What grade of gas do you use, or do you use diesel?

Noticed some comments stating how only regular gas is needed, for everything. The computer will "adjust". True it will.

While MPG and power is reduced, and emissions are increased.

Most cars I've owned that used 87oct, ran better with 91/93. And the increased MPG offset the price difference.

I own 2 high specific output turbo cars (125hp/L). Both need at minimum Premium. Mandatory.

Also use Diesel, Bio-diesel. Far better in every regard.

I'm a pro tech, with decades of pro experience, including engineering background, and own a repair shop focusing on high end and performance cars.

The gas debate will never end. Until we're out of gas.....
