    Fuego on Premium Unleaded?

    Hi!

    I'm restoring an 83 Fuego.
    Is there anyone out there that has trouble running a Fuego on premium unleaded petrol?

    If the Fuego is an AUS spec unmodified vehicle it can be run on standard unleaded. The AUS spec cars are low compression, and will run on 91 octane fuel. Renault issued a service bulletin to that effect in 1986. However premium ULP may enhance the performance slightly, but whether it is worth the extra expense is up to the owner.
