The car that is the subject of this thread requires 91+ octane gasoline. Not sure what the cost is (I never bother to look) but I think it is closer to #2 diesel.

I've been feeding this little beast with 93. Ran some liquimoly oil for 2600 miles, Did the 3 step BG a couple hundred miles ago. Running a stage 2 tune now (+60hp and 70ft/lbs)
upgraded to 2.0 coil packs and a step colder plugs. Rid the air box and installed a silicone turbo inlet pipe with a large cone filter (didn't change air intake temp at all) I thought that it would, but I guess because the turbo being on the passenger side and running all the way to the IC on the drivers side cools it well.
Compression test came back between 125 and 130psi! The good oil used, the three step BG product, whatever, It's great! And I'm getting 30mpg
