It is very important to follow this directive.

And if you aren't running at least 91oct (US (RON/MON)/2), you may have to reduce the user torque settings from the default values. This does not mean to run anything less than premium grade fuel. But only applies if your premium grade fuel is less-than-ideal.

since you products users are all over the different forums, I think you should either email them all directly if you have their emails in a database or make an important post at any forum you can think of that your users may frequent specifiying the required octane levels.

I'm sure there are plenty of users out there like the OP that did not know using 91 octane w/ higher torque settings is not a good idea.

Just a suggestion to help out both you and your clientèle.

I hope that made sense......Jim Beam is good
