I have noticed that my 98.5 A4 6cyl will run just fine on both the middle
grade and the higher grade. However, I get better gas mileage with the
premium fuel - enough that it outweighs the increase purchase price. YMMV.
P.S. It might run a *smidgen* better on premium, but I have no quantitative
evidence and it's probably just in my head. :)
