Yup... almost barfed.

At that mileage, I think it is inevitable even if you drive the hell out of the car.

Do a few 3k+ rpm jaunts on the highway.

No pain in leaving the car in 5th and cruising along for 20 minutes

Surpised that they haven't done port and direct injection like the Toyobaru.

There are ways around this but you leave 3-5mpg off the table and this is something VW doesnt want to do.

I actually believe this as well. Premium fuels contain their blend of detergents and additives while the 87 fuel is all the same ( considering all the stations are equally as busy and etc)

Incorrect. Detergent packs are detergent packs. Octane is Octane. Two different and very separate things.

I meant Shell 93 vs Mobil 93.

Obviously octane is different from 87 to 93.

But comparing between companies its really the detergent pack.
