    I asked the VW Canada rep at the June Jitter Bug show today about the premium gas requirement, and he said that although the car will run on regular, you will not get the power or mileage (economy) of premium, and they did not recommend regular gas.

    There's been a lot of talk about this on other forums (I've got a diesel so it doesn't worry me but I have been watching) and from what I see it's actually happiest on 91 octane. A few guys are filling with premium initially and then refilling at half tank with regular, next fill premium etc so it in theory averages out to 91. Sounds like a lot of trouble to me but hey, as I say, I don't have the problem.

    I put premium in mine usually.. As mentioned - I think it's OK to put lower grades in you just don't get the performance...

    I hate gas prices... I travel to Europe a lot so I see what really bad prices look like.. Whenever I gas up I here I imagine my friends in England saying "Oh shut up... You "yanks" still pay half of what we do"..

    the manual says regular gas or premium. its up to you but performance will be poorer and regular gas is "dirty".

    Something for the wife

    Great - something for the wife to complain about. She hates it when one of our cars requires Premium fuel.
