    Since ur r driving an ultimate driving machine, why save on petrol? Use vpower or 98. My old Sunny also use 98.

    Anyway, check user manual which is most likely in glovebox.

    I have tested 92 RON and it is the worst petrol for any car. They should make it a criminal offence for anyone caught buying it.

    Seriously, my car experienced lots of knocking when I tested a full tank some time back. Switched back to 95 immediately.

    Dear Pengful,

    well i ws driving the cefiro v6 and civic vti and was using the RON 92 for about 8 years. i did not experience knocks but off course its abit sluggish. Howveer when i tried it on my wife's jazz, obvious knocks was experienced. But i will definetly heed your advice to take the RON 95 FOR MY BMW. Thanks Bro.

    Use Ron 98 & definitely no knock. If one to drive like Ah Beng Driver, use V-power. Best in Singapore, JB & some say Batam.

    I cannot believe the co-incidence. I was also driving a Cefiro (A33) then changed to a Civic (FD1) and now E90. It was sluggish on my Cefiro but definitely knocking on my Civic. I don't want to take chances with my bimmer. 95 should be the minimum as no point saving on 92.

    HAHAHAH really small world ...yap real coincidence i was driving the last version of cefiro j31 i think and previously is the vti which i forgot what code. True, i will change to ron 95 for my e90 and my wife's jazz. Maybe i can join you guys in one of the meetups but i am not a person who mob cars. always just drive stock. gettign old...hehehehhe

    Hi guys,

    Does your engine knock when on 95?
    Mine knocks once a while, like few clicking sound when moving off even when on 98 therefore dare not go with 95.

    Nope. Your problem may be a timing problem.
