PREMIUM! 91 Octane. If you don't there is a serious decrease in performance. Also, engine life is GREATLY decreased. So if you opted for the type-s, you should definitely go with premium gas.

Always get 91 octane. If it is not available you can get 89 or even 87 but the ECU will retard the ignition leading to reduced performance and poorer fuel economy. Also consistent use of anything less than 91 will build up carbon deposits and damage the engine.Don't get anything more than 91 unless you want to waste money or decide on turbocharging or supercharging your car.

91 octane or higher. Anyone buying a high trim sports car can expect that their car only takes premium.
