    Eh, I see it as having roughly the same power my bugeye probably had, but no lag. Gas mileage is the same on both engines (i.e awful). I guess it doesn't bother me since I was used to filling up the WRX with premium anyway, and my wife's car gets 50mpg on regular, so it counterbalances anything I drive. I didn't buy the Outback so I could use regular fuel.

It's more work for the moderators, because now someone should have to come in and merge this thread with the others.. when you could have just posted in the other thread and keep that one going (one which already contains more information from the start). It's also more work for the members of the forum to look through multiple threads on the same topic for information, when it could all be found on one place.

    Whatever gas you use in whatever car it doesn't help your car one bit to use a higher octane. Waste of money. Nissan says to put 87 in my Xterra. I put 87. For the STi I'll put 93 though even though I'll be stock as I believe it's recommended.

    Only datalogs can confirm what you claim. 93 octane is an absolute necessity with the STi.

    I agree. Point is to follow what the manufacturer says. Higher octane doesn't make car faster. Its purpose is to prevent detonation.

    That's is a definitely true statement.
    Also it will vary car to car and state to state.
    I have had varying results from the Big oil company's. And I settled on shell v power, my car likes that best and has the best data log results.
    But that's just me and my car. You could have a completely different experience in another part of the country. I'd say data log and see whats best for you and your car.

    We have one gas station near my house with 102 octane. $7.00 a gallon. I see the V8 guys filling up there all the time.

    Who was this directed to? Subaru requires 91+ octane in the WRX/STI (whatever the highest grade is that's available in your region). They also require 91+ for my H6 Outback.

    I thought 91+ was required? If 93 is required, that sucks for everyone in Arizona/California/Nevada.

    Dealer told me 91 is sufficient.
