RE: quattro-digest V3 #664
I use 89 in my car. The 87 would ping, I believe (never put it in) and I
really don't like spending the $$$ for 91 or higher octane. I get 25+ on the
highway for mileage with the car.

Is using 89 octane okay with the A4Q? I get similarly bad mileage with my
auto tran A4Q. (15-20mpg). Maybe I can at least switch to 89 octane from 92 to
save some money. I think the documentation for gas requirement is conflicting.
The fuel door stick says 92, but the user manual I thought says something
