95 RON

Hi all,

I think I'm gonna be ordering a M135i here in Thailand this week but I just wanted to be sure about the minimum octane that this car requires to run at full capability. I'm kinda worried because all the Audi S and RS lines and the Volkswagen R here are running way below their specs on dyno due to the gasoline here which is rated 95 RON. Would that be a problem for the M135i? I'd really appreciate it if anyone in the knows can chip in on this issue.

Thanks,
Appreciate 0

Dear toddbbot,

I am assuming you called or are sure you are adding in the specified RON95 as that in the international standard. I wasn't so sure, so I called.

I am not sure the experience you have with other cars, but based on the May issue of Performance BMW Magazine the dyno pulled 341 hp (<-- memory ) out of stock M135i. I am sure the gasoline supplier in your region should provide something similar in fuel quality as RON 95.

RON 95 should be OK
RON98 is best
You should have the 'allowed' fuel sticker on the inside your filler cap
