I heard many brother here had problem with Shell especially 95 but I've been using it for more than 2 years without any issue. In between, I did try Shell 98 for few months but did not notice any big improvement in performance.
I also top up in Shell 97 or V Power in Malaysia occasionally.

I'm also on esso 95 since day 1. I did come across a CEL situation once, sent it down to the pod and had it looked at. They mentioned one of the sensors faulty, had it replaced. Not sure if it was fuel induced problem though, no one could really point a finger to the actual problem causing the fault.

No different for my ride using 95, 98 or VP until full load.

I dont think its directly related to the petrol grade. Interestingly we hv yet to see the c5 thp and c4 thp having this problem.

I use Caltex 95 and Shell 95 for my CP4. so far no issue on sensor faults or carbon buildup.

Better acceleration on Shell. Not much diff on fc. I get about 8.5km/l mixed driving. Usually first of the block at traffic light but not at jack rabbit speed. More of paying more attention and faster response to light changes.

I hope every driver out there can be like you.
It is frustrating when you follow someone behind who's taking own sweet time to move off.
