Re: 89 octane OK in 2.8L V6?

To:   quattro
I think the real question is, why bother? What are you trying to save
exactly, a couple o'bucks a week? The manual in my '92 100 specifies
Premium only, though I believe 94+ V6's can run what you brung and as low
as you want. My car is both as strong as steel and as fragile as glass; I'm
not about to tempt fate and try to cut corners. I'd suggest that you follow
the recommendation of your owner's manual. Period. NEXT QUESTION!    <-
geez, I'm a dick today.
