Hello everyone! So a few months back I had asked some of you about the WRX and based on everything I told you guys a lot of you suggested that I don't get a WRX and others really recommended it. Well today I went out and purchased a 2014 WRX base model with a few nice extra features including the short throw shifter, all weather floor mats, fog lights etc. It seems like a great car and the price was very fair! (I'm going to go pick it up this Tuesday)
Anyway I do have one question and that pertains to the fuel. Now in the owner's manual it states that the car runs on 91 octane but can temporarily use 87 octane. I understand that, but there is no mention of mid grade gas or 89 octane from where I am in NY. Can the WRX run on 89 octane? If so how will it hinder performance or the overall functionality of the car? It is a good idea to use 89 octane in a WRX? Is it safe? Will it damage the car in any way?
Thanks for your input
