I'm not sure myself, i tried doing some research but shell hong kong site doesn't list what ron V power is. Just kept repeating marketing shit. if it caused an overboost issue, would that mean that shell has a lower octane than caltex platinum? or would it be the other way around, haha. I would assume that it was lower since lower octane gas has higher combustability but less stable combustions and i'm guessing thats what happened.
