    i use 93 octane...then again if i don't my engine knocks louder than Kirsty Ally bangin on the refridgerator door:eek:
    but if you have no need for higher octane just save your money and get some mid grade.

    95 is suggested because you got a built motor or do you have a brand new car? ive never heard of a car that is suggested to use 95, what kind of car you got?

    I use 91 as well, my shit will knock with 89.

    Lol just messing around Bro!

    Yeah I read in the FSM for an SR20DET equipped S14 and it stated that 95 octane is the recomended gasoline for the motor.

    I also have the boost turned up a bit, so 93 is pretty much what I want to use to be Safe.

    However, i would TOTALLY use 95 if it was still sold . . .

    thats not the US Octane rating... there is a difference


    so (JDM 95 octane) x 0.95 = (90.25 US octane)

    Good info E. However i think i will stick with 93 (even though i have been educated :)).

    Wow, so i guess the US actually gets better gas than a lot of other places?

    Thank God for knock-crazy mullet mobiles.
