One public holiday was at MBS around 10+am. Saw a long queue outside Swatch. Asked the last person (1 auntie, not chio) queueing for what. She said "don't know". 

Maybe singapore lang likes to queue. FOMO. 😁

now serious question: what for put octane booster huh?

if you put octane booster in RON95, might as well fill with RON98 in the first place?

And that is only if your car have the ECU Fuel-air map that can optimize the engine performance with the higher octane.

Yeah. The octane booster is kinda pointless here when we have RON 98 and Vpower widely available at the pump station.

It is more for places or countries that only have low octane petrol like Ron91 available at the pump. What I see is angmoh go on a road trip to the countryside and they buy this octane booster on standby.

You have to reset the ecu to utilize it.

I recall some "clever" guy tried to use butane(fuel used for outdoor cooking) to boost octane level in the petrol stored in his car's gas tank. End up blowing up the grab car he was using when he stop for a cig break. LoL

He lied to everyone, police and news media saying that he was trying to kill himself.

This car's compression ratio is only 10:1 NA. Boosting the octane level wont do anything significant.
