Re: octane rating

Its about .10 cents diffrence between octanes here in the Pacific Northwest
I feel no real difference in power between 92 (which is the highest I can get) and 87

Re: Octane Mixture

so I did a small experiment on my GTi... I filled up at my course with our regular 89 to see if I could feel a difference (and in no way am I a race car driver) the only time I felt a change in power was right after take off when the turbo is just starting to build pressure, but it wasnt dramatic I had to do it a couple of times to make sure. I also felt no difference on the freeway I could still pass cars with ease while in 6th..
my conclusion being for me at least is that 89 is ok in a pinch but there is always the thought in my mind of detination from the pressure being to high so, there for my Fast will always drink the good stuff.
