That's not really true... I know many people who say 'drive it like you stole it' and their cars go 190,000.Absinthe said:Break in period is usually the first 1000-1500km of your car. This is what determines whether your car is 90,000 mile car or 190,000 mile car. It's to ensure that your car delivers its normal ride quality and maximum performance.
Yes, we should be getting SuperDiesel here in NA in 2006, right? That should pave the way for all of the cool turbodiesels serving duty in Europe and Asia...Mmmm, lots of torque...bluong1 said:Europe uses Research Octane index (RON), whereas N/A uses (R+M)/2 (average between Motor and Research index).
95 RON = 91 (R+M)/2 = premium
91 RON = 87 (R+M)/2 = regular
Yes, there is a price to pay for having cleaner engine in Europe. Americans should thank Europeans, because the environment issue concern everybody.
91 Octane will not harm your car. The NA specs just ask for 89 Octane (Regualr Unleaded). The extra octane will prevent knock on your engine. From what people say, unless your engine suffers from knocking or pinging, there are no benefits from gasing up with higher octane fuel.mastermoe said:Using the tank the dealer filled up, I got about 395 Km when the red light came on.
I filled for the first time (about 50L) 91 Octane. will see what mileage I get out of that.
So you guys are saying I'll harm my car by using 91 Octane?!
