I was just thinking what fuel octane can you guys get in your countrys and what do you use, and i mean fuel you can just get at most servos. Here in Aus we have 92,95,98 i run 98 just because it makes me feel better really :shrug: prob only need 95 but they do have 100 in japan and thats where the motor is from. I was watching the episode of top gear when they take the 3 supercars to the bridge in franch and when jeremy fills up his GT you can see on the filler cap it says 91+ so im guessing 92 is good fuel for you guys?

USA uses (R+M)/2 aka ( RON + MON ) / 2 ...

Average of (Research + Motor ) = USA Octanes.

I find 92 Octane without 10% EtOH gives slightly better gas mileage than 87 or 89... The EtOH always decreases fuel economy..

wow it changes a lot between states, so does this mean my probitator chip could be tuned a bit more aggressive because i run 98 :p

your 98 is most likely closer to our 92/94 Octane we see in the states :p

I get 93 whenever I can but alot of times only 91 is avalible, and If my tank is empty in bumfuck egypt sometimes I am forced to fill up with 89, in which I only put enough gas to go to the next station.
