No, I am still using Shell's V-Power.

But to be honest with you, I run my car on regular gas from Petro for 2 months and it ran just fine. I am not recommending it, but I doubt it's a huge issue as people make it to be. I heard from a couple of people who own older BMWs that they have been running regular gas for years and the cars run just fine. May be not the best performance option, but I doubt regular gas will break the engine. But again, I am no mechanic or expert on the topic.
