Petrol 91/95 RON
I just bought a 2000, 1.8 ts GTV, beautiful and extra special as it is the only one in my city (500,000 people).
I have spent the last 2 days getting used to it and simply enjoying it a lot, and I stopped to question myself as to which fuel to use. Here in Germany we have really a choice of 3:
Normal unleaded - 91 RON
Super unleaded - 95 RON
Shell V Power - 100 RON
As most people on this forum seem to use "Normal", so did I. However I have just read that in England "normal" is 95 RON. Can someone confirm that please?
And, if I am using 91 RON, is that ok for a 1,8l TS? or should i really use the 95?
Is it simply a calculation of power/price/mpg? Or is there a "It'll ruin your engine" consideration?
