Very funny to see people debating fuel on the internet. . .

I only use 95 in my R, mainly Shell but sometimes Engen and BP. The engines we get in the 7R and 7.5R have been detuned for the local market by around 20hp ATF.

Eish 1.4tsi problems.....i Kakked a bit when i bought my 1.4tsi twincharged 2012........with its notorious issues of piston failure......

Symptoms start with lumpy idle, misfire, oil usage and then piston number 3 failure......upon more research VW's software update recall did work, but they will they will come up with every excuse not to fix your car once the piston does go boom.

Then even more research with the UK boys and their Twincharged Cupra's having the exact same issues they found a good software upgrade was the answer, So i chatted to Revo and a stage 1 upgrade had everything firing optimally........I did it just as a precaution, and 2 more mates of mine did it on their 1.4tsi motors too. 3 years in and going strong.......but regardless to all i've mentioned here...its a lucky packet motor for sure.
I have actually heard of guys saying this before - doing the software sorted out the AFR's and helped prevent it (or so I am told).
Have any you guys had this issue sorted out with a software fix instead of having to take the whole engine and the risk attached to that?

Please advise

Once the ring land is damaged , No software can fix it , The software is more of a precaution before getting to that point of damaging the ring lands.

Not sure if it was confirmed but the ring land damage seems to be from detonation

Surprisingly one would think that the clever ECU's safety features would prevent this.
