Modern ECUs will automatically detune the engine to compensate for the lower RON
Are you sure IOC XP is 93octane? speed97 has been discontinued since a month

I use 97 octane for my A4 2.0 TFSI. Quite easily available in New Delhi, not discontinued at all. Only available at Bharat Petroleum though.

Since the 1.8 TSI is the same engine that powers the A4 (albeit in a very underpowered way), and Audi recommends using 97 octane fuel, I would assume the same should hold true whatever car is powered by that engine.

If Speed97 is 97 RON, then again its a problem as Audi recommends 95 RON.
Even higher octane rating is not good.

97octane wont be a problem, if u check out vw/audi/skoda forums, people use 99octane fuel with their tsi engines, 95 is the min to run the engine to it fullest
