Custom map.. normal or super unleaded

Post by Jamesno1 » Sat Oct 20, 2018 11:47 pm

Next weekend I'm taking my car to be mapped/calibrated /whatever it's called these days.

I usually run my car on super unleaded however to keep an element of safety I wonder should I have the car set up whilst running normal unleaded fuel so that in the event it gets a tankful of whatever in the future it won't cause any trouble. Or will the ECU retard ignition timing etc if it gets lower quality fuel down the line?

The tuner should factor this in

There will be a tables for 95octain fuel which will not need adjustments
