Take ot of leave it -- I really don't care.
But I AM living proof that it can be done with no ill effects.
Audi has to warranty the cars for 60k miles, which means their
service and operational recomendations are going to err on the
side of safety. You figure that running 87 octane fuel they may
see 10% of their engines repaired under warranty, where running 91
octane, they may see 3%. That 7% difference is a big deal to
Audi, so they err on the conservative side and specify a minimum
RON of 91.
Run whatever you want.
