Let me start by saying you guys have a great thing going here - very helpful info and ideas happening!
Haven't actually taken possession of my Jetta yet, but I was wondering what sort of fuel and/or treatments/additives are you guys running?
I'll be getting the 1.4 TSI, and pump gas is either 92 or 95 octane, looking at maybe boosting to 98 or so . . . . what do you guys think?
I run 93 Octane in my 2.5L SE w/ Conv.
Doesn't matter what gas I run, still gets **** gas mileage. Though there is a slight increase in responsiveness and power with 93 over 89
Our 98 is their 93-94.
And to answer your question, you should be pumping 98RON on your 1.4TSI assuming that is the Euro-spec twincharged engine. Pump 95RON on occasion but never pump anything below 95! You will damage your engine. These twinchargers are not meant to run below 95.
Thread starter when do you collect your car? I'm from Trinidad myself and hopin to collect my jetta this week or next week depending on how soon the registration can be completed.
Ziggyboy is right. Nothing less than our premium 95 should be used or else you'll end up with knocking.
