Servicing and fuel

Hi everyone, I've just got a 98 wrx sti and just have a couple of questions as I've never owned a car like this before. The bloke I bought it from said he had it serviced every 4500 miles or every 6 months is this necessary or is that a bit excessive? Also it's always been run on and was mapped using shell v power would it start running rough if I put tesco momentum 99 in?

Re: Servicing and fuel

oil change at that frequencey and a check over is advisable, as far as proper service scheduled items just go on the year or 10k as per book.

run it on vpower 100% of the time, once mapped for a fule it wont like others.

in an emergency you can use others but take it steady and run it off boost till the crap fuel is used and new stuff in (dont forget mixing new and old will still leave a bit of old in)
