    what grade petrol do you use?

    Hi,

    Just wanted to check what grade petrol you use for N52, 2.5 engines?

    I saw some mention they use RON95, some use RON98.

    The SE at PML told me to use RON98.

    Cheers!

    On a 63-litre tank, the price between 95 and 98 is less than $4.35 !!!

    That's before all the affiliated discounts......

    Between V Power and 98, difference is $11.35 before all discount !!!

    Almost every other week, Shell has promotion for V-Power... thats the price of 98. My full tank lasts me 2+ weeks, so I always go for that!

    reason i asked was not cost (it is small compared to what we have paid for the car), but just wanna do what's good for the car...

    98 or V-Power it is!

    Somehow, my mind says skip those snacks and put the $4 into the petrol tank for a (mentally) better drive. Afterall, with the rampant mod virus, what's $4?
