the engine will knock with lower grade gas, but I wouldn't know about that

I was getting around 650km per 70 litre tank last year(highway and city driving) this year however my mileage has gone downhill. I get maybe 550km per fill now

i only use 94
i get bad mileage because I have a heavy foot. I should get 500km/tank but what would be the fun in that.

I can normally squeeze around 300km out of my 40 litre tank
- on the highway I see around 400km... cheap to fill though...

The computer will retard the timing so there is no knocking. Running 87 won't hurt your car, it'll just be a little slower.
