    I have just become aware that I'm dumb as shit and thought we have 83 up here when we have 87 at the lowest. I also dont know how to delete a post, sorry

    No but go back to 90 and your car will love you. Just stay out of the boost

    Thanks for the response. I just realised I'm dumb as hell and invented 83 octane, turns out I've been using 87 the whole time wich at least the manual says we can run. In any case thanks for the response

    87 is fine, you could drive it for the next 500,000 miles on 87 with no issues.

    Every efi vehicle since the 80s can handle 87 just fine.

    Under certain conditions, you will lose power on 87 versus 91+, but it won't hurt anything.

    These turbo cars enjoy 91 octane, minimum.
