No problems whatso ever.

A tankful of Optimax every once in a while would actually be a good thing.
You need at least three full tanks worth before you start to feel the difference, i have, i won't use anything else now.

i used normal petrol once since and it ran like a bag of shit til i filled it up with optimax again,

You didn't give the ECU enough time to reset itself back to lower quality fuel.

OPtimax doesn't really make any difference to the K apart from feeling slightly smoother pick up.

Not sure whether it's worth the extra 10p. It does seem to make your engine run a lot smoother (and quieter!) though.

Then again, it could be as mentioned that my ECU didn't have time to readjust - once I put a tankful of BP Super in, and it really did run like crap.

The way i see it is if you want the best out you got to put the best in.
Agreed. If your spending loads on your Zed, why use cheap crap fuel. IMO Optimax is worth paying for.
