'Higher Additive Content'

Does this not refer to the additional additives that are added to 'Branded Fuels' that may not be present in 'Supermarket Fuels' ?

Who knows it is a bit vague, presumably it is referring to the anti knocking additive. I use shell v power or asda momentum.

Cheap fuels generally have less cleaning additives, branded fuels mostly have more and are specially formulated for newer engines.

Yeah got it done today!
How long did it take ?
Currently sat in dealers waiting for the work to be done, around 1h30m waiting time they tell me.

Be interesting to know how it goes after the update. I wonder if they've altered the torque map to produce more low down pull?

Mine certainly seems better after the recent service and the Dexos 1 Gen 2 oil but still has that slight hesitation/hiccup when pulling away when cold.

Just booked mine in for next Tuesday, asked them how long it would take they said allow about 2 hours depends on their download internet speed at the time they do it,also asked to take both sets of car keys.

Mine's booked in for next Wednesday. Local dealer doing a pick up and drop off.

Thanks for the heads up on taking both sets of keys Albany. Suppose both keys will need sync-ing to the new ECU map?
