      Question Fuel Recommendation?

      Hello everyone! Im a proud new owner of a 2015 V60 3.0T Polestar!!! And I知 wondering what your recommendations are for octane rating and fuel brand? I understand that the Polestar manual says to run 93 octane, only run 91 in circumstances when you have no choice. What do you guys think? My Options are 91 Shell V-Power (No ethanol) Petro Canada 94 (10% ethanol) and Esso 93 (10% ethanol) Looking for advice, Thanks in advance!

      I run 91 AKI as my everyday fuel and blend to 93 for canyon days and to 95+ for track days using 100 octane racing fuel for the blend.

      Here is a octane calculator tool (one of many): http://www.wallaceracing.com/octane-mix-calc.php

      I only run 93. Wouldn't recommend anything less unless there was no other option.
