    I regularly traverse the skyway (at least once a month). My problem is I can't go beyond 140 anymore. Because when I do, I have difficulty controlling the steering wheel
    Once a month on Skyway is enough.

    I didn't say to redline your engine, just hit 6000 rpm or below the redline if your redline is 6000 rpm. It will not blow up your Corolla's engine. The car's ECU is smart enough to force a fuel cutoff once you hit the redline so it will not rev much higher.

    No need to go that fast, keep it cruising at a higher rev range than normal. Maybe cruising at 120 kmh for an extended period will do. Bring the car to NLEX or SCTEX once in a while. I suggest you traverse the Subic-bound part of SCTEX. The Clark-Floridablanca stretch is long enough to satisfy one's urge to floor the pedal and hit some really unlawful speeds.

    Your engine wont blow up. Its designed to hit the red line (they have a safety margin built in).

    Nope, that's too short a time even if you hit 6k rpm on a rapid acceleration. Mausok? Diesel ba vehicle mo? If gas, maybe your engine is burning oil or your intakes/injectors dirty.

    Kung nasa highway (SLEX/NLEX) ka naman almost weekly, oks na yun since you cruise at a faster speed than being stuck in traffic.

    You can redline your car even without going past triple digit speeds. Whats important is the revs, not the speed - so just hold the gear (for your CVT Altis use the manual mode) and keep it in high rpms for a few kilometers to burn off carbon deposits.

    I just want to share about the Premium Unleaded 95RON of Clean Fuel.

    I'm still using a 2008 Toyota Avanza J with 90K+ kms already. I use to fill up with Shell V-Power Nitro, Caltex Platinum, Unioil Premium 95 and even PTT Blue 95. I decided to try the Clean Fuel since it's relatively cheaper (around 2/liter). I frequently travel from Manila to Pampanga so the NLEX is a common road for me averaging 90 to 100kph during my trips.

    So far, the Premium Unleaded 95RON of Clean Fuel is IMHO, at par with Caltex Platinum and Shell V-Power Nitro but slightly better than PTT Blue 95 and way better than Uniloil Premium 95.

    Nothing more to say.

what gasoline do you use.
