Maxol E5 (no E5 in Galway) is higher octane so your car should run better on it, (more responsive), not sure if my car became any heavier on it when I changed to it. currently get 460km to a full tank and car sits in traffic for 1/2 to 3/4 hour 3 mornings a week on E5 (I get E5 brought down from dublin).

Topaz makes the car run like s**t. The car seemed to kinda hop at times and felt sluggish.

never had any problems with Esso, Texaco or Emo.

Funy you say that about TOPAZ, in Thurles theres not many places to get good petrol and Topaz is the best of a bad bunch around here, But my car has been ideling like a c**t for the last month and i never taught about the petrol, Because i get 150-160kms to €20. I might change petrol station.

Applegreen do E5 now? Cool, I pass by many of them and their prices are quite good. I usually had to settle for Topaz.

The same as regular petrol,

Wouldn't use applegreen as i presume and i could be wrong that they source their petrol in the same place as tesco and i've always found tesco petrol to be cr@ap

Tesco is not E5 though. I get very poor performance from any non-E5 petrol (Texaco, Esso, etc.) so I avoid it if at all possible.
