You must be poor.

Please stop with the barnyard fantasy good ol' boy philosophy. If you can't afford to properly run your car, then sell your German POS.

Which brings me to my next point. Worst case scenario of premium fuel costs you $.20 cents more than regular, you're paying $3.20 more per tank for a 16-gallon fill-up. Can you seriously not afford three bucks a tank?

You'll also get poorer mileage on lower octane and less power (detect knock and pull timing as designed), if your car is specified to run optimally on 91 octane (like our cars are) So by one being a barnyard boy, one is actually hurting both their mileage and their wallet.

OP. following your owners manual is key.
