Hi all first post and I just was wondering what fuel type everyone was using?

I have heard that some use 87 and others swear by 91 octane.

The only problem I see is that as the price of gas increases, the amount of people actually using 91 will diminish and that the premium will start getting "old".

How bad is using 87 or even 89?

And what about octane boost??

I haven't even taken delivery of my MkV and I have tons of questions for all you drivers......

Thanks ;)

Thanks for the input all....

I'm trading in my Red Nissan Titan crew cab for the GTI and it only wants regular unleaded but it requires A LOT of it!!!

It only gets 14-16 MPG and it has a 28 gallon tank.... that's an $84 fill up from empty @2.999!!! Although it has a very nice Fast... 305HP - 280 at wheels, it's not a slow poke.

I am SO looking forward to the "REAL" Fast....... Can't wait till tomorrow it had better be there. They already have put it off from Friday.... and the weather here is not supposed to good in the morning... We'll see what happens 8)
