First an foremost there is no expiration date on petrol in a tank under proper storage conditions, secondly premium fuel is stored in lower capacity tanks hence refuelling is faster and evaporation losses are lesser.

Please update your friend

IndianOil's 100 Octane petrol is now available in Hyderabad, it is priced at Rs.160 per litre.

This petrol is produced in IOC’s Mathura refinery. Experts say this premium grade fuel is best suited for BS VI vehicles

It may seem like buying higher octane “premium” gas is like giving your car a treat, or boosting its performance. But take note: the recommended gasoline for most cars is regular octane. In fact, in most cases, using a higher octane gasoline than your owner's manual recommends offers absolutely no benefit. It won't make your car perform better, go faster, get better mileage, or run cleaner. Your best bet: listen to your owner's manual.

The only time you might need to switch to a higher octane level is if your car engine knocks when you use the recommended fuel. This happens to a small percentage of car.

After reading this I looked up the owner manual.

Can someone help me with what fuel I am supposed to use with my car? I have been using good old regular petrol but I looked this up in my owner manual and it recommends atleast 95% octane. Am I reading this right?
