.... if your noticing a increase in fuel consumption... I'm keep that in mind for later when something goes wrong...(I'm not trying to speak badely upon your car... just as a heads up.. trust me....... its happend to me... "car runs great... I feel more and more power... untill... it over compresses... and blows... dont ask... not even BMW couldnt figure that one out.. but something about over compression.)... But.. since my problem made it all the way back to Germany.... to their engineers... and they still didnt have a clue what went wrong. I highly dought its a big problem.

If you feel more gains.. and the gains in power out weigh the lost of gas mileage... keep going there and getting gas!...

I think it's all in your mind.........

... do you think there is a connection between you 'feeling' extra performance and your mileage geting worse? I think the connection is your accelerator being pressed into the floor! :lol:

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>
