Getting about the same range on my wrangler with the diesel but definitely "feels" a bit more torque-ier like when I first brought it in.

Her family has been in the international fuel business for a long time.
She would have access to pretty good info.

That said- there is quite a lot of hidden reality in this whole deal

So a few people saying fuel doing better?

But u remember that just as prices were rising, thd fuel burning out faster.

Next ting, they had tweaked thd fuel to not last as long, and now, it's back to normal.

Speaking to reporters after the launch of the fuel verification programme, at NP’s Munroe Road, Chaguanas, service station on Wednesday, Gopee-Scoon said the population had received superior fuel since Petrotrin’s closure and had not been “short-changed.”

Scientific proof or BS
 · Empirical evidence is the information received by means of the senses, particularly by observation and documentation of patterns and behavior through experimentation. The term comes from the Greek word for experience, ἐμπειρία (empeiría).

Can any of this "empirical" evidence be verified? Are the measurements being taken is consistent and easily reproducible ways or are people just cyakin about how they feel it wukkin? What if there were people paid to post all over social media about how much better the fuel is now?

Test data or GTFO. I'm disappointed that such a lazy article could be published. Leave the he say/ she say for social media. That article sounds like propaganda more than anything else.

Oh... and I not noticing any difference in performance but I'm also using the same lazy guesstimating as everybody else to no need to take that seriously.

I full right up zero my mileage and then check how much litres to full back up

For me I doh really care about data from anybody I want to see how much kilometres that I am getting per litre

What I am noticing is less kilometres per litre

So I am concerned of how it is affecting me directly

No they don't. I fill up to the click of the fuel nozzle and reset the odometer (km) everytime i fill up. Km ÷ $ to fill up = km/$ . Km/$ × 4.97 = km/liter . Km/liter × 3.783 = km per us gallon. Km per us gallon ÷ 1.6 = mpg. I may be wrong lol.

Update.. super knocks under high load and low rpm worse than before in my cs3 lancer. So guessing it contains less octane now.

I had a CS3 and as far as I could remember it stated RON 95+ on the fuel cover.
Aren't you using the wrong fuel to start with?

You might be suffering from clogged tea bag filters or main filter like I did. I just did another cleaning Saturday. Third time I had to do it in 2 months and this time I also had to take down the main gas filter as well and wash it out it was very clogged dirty. Car was loosing power sputtering and knocking.

Here is a few pix

Very clogged it’s sucking itself in.

Removed one Week Later just to check if it’s still a problem. You can see it here like a super fine powder.

I found a brand new Denso tea bag filter I bought and forgot I had for the Mitsubishi application. I did mine and the basket already. Were not in as bad a shape as I figured.

Having some issues with the premium fuel and my F10, last 2 fill ups ( usually fill up when the tank is at half), the fuel consumption is erratic ( from the fuel display) with the same driving. Both time filled by Duncan Village QS. Does not happen at Unipet but when filled eg: 200 at half at NP, I usually get 30km more showing than at Unipet.
The range fluctuates erratically.

I just cant understand why quality assurance issues continue to plague NP (the sole distributor).
Maybe the time has come for the public to agitate for laws which specifically address damages in case where fuel supplied doesn't meet defined minimum standards.
The motoring public just keep getting one hit after the other and with the new fuel import approach, things may very well become more risky.
