Hi all,
I just put some petrol in for the first time since I got my Forester XT......I wasn't sure what grade to go for so I used 95.
Should I be using 98, is 91 acceptable? It says premium non the fuel cap door but doesn't say the octane and I think 91 might be considered premium in the US?
We only have 2 in the UK, 95 is normal and 98 is premium I think!

95 RON minimum in Australia and the UK, and preferably 98 RON.

The US fuel rating is MON and not RON - 91 MON is roughly equivalent to 95 RON.

That makes a lot more sense now!
Will stick to 95 I think, maybe with an occasional tank of 98 if I have a long drive planned

What Pete said. 95 is 'premium' in Australia

I like to run 108 octane in the form of e85.
