    I was at the local autoshop and they were telling me that since i have a k03 turbo and its only a 4 cyl that i could save money by using 87 or 89 instead of 91, yet the sticker tells me to use 91. Just wondering if there is any truth to that

    So I finally got around to buying some more VP M5 Methanol to mix w pump gas. I used a 5:1 ratio of 94 octane and M5. I did two pulls, the first set here was at 25 PSI, the second was at 29 PSI (this is on a 60-1 T3/T4 in case anyone is wondering) Timing was set at 25 degrees advance and I...

    On a recent trip from north Georgia to Texas I decided to compare my fuel economy. In this unscientific trip I started with a full tank of 87 octane Shell that had 10% ethanol. On day one I drove south on mostly interstate roads using my cruise set at 68-69 mph. My 2000 1.8t auto got an...

    Just for the hell of it I filled up my V6 B5.5 5-sp, with 87 a few weeks ago. Not a knock, rattle or ping out of the motor. I have since filled it up another 5 or 6 times with 87 and its still all good. The only thing I've noticed is that I am getting about 20 miles less per full tank. I think...

    I just found this locator tool on Sunoco's website for their 100 octane pump gas. I figured a lot of people would probably like to give it a tr, especially if you have a 100 octane program. Here it is: Overview - Sunoco 260 GT100 Locations Lucky for me I will be driving right by one of these...
