The japanese market cars run on 100ron petrol, over here our best is 98ron, with the use of octane booster its possible to raise the level, the only safe way is to have the ecu remapped to run on shells finest.

The down side if this isnt done is the costly engine rebuild !

I have no doubt that nelson will be able to fill you in more

Hi Mate,
Unimpressed with speck of UK compared to import, folding mirrors, rear wash wipe air con,(standard )
So much so that I imported my own T25 Forester in 2000 it has Lece seats arm rests all round, climate control, cruise control, VV timing all standard on this model from Japan 98 in the year.
5 years latter and still driving without any probs.
Julie and myself have imported 8 cars into the country in the last year and 6 of those being Imprezas and I have heard about problems with fuel but have yet to come face to face with it, the only problems we have had are model reports very expensive and hard to get if you donít know how.
In my opinion if you drive any car flat out day in day out, eventually you will pay the price.
Key is to give as much TLC in service and maintenance as you would to anything you treasure.
