Do you? It clearly reads "Premium Fuel ONLY" right on the gas cover. You're not even saving that much anyways, this is like buying a 5 million dollar house and getting all your furniture from Walmart. Is the gas really breaking you like that?

I think he got the Q50FS (Free-Spirited), the gas tank has a different recommendation....

I would not run anything less than 91 octane, especially with the new VR motors!

Vote for Diesel, theres more power that can be utilized, and works great on our high compression engines

The 2015 Q50S says on the gas door Premium REQUIRED.

2015 Q50S, Moonlight Pearl White, Lighted kick panels, Navigation, package, none of the nanny drivers aids.

Manual specifically says use 91 AKI. Why reference edmunds instead of just following the manual?

I'm new to the Q50, but I know several people who've owned one for almost 2 years now and they run on 87, occasionally putting a 91 in there. One of them even did a mileage test with each, and he got the same result. Both of their cars are still fine.
I want to know where I can buy premium for an extra $0.20 as stated in the article. It is more like $0.70-$0.80 upcharge here. That is about a 25% upcharge!
