I also use 91 octane as this the best you can get in Chandigarh. When in Delhi, I may go in for the 93 octane.

I feel the main reason for engine problems in skoda cars is because of the use of high octane petrol/diesel which is not recommended for use by skoda.
People who used high octane fuel had stalling problems in the car.

your kidding right? lol high octane fuel will infact make skoda engines run a lot better and lessen the chances of anything going wrong.

what they recommend you dont use is fuel with additives (which harm the engine) like speed, high speed diesel.
