So done a bit of reading online on what fuel to put into my RS3.

Some claim you MUST use the higher octane fuel in these cars, while some say it makes no difference albeit potentially less power output!?

I went for the cheaper unleaded option instead of Shell's V-Power today. Am I being stingy?

Views on this appreciated

cheers

You'll find you probably get 2-3mpg more which will offset the difference in cost so I would do it.

Premium all the way for me.However I use Tesco 99 Ron as it's generally cheaper.
