Volkswagen Petrol Engines Deliver Power and Economy on 95RON Fuel - (Australia)

August 21st, 2009
Previous - Next



Volkswagen Group Australia reviewed its minimum fuel requirement for all models fitted with petrol engines.

The review of the entire petrol engine range, which took into account current Australian fuel quality standards and the operating range of Volkswagen’s petrol engine, resulted in the reduction of the minimum fuel RON requirement on almost all engines.

Volkswagen now recommends a minimum 95RON for all petrol engines with the exception of three current models; Passat R36, Passat CC V6 and Golf R32 models.

The change to Volkswagen’s recommendation for the use of 95RON fuel is for all model year 2010 vehicles.

The vehicles affected by this change are listed below:
