Hey fasbond,
Stick to 93.Octane 97 is for cars with higher compression ratios.Probably after u get a turbo fixed u can tank up on 97.
But for now try out 93.Its frickin good.

97 octane at bandra and gateway thats nice , last year had some major automotive companies come in and 2005 starts off with the availabilty of high octane fuel , now auto-manuf have only one excuse not to come to india and thts becoz of the roads here but im sure that will change too
looks like a good year ahead

Hey bhp,
That is not as much a problem.Just head to ur local mechanic with just very little fuel in the car,and ask him to drain and clean the fuel tank.Then start with Speed 91 or 93.And stay constant on one.

I would suggest consistency in Octane levels while filling up. In my Vtec and Merc, its the Speed93 - religiously.
