Got confirmation on this from someone who blends the gas at Petrotrin. Super is 92-93 RON.

According to my owners manual, I should be good to go with super esp when rolling in traffic.

Trinilex I may do like you and mix the premium and super.


:lol: you gone straight to the source. It's marked on the pumps in the gas station too.

Did the source mention what premium actually is? 95-96? Higher?

Sweeks, I have a VW, but was considering the BMW.... From research some models have it in the manual Ron 92 some have Ron 95....
Another thing I checked was the USDM market and SDM as our fuel is very close to the SDM quality.

Some instances yes 92 Ron; but my opinion is never a full tank

But just my views

If you want a healthy engine and its high compression, premium for it.

I'll ask again.. How come people in countries where there may only be 91 available own these cars for years with no trouble? The manual states 95 or higher recommended but that doesn't mean it won't work with lower octane.. The ecu will compensate for the difference.

Other countries may get different maps. Can't just assume because they have 91 that our cars made to use 91 as well.

The ecu will compensate yes..mechanically the timing remains and will put more stress on valvetrain and/piston rings/ pistons... it wasnt designed to run so for long periods...additionally different markets have different engine codes and software programming for a reason
